Are you looking for America job

While some people look for jobs based on how much they pay, others factor in how happy they’ll be in a position when searching for work. That’s why the online job site Glassdoor believes the best jobs are those that offer professionals the chance to both make a good salary and be happy with what they’re doing.

For the second year in a row, Glassdoor says the job that best fits the bill is data scientist. The position again tops the website’s rankings of the best jobs in America.

Andrew Chamberlain, Glassdoor’s chief economist, said this year’s rankings reinforce that the best jobs are highly skilled and staying ahead of the growing trend toward workplace automation. “Nearly half the list is comprised of jobs within the fast-growing technology, health care and finance industries,” Chamberlain said in a statement. “In particular for tech jobs, companies across all industries are hiring workers for these needed positions, including employers in health care, finance, manufacturing, retail and more.”

The jobs on this year’s list are the positions with the highest Glassdoor Jobs Score. The Glassdoor Job Score is determined by weighing three factors equally: earning potential (median annual base salary), overall job satisfaction rating and number of job openings. The jobs that made this year’s list ranked highly in all three categories. The Glassdoor Job Score is based on a five-point scale, with 5 being the best.
