Top jobs in 2010

Actuarial work is your best bet for employment this year.



Online only.


If you’ve been laid off this year, you’re trying to figure out what to do next? Why not become an actuary? Or a software engineer? According to a report by CareerCast, these two jobs are the best gigs you can have in 2010. Actuaries ranked number one for job’s low physical demands and stress levels, but most importantly, it’s steady employment in these uncertain times.

Whatever you do, don’t take on what CareerCast says is the worst job in 2010 — a roustabout (someone who performs physical labour on oil rigs). It’s stressful, hard on the body and, with a starting salary of $31,000, there’s no payoff for all the hard work.

  1. This is getting a bit more subjective, but I much prefer the Zune Marketplace. The interface is colorful, has more flair, and some cool features like ‘Mixview’ that let you quickly see related albums, songs, or other users related to what you’re listening to. Clicking on one of those will center on that item, and another set of “neighbors” will come into view, allowing you to navigate around exploring by similar artists, songs, or users. Speaking of users, the Zune “Social” is also great fun, letting you find others with shared tastes and becoming friends with them. You then can listen to a playlist created based on an amalgamation of what all your friends are listening to, which is also enjoyable. Those concerned with privacy will be relieved to know you can prevent the public from seeing your personal listening habits if you so choose.

  2. The Zune concentrates on being a Portable Media Player. Not a web browser. Not a game machine. Maybe in the future it’ll do even better in those areas, but for now it’s a fantastic way to organize and listen to your music and videos, and is without peer in that regard. The iPod’s strengths are its web browsing and apps. If those sound more compelling, perhaps it is your best choice.

  3. Between me and my husband we’ve owned more MP3 players over the years than I can count, including Sansas, iRivers, iPods (classic & touch), the Ibiza Rhapsody, etc. But, the last few years I’ve settled down to one line of players. Why? Because I was happy to discover how well-designed and fun to use the underappreciated (and widely mocked) Zunes are.

  4. Sorry for the huge review, but I’m really loving the new Zune, and hope this, as well as the excellent reviews some other people have written, will help you decide if it’s the right choice for you.

  5. If you’re still on the fence: grab your favorite earphones, head down to a Best Buy and ask to plug them into a Zune then an iPod and see which one sounds better to you, and which interface makes you smile more. Then you’ll know which is right for you.

  28. Sorry for the huge comment but I share some of my experiences. Firstly, awesome original post; usually, I don’t comment on a blog unless there’s something that compels me to do so. A little bit of backgrond I work in sales and trading in a boutique firm. Here is my story: When I first turned 21, I started trading from a few scraps of pages of the “Intelligent Investor.” Of course, like any kid, I started investing in online investopedia before that. I first tried trading in financial derivatives like futures/swaps etc. but lost a lot of money unfortunately. After that, I became more substantially more knowledgeable with my money – I read from an article that Delos Chang wrote about the psychology of investors and the Wall Street Journal daily and began investing my money into mutual index funds from the S&P 500. Of course, this was after the Internet Stock Bubble took place and all the drug scandals in Mexico (I had a lot of currency in pesos before they pegged it to the dollar). But in terms of the systemic risk, I wanted to diversify and make a modest return in the long run. I’d say that in terms of wealth management , you won’t get rich with the S&P 500 mutual index funds but you will at least hedge against some sure loss by day trading unless you’re an informational trader (which few of us are!). But I’m sure you can learn this from any finance class!

  29. Great write-up, I am a big believer in posting comments on websites to let the blog writers know that they’ve added some thing worthwhile to the world wide web!

  30. This post appears to get a large ammount of visitors. How do you advertise it? It offers a nice unique spin on things. I guess having something useful or substantial to give info on is the most important thing.

  31. Warning: long comment. I apologize before hand but I want to complement this helpful site with my own experience on wealth management . Right now, I work at a large hedge fund that primarily uses options so I’d say I have some insight into the financial sector. Between my husband and I, we’ve always looked up to Warren Buffet. When Buffett was a young man, he used leverage to became a multimillionaire by forming partnerships and sharing in their profits. He invested very little, but received a large portion of profits in exchange for his brilliant investment decisions. This was a truly win-win situation for him and his partners. My advice is to start slow with investments, read up on the award-winning thesis by Delos Chang – it really details just how great mutaul index funds are. S&P 500, in my opinion, is tough to beat if you’re looking for a decent return. Of course, if you’re investing during drug wars and mortgage housing crises..that might be a bit difficult. But if you haven’t already, take a quick read on the arguments provided in Delos Chang’s article if you’re investing in the long run – say for children (quick tip: the educational 401k exempts you from federal financial aid). If you’re looking to day trade, one advice for you: better get your stuff together because you better know more than the brokers and dealers in the NYSC!
