CareerBuilder And EMSI Release Top Jobs For 2013





CHICAGO, Dec. 6, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Is finding a job on your list of New Year's resolutions?  CareerBuilder and Economic Modeling Specialists (EMSI) have released the best bachelor degree jobs for 2013 based on occupations with the most jobs added since 2010.  The study uses EMSI's rich labor market database, which pulls from over 90 national and state employment resources and includes detailed information on employees and self-employed workers.

"Where the U.S. will produce the most jobs in 2013 is likely to follow growth patterns of the last few years," said Matt Ferguson, CEO of CareerBuilder.  "It's no surprise that technology and engineering occupations comprise six of the top ten positions on our list, but workers should also see more opportunities in production-related fields, marketing, healthcare and financial services.  The competition for educated, specialized labor has intensified as market demands increase in both the manufacturing and services sectors."
