While these jobs are estimated to experience the most growth, they don't necessarily pay well and many do not require a four-year college degree. Forbes points out that:
- The six jobs with the most projected growth do not require a four-year college degree.
- Four jobs on the list have a median wage under $30,000.
- Eight jobs on the list pay less than the national median wage of $54,000.
Thirteen of the jobs are in the health care industry, likely due in part to the growing percentage of seniors in the population. Five jobs are related to physical and occupational therapy.
