Here’s a list of engineering and technology jobs that are rated by CareerCast.com for 2016 and beyond. CareerCast ranks these professions by hiring outlook, work environment, stress, and income.
The hiring outlook ranking is based on a combination of Department of Labor projections as well as factors such as hiring and unemployment. Work environment is scored by a combination of physical factors as well as emotional factors. Stress is determined by a number of metrics, including travel, deadlines, growth potential, competitiveness, and more. Income is a simple average of starting salaries, mid-level salaries, and senior salaries.
