Best jobs for 2015 Metro hotspots and key industries driving employment




TAKING THE TOP FIVE JOBS IN EACH EDUCATION CATEGORY, WE DETERMINED WHERE THEIR GROWTH, WAGES, AND CONCENTRATION ARE STRONGEST, AS WELL AS THE KEY INDUSTRIES DRIVING EMPLOYMENT FOR THESE OCCUPATIONS.
In our recent analysis with CareerBuilder, we distilled the top occupations (both degree-requiring and no-degree-requiring) whose monthly job postings are distinctly higher than the number of hires—meaning employers advertising for those jobs are on a vigorous hunt for talent. In this post we wanted to dig deeper. Taking the top five jobs in each education category, we determined where their growth, wages, and concentration are strongest, as well as the key industries driving employment for these occupations.
The upshot: San Francisco, San Jose, Seattle, Houston, Dallas, and Detroit are the usual suspects for top metro areas (especially for the occupations requiring a college degree) and a number of the occupations share the same key industries, such as management of companies and enterprises (NAICS 5511) and computer systems design and related services (NAICS 5415).
