Best Job in the WorldYou might think you have the best job in the world; but according to experts you probably don’t. Glassdoor is a website where current and former employees can review companies and their management. According to them the best job in America right now is data scientist. Data Science Association founder and President Michael Walker says in the digital age the amount of information out there is only going to grow. And someone needs to take that information, organize it and set up systems to take advantage of what we’re learning. Walker says the field is new and everyone is still trying to figure out how it all works. But looking at Glassdoor’s rankings it’s no surprise data scientist is the top job. The average starting salary is $110,000 and because of high demand there are openings all across the country. People in the field say they often work as a team and that no two days are the same. And while it might require a computer class or two, as the world becomes more connected you won’t have to worry about job security.
