Employment portal Indeed recently released a list of the best jobs of 2024. Indeed considered a job position with a base salary of at least $75,000 (Rs 62 lakh), and around 10 per cent referencing remote or hybrid work.
The company observed the surge in job postings from January 2021 to 2024 and based on the data collected ranked by the number of listings per one million total postings.
Employees are still loving the flexible working opportunities which were revealed in a 2023 Bankrate survey of 2,000 people in the United States. The survey found that around 64 per cent of employees prefer remote work rather than fully in-person work.
However, the companies are bringing their employees back to the office as the competition for well-paying and flexible jobs is growing.
According to a report published by a job site, Ladders, the availability of hybrid jobs paying $100,000 or more surged by 69 per cent by the end of 2023. The report also mentioned that high-paying in-person roles surged by 93 per cent.
As per Indeed’s report, healthcare roles like medical director and psychiatrist were among the most well-paid on the list. The list is dominated by mental-health therapist and psychiatric-mental-health nurse practitioner job roles.
Loan officers are also among the top jobs with an average salary of $200,000 and 75 per cent of them are remote or hybrid. This job doesn’t require a bachelor’s degree.
