The 15 best entry-level jobs in 2016
To help those entering the job market figure out where the greatest opportunities lie, personal finance site WalletHub used data from the US Bureau of Labor Statistics, Oxford Martin School at the University of Oxford, Indeed.com, and Salary.com to find the best and worst entry-level jobs.
To compile its ranking, WalletHub analyzed 109 entry-level occupations to determine their immediate opportunity, growth potential, and job hazards. It assessed these factors based on 11 metrics, including median starting salary, unemployment rate, projected job growth by 2024, income growth potential, probability of the job being replaced by a computer, and number of fatal occupational injuries.
Each of the 11 metrics were given a value between 0 and 100 (100 represents the most favorable conditions for a specific entry-level position and 0 the least), and WalletHub then calculated the score for each entry-level position using the weighted average across all metrics and ranked the jobs accordingly.
