"While there certainly have been positive indicators for employment in 2011 -- The National Association of Colleges and Employers says employers plan to hire 13.5 percent more new college graduates in 2011 than in 2010, and the Federal Reserve predicts that in 2011, the unemployment rate may drop below 9 percent for the first time since April of 2009 -- the job market will continue to be competitive this year.
But pursuing certain occupations will surely provide job seekers with a more fortunate and fruitful return than others. If you're looking for a new job this year, consider honing your skills and applying to a job in one of these 10 occupations, all of which are expected to experience growth this year, and pay more than the national average salary of $43,460."
