10. Interpreters and Translators

With a growing Latino and increasingly diversified population in the United States, there is a demand for interpreters and translators in 2014, among other occupations that make up the Top 12 high-wage, in-demand, skilled positions this year.

While high-paying jobs that offer financial and career security are enticing, there is another perk that comes along with being an interpreter and a translator -- personal gratification for helping students and families in need of support and clarification. (The Latin Post takes a closer look at this trend further into the story.)

CareerBuilder teamed up with Economic Modeling Specialists Intl. (EMSI) to identify the occupations that grew by at least seven percent from 2010 to 2013, are projected to grow in 2014, and pay at least $22 per hour. EMSI data is collected from more than 90 federal and state sources, such as the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, the U.S. Census Bureau and state labor departments, according to Business Insider.

7. Logisticians

Philip Rudy, from DiakonLogistics.com, explains why he loves his career in logistics and why other people should think about becoming a ‘logistician’

Logistics is one of the most important career fields in the world. Without the planning and execution of the distribution of resources, society as we know it would cease to function and food shortages would cause chaos around the world.

Every company uses logistics even though full-time logistics managers may not be employed. The work of a logistician begins with bringing in the supplies and raw materials necessary for a business or organization to operate. Inbound logistics are then used in conjunction with outbound logistics to distribute products or services where they are in demand.

If you are thinking about a career change, the field of logistics has much to offer.
