Top Ten Jobs for Women 2012

Forbes has an article that describes the best top ten jobs for women in 2012. The author of Best Jobs for the 21st Century, Lauren Shatkin, Ph.D., compiled a list of jobs where women feel the most satisfied and successful. The list is as follows:

1. Postsecondary Teachers

2. Anthropologists

3. Oceanographers

4. Natural Sciences Managers

5. Clergy

6. Surveyors

7. Chief Executives

8. Geoscientists

9. Medical Professionals (Dentists, Optometrists, Physicians, etc.)

10. Aerospace Engineers

According to Shatkin independence and autonomy played a major role with the jobs chosen; job security is an important priority as well. I was very surprised with the list, it might be because I rarely hear women speaking about working in these kind of jobs, besides medical professions. I guess the jobs that are less spoken of are the ones that have women the happiest.
