Here Are This Year's 25 Best Jobs To Have In The United States

By

The best jobs in the country were revealed, and as one would expect, math and technology specialists still got it made.

According to Mashable, Glassdoor bases its annual list on the amount of money each position has the potential to earn, the amount of openings for the position and the career-advancement opportunities offered by each position.

The jobs were then given a score between one and five, with five being the best.

Coming in at the number one job overall was data scientist, earning a median base salary of about $116,000 a year and possessing plentiful career opportunities and high chances of securing those openings.

On the other hand, the largest salary, at $135,000, belongs to 12th-ranked software development manager, one of 11 jobs on the list with six-figure median salaries.

Last year's number one job, physician's assistant, is this year's number seven, thanks to a slight drop in its median base salary.

Technical account manager is ranked 20th, despite having the lowest median salary on the list and earning considerably less than the five jobs below it.
