10 fastest growing jobs over the next 10 years

According to a recent article in US News and World Report, the occupations projected to grow fastest between 2008 and 2018 are:
  1. Biomedical engineers (72% projected growth)
  2. Network systems and data communications analysts (53%)
  3. Home health aids (50%)
  4. Personal and home care aids (46%)
  5. Financial examiners (41%)
  6. Medical scientists, except epidemiologists (40%)
  7. Physician assistants (39%)
  8. Skin care specialists (38%)
  9. Biochemists and biophysicists (37%)
  10. Athletic trainers (37%)
That's a very interesting list. They source the Bureau of Labor Statistics and remark that some of the median income levels for some of these positions (such as home care aids) is less than $20k. Half of the top 20 fastest-growing careers are related to healthcare (no surprise there).
