There have been shake-ups for the year 2014. The BLS has taken a closer look at where the most expected opportunities are. This year, US News has ranked 18 new jobs, while 19 jobs were dislodged from the list completely, and the biggest change is that for the first time, the overall No. 1 job is a tech job in US and not from the health care industry.

From the 7th position in 2013, Software Developers in US raised to the top spot this year, making it the most attractive job. The demand for Software developers in US is expected to increase 23% by 2022.
