      Judith... above list is about popular careers in USA. These careers will comparably have more job openings in coming years. Truth is no mater what career you chose just try to achieve excellence in that field and you'll never go jobless. Coroner is a very demanding field and i am sure there are lots of jobs in it. Still you need an excellent resume to get a dream job. So what ever you do, do it well.

      Terrific List. I'd add one more.. Maybe instead of the financial analyst. Federal government services. The average federal government worker is paid on par with the private sector and has a benefits package that far exceeds the equivalent private sector job. It is also a growing sector. Thanks for the list.
