"It's pretty typical, especially for the industries named such as anything in the network, data management, architect roles, being as some of the best,” Career Coach and Founder of Full Circle Recuiting Kewa Forde said.
“As far as some of the worst, it's also pretty typical — manual labor, lower pay ad less opportunities for growth,” Forde said.
Opportunity for growth, industry demand and job hazards play a part. The findings also include salary, long-term career opportunities and stability.
