Technology and engineering jobs are likely to dominate work opportunities for 2013, a national employment and consulting firm said Thursday.
"Where the United States will produce the most jobs in 2013 is likely to follow the growth patterns of the last few years," CareerBuilder Chief Executive Officer Matt Ferguson said in a statement.
"It's no surprise that technology and engineering occupations comprise six of the top 10 positions on our list," of the most common jobs since the U.S. recession ended, Ferguson said.
Counting jobs that require bachelor's degrees, CareerBuilder said software developing has produced the most jobs since 2010 with 70,872 new jobs and a growth rate of 7 percent.
The top five includes accountants and auditors with 37,123 jobs, with a 3 percent growth rate since 2010; marketing, 31,335 jobs and 10 percent growth; computer systems analysts, 26,937 jobs, 5 percent growth; human resources, training and labor relations, 22,773 jobs, 5 percent growth.
Six through 10 include, in descending order, network and computer systems administrators; sales representatives; information security analysts, Web developers and computer network architects; mechanical engineers; and industrial engineers.
