10 Dream Jobs For Millennials!

Finance Jobs UK believe that doing what you love and getting paid what you need to live shouldn’t be mutually exclusive.

New research just released in 2017 ranked the 10 best jobs for millennials.

The researchers arrived at the following list by asking more than 1,000 millennials in a survey to rank nine job traits that mattered most to them: Salary topped the list, followed by work-life balance, stress level, upward mobility, future job prospects, projected job growth percentage, unemployment rate, projected job growth volume, and the share of millennial workers.

The new list reflects the priorities of salary, work-life balance and low stress level, and takes into account the percentage of people ages 20 through 34 who work in the field as well as the degree to which each job offers upward mobility to young professionals.

The new list is as follows;
