The 10 Best Jobs Of 2015

Here’s a very interesting article from Huff Post Business. From the article you can see that Actuary is the best job, Mathematician in 3rd place follow by Statistician in 4th place.


If you’re a math whiz, you’re in luck when it comes to job prospects.

Math skills are a requirement for most of the 10 best jobs of 2015, according to the latest report from CareerCast. The site’s annual ranking of the top 200 jobs weighs four factors: work environment, income, stress and hiring outlook.

“There’s a real shortage of qualified people with math skills,” said Tony Lee, publisher of “And that’s offset by higher salaries. So not only do you have the opportunity to do what you love, you get paid really well and will likely have a pretty bright hiring prospect.”

Actuaries, who analyze financial risk, locked in the top spot this year, followed closely by audiologists (health care professionals who treat hearing disorders), mathematicians and statisticians. Science and health care jobs are also represented, with dental hygienists and occupational therapists breaking into the top 10.
