The Top 200 Jobs of 2010: 21 - 40

Moving outside the top 20 jobs of the 2010 Jobs Rated rankings, many professions in the 21 - 40 range still demand extensive education and advanced degrees for success – Civil Engineer, Physicist and Astronomer, for example – but this is not universal. However, all of these careers require candidates to have highly specialized training in order to land a job.

Of the many career choices available in this group, job seekers concerned about long-term security would be best-served applying to be a Stenographer/Court Reporter, Geologist or Occupational Therapist, as these three jobs boast the 9th, 14th and 16th-best hiring outlooks for 2010, respectively.
