13 interview questions you might have to answer if you want the 'best job in America'


Data scientist is the best job in America in 2016, according to a recent report from Glassdoor.

The top ranking was based on Glassdoor's analysis of earning potential, career opportunities, and number of job openings. The median base pay was $116,840.

Dr. Andrew Chamberlain, Glassdoor's chief economist, explained the position's rise this way to Business Insider: "Since all companies have an online presence these days, they all need people who know how to manage and store data that helps them make better business decisions, compared to years ago when businesses didn't have data management at their fingertips to review and analyze to help them drive business forward. I expect this to continue to be a hot job for several years to come, too,"
