If you just graduated (or have a child or friend who did) and have been terrified by the recent reports on the dismal jobs situation for career starters, fear not. There is hope. Career site CareerBliss did a bit of number crunching to determine not only which career tracks are set to have the most openings, but also determined average salaries in each field and whether employees are happy in their jobs. Here at BNET, we checked the CareerBliss numbers against public stats available from the Bureau of Labor Statistics and also dug around for any potential pitfalls for those thinking about each opportunity. The resulting gallery of ten top careers for grads should make for more cheerful reading.
