There’s a new article on Monster.com about the best-paying, most-in-demand jobs out there. The people in them have a lower unemployment rate than average, and more job opportunities should open up in the next few years. –Obviously you won’t be able to go out and get any of these jobs if you aren’t qualified. But BECOMING qualified might not be a bad idea.

1.) Certified Financial Planners. There’s been a surge in the industry because of the economy. With a bachelor’s degree, certification, and a few years experience, a financial planner can make around $90,000 a year.

2.) Biomedical Engineers. You need a bachelor’s degree that’s heavy in physics, biology, math, and engineering. But according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, it’s expected to be the fastest-growing job between now and 2018.

After five to seven years of experience, the median salary is just over $81,000.

3.) Marketing Consultants. Some are self-employed, some work at ad firms, and some work in marketing departments for corporations. Most only have a bachelor’s degree, and after five years of experience, the median salary is more than $87,000.

4.) Physician Assistants. They usually have a master’s degree, and you have to get licensed. But once you do, you can expect to make around $92,000 a year.

5.) IT Security Consultants. They do things like securing Wi-Fi networks and encrypting hard drives for businesses. The median annual income after five-to-seven years of experience is just under $100,000.

6.) Actuaries. It’s the job Edward Norton’s character has in “Fight Club”. An actuary works for an insurance company, and calculates the odds of different disasters . . . like house fires and hurricanes.

Then the insurance company uses that information to set their rates. You need a bachelor’s degree, and have to get certified. But after five years of experience, you can expect to make around $140,000 a year. (Monster.com)
