The 25 Best Jobs in America in 2015

Posted by Natalie Pike on January 30, 2015

It's 2015 and the importance of HR management is greater than ever before. So, answer me this: are you managing an atmosphere that makes employees excited to be there? Enough so that they'd take the time to write a positive review about the company? If you're not, it's time to make some changes. Research about the company is one of the first things job seekers do. This week, Glassdoor released their annual report of the 25 Best Jobs in America for 2015.

The report is based on Glassdoor's Job Score for each individual position. According to their website, the Glassdoor Job Score "is determined using three key factors – earning potential based on average annual base salary, career opportunities rating and number of job openings." The positions on the list highlight all three of these categories. 

Below are the top 10 jobs in America this year. To get the inside scoop on the remaining 15 positions, take a look at Glassdoor's article.
