Good news jobseekers!

A new report lists the hottest jobs for 2016, meaning these occupations are in demand and projected to see growth in the coming year.

To compile the list of sweet gigs, CareerBuilder partnered with Economic Modeling Specialists Intl. (EMSI). A media release explains that these are occupations where “the number of job ads companies post each month outpace the number of people they actually hire. The list includes other data points, such as job growth and salary, which together indicate that these well-paying occupations have seen healthy growth and may be in demand in the coming year.”

Matt Ferguson, CEO of CareerBuilder and co-author of The Talent Equation, is quoted as saying:

“While many of these jobs are in the technology and health care sectors, there are also plenty of opportunities in areas such as marketing, sales and transportation. The availability of jobs across industries underscores the need for companies to evaluate where their talent deficits are and become more strategic about how they fill these needs–whether that means reskilling their current workers, offering higher salaries to attract workers, or using data analytics to target talent with the right skills.”
