Best Jobs in America

MONEY Magazine and Salary.com put out a research report on the top 10 best jobs in America based on growth, pay, and stress-level. Ranked at No. 6 is Market research analyst. Here is their reasoning:

Why it’s great: If you want to know what the next big thing is, this is your field. Before launching a product or service, companies turn to market research analysts who collect and evaluate data about consumer wants, needs and buying habits.

You get to work on a huge variety of projects: In a single day you might run a taste test on a new vodka flavor, evaluate a re-branding campaign for a hot dog and analyze political polling data.

What’s cool: Testing products before they hit the market. You talk to lots of people and get to ask them personal questions you wouldn’t dare pose at a party.

What’s not: Being mistaken for a telemarketer; deadlines; number crunching.

Top-paying job: A senior exec or partner in a consulting firm can earn more than $200,000.

Education: B.A.; M.A. in statistics helps.

1. Software Engineer
