The Fifteen Jobs to Watch in 2019

As this year continue counting, job hunters around the country know that no two job opportunities are the same. Some have better work-life balance, some have flexible hours, and some have better pay, among other factors. Finding the right job for you could mean a host of different things.

Now, with the economy still in recovery mode and the unemployment rate still hovering just under 4 percent since last June,is now a great time for job seekers to make their move. The U.S. Department of Labor's Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) reported that as of November 2018, there were nearly seven million job openings.

"With such a healthy job market kicking off 2019, we're seeing many of these Best Jobs open for people to apply to and get hired at employers across all industries and in all areas of the country," said Amanda Stansell, economic research analyst at Glassdoor.

So with all this on ground, if you are a job hunter looking for how to find out which position offers the best opportunities, then a recent list from Glassdoor may pique your interest. Earlier this month, the job recruitment site released its annual list of the "50 Best Jobs in America."

The list was determined by weighing three factors: earning potential, overall job satisfaction and the number of job openings. In order to be considered for the list, a position must have at least 100 salary reports and at least 100 job satisfaction ratings on the website from U.S.-based employees from Jan. 1, 2018 to Jan. 1, 2019.

According to Glassdoor, tech jobs remained the top-ranked industry with 19 positions making the cut. That number is slightly down from the 20 positions that made the list in 2018. This year's list features eight jobs from the healthcare industry (only five were on last year's list). Some of those positions include dental hygienist, physical therapist and radiologic technologist.

The job with the most openings is software engineer, with just over 49,000 job openings. The highest-paid job this year is software engineering manager, with an average yearly salary of $153,000.

"There's no question that emerging technologies designed to grow and scale business, such as artificial intelligence, machine learning and automation, are having an impact on the types of jobs employers are hiring for across the country," Stansell said. "As a result, we're seeing a spike in demand for highly skilled workers in 2019."

That demand for skilled workers is expected to grow, according to a recent Glassdoor Economic Research Study, which suggests that as American workers continue to age out of their careers, there will likely be more retirees than children by 2035.
