The best jobs for millennials include online jobs and jobs that can be done remotely. I’m all about work-life balance, and apparently Millennials are too. (Spoiler: I may be one myself). So, I was extra excited when I saw that US News conducted a survey of the best jobs for millennials, based on what is important to those born roughly in the 80s and 90s. Over 1,000 people between the ages of 20-34 were polled.
Here’s what was important the them and how they got their list of the best jobs for millennials: Young professionals are looking for a great salary, plenty of work-life balance, an ability to move upward, and to avoid stress. It seems like these things are a given, but people are starting to demand that their jobs have these things, and even ‘job hopping’ if a position puts them in a spot where they aren’t being paid well or are too stressed out. (Forbes talked about the defense of ‘job hopping’ recently and it totally resonated with me).
This absolutely explains why a portion of the best jobs for millennials include positions that can be an online career where you can work remotely. Including the highest salary job on the list – software developers ($98,000 per year). Translators, interpreters, computer systems analysts, insurance salesman, and web developers also made the list.
Here’s the top ten best jobs for millennials:
- Web developer
- Dental hygienist
- Software developer
- Computer systems analyst
- Mechanical engineer
- Interpreter or translator
- Radiation therapist
- Insurance sales agent
- Massage therapist
