New Year’s Resolution: Quit Your Job, Become A Dentist
3:30 pm, December 19th | by Colette McIntyre
Dentistry is hot, hot, hot and it’s not because these mousepads exist. (Though those certainly don’t hurt.)
U.S News & World Report has released its annual ranking of the best jobs in the United States and dentistry of all things has come out on top. The list is based on the Labor Department’s predictions of the occupations with the highest hiring demand from now until 2020; selections take into account employment growth as well as median salary, estimated stress level, and work-life balance. Expected to grow 21.2% by 2020, dentistry is 2013′s best job while dental hygienists came in at number ten.
I don’t know what is going on but evidently, in 2013, teeth are totally fetch so get going on your dental school applications while you still can. Other professions in the top ten include pharmacist, computer systems analyst, database administrator, and web developer.
My mother was eager to point out that “blogger/lady of leisure” is nowhere to be found on U.S News’ list. In reply, I told her many reputable studies show that a girl can dream.
