jobs printCareerBuilder and Economic Modeling Specialists International (EMSI) have compiled a list of 12 of the highest paying, fastest growing jobs for 2014. The list includes occupations that grew by at least 7 percent between 2010 and 2013 and are projected to increase in 2014 as well. Each job also falls within a higher-wage category of $22 per hour or more.

“More high-wage jobs will be created in 2014 which will, in turn, fuel the creation of jobs at lower pay levels,” said Matt Ferguson, CEO of CareerBuilder. “The challenge is many of these in-demand, skilled positions are in areas where companies are already experiencing a shortage of qualified labor. As a nation, we need to focus on reskilling workers of all ages and providing them with affordable education to catch up to labor demands in technology, healthcare and other key sectors.”
