Thinking about changing jobs next year? CareerBuilder and Emsi reveal the best places to look.

Sometimes you just need a break from your day-to-day, or a change of scenery or you simply want to try something new. We all consider changing careers from time to time. If you feel that 2017 is right to gain new experience in a different industry, then this is a good place to start.

CareerBuilder and Emsi, a labor market data provider, have compiled a new study of job categories and occupations that will provide the best opportunity for job seekers in the New Year. Three distinct factors were taken into account such as: jobs must pay around $20 or more per hour, occupations must have grown faster than the market over the last 4 years and the job categories must have a large number of workers already employed across the nation.

Matt Ferguson, CEO of CareerBuilder and co-author of The Talent Equation, says, “Our research shows that employers are very invested in expanding headcount in areas such as analytics and data science, product development and sales as they strive to stay competitive in B2B and B2C markets. Skilled laborers will also see high employment demand in the year ahead as will workers in clinical roles.”
