Jobs & Companies

Each year, US News and World Report compiles a list of the “Best Jobs” drawing on data from the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics to identify jobs with the greatest hiring demand. Jobs are then scored using seven component measures: 10-year growth volume, 10-year growth percentage, median salary, employment rate, future job prospects, stress level and work-life balance. The rankings offer a look at the best jobs across 15 categories – including the Best STEM Jobs.

To learn more about companies that employees say are great places to work, start with Fortune’s list of “100 Best Companies to Work For”. Each year, Fortune creates the list based on millions of employee responses to a 60 question survey about their employers.  Eighty-five percent of the evaluation is based on what employees report about their experiences of trust and reaching their full human potential as part of their organization.  The results are analyzed relative to each organization’s size, workforce make up, and what’s typical in their industry and region. The remaining fifteen percent includes an assessment of employees’ daily experiences of the company’s values, their ability to contribute new ideas, and the effectiveness of their leaders.
