The novel coronavirus pandemic has had a major effect on employment in nearly every industry over the past few months. However, the future of work is still looking pretty bright for medical and tech jobs, based on data and projections from the US Labor Department.

As Americans look forward to finding their next potential job, Business Insider decided to look at high-paying jobs that have bright futures ahead of them.  

The Bureau of Labor Statistics’ Employment Projections program publishes estimates for job growth across hundreds of occupations. The most recent release came out this month and compares how many people worked in each occupation in 2019 with the Bureau’s projections for 2029.

We combined those job growth projections with 2019 median annual earnings for each occupation from the Bureau’s Occupational Employment Statistics program, using the geometric mean of the two numbers, to find roles that are both growing and high-paying.

Since we are focused on high-paying jobs, we restricted our ranking to occupations with 2019 median earnings above the median among all occupations of $39,810.

Here are the 30 best jobs of the next decade or so:
