12 Fast-Growing, High-Paying Jobs In 2014

What are the hottest jobs of 2014?

CareerBuilder teamed up with Economic Modeling Specialists Intl. (EMSI) to identify the occupations that grew by at least 7% from 2010 to 2013, are projected to grow in 2014, and pay at least $22 per hour.

"In addition to higher pay levels and solid growth rates, what many of these jobs have in common is a talent shortage," Matt Ferguson, CEO of CareerBuilder and co-author of the book "The Talent Equation," tells Business Insider. "Recruitment of skilled labor in specialized areas like information technology and health care has become highly competitive."Advertisement
