“With the New Year, people often think of the New Year, a new me, a new job,” said Amanda Stansell, data scientist at Glassdoor Economic Research.

As CBS 2’s Tim McNicholas reported, Stansell said she saw the most job applications in January.

To help those speeding up their job search, Glassdoor has published a list of the 50 Best Jobs in the United States looking at three main factors.

“We’re looking at median annual base salary, job satisfaction and the number of open positions in the United States,” Stansell said.

So what made the list?

“Almost half of the roles are technical roles,” Stansell said.

Indeed, the tech industry quickly turned to remote working and was able to meet all the challenges presented by the new “office space” at home.

“So the Java developer was the number one job on this year’s list,” Stansell said.

Java is a widely used programming language.

“Java developers are therefore responsible for the design, development and management of Java-based web applications,” Stansell said.

The position was rated 4.2 out of 5, an average salary of $ 90,000 and more than 10,000 open positions across the country.

And while you don’t currently have all of the credentials to qualify for one of these positions, Stansell said there are steps you can take to acquire them.

“Java Developer, along with several other tech jobs on this list require technical training. However, there are plenty of opportunities to take a coding boot camp if you don’t have the skills now and want to become a Java developer or a software engineer, or even a data scientist, ”she said.
