IF YOU'RE IN THE MARKET FOR A NEW JOB, YOU COULD HAVE SOME MAJOR LUCK DURING THE NEW YEAR.

22NEWS REPORTER ALESSANDRA MARTINEZ IS LIVE AT OUR HAMPSHIRE COUNTY BUREAU AFTER DISCOVERING WHAT SOME OF THE BEST JOBS ARE PREDICTED TO BE FOR 2017.

CAREER BUILDER HAS COMPILED A LIST OF SOME OF THE HOTTEST JOBS FOR 2017 THAT FOCUSES ON ANALYTICS, PRODUCT DEVELOPMENT, AND SALES.

AND YOU CAN SEE A LIST OF THOSE JOBS ON A DISPLAY ON YOUR SCREEN.

THEY INCLUDE I-T POSITIONS, HEALTH CARE, AND SKILLS TRADES.

CAREER BUILDER MADE THIS LIST BY LOOKING AT 3 FACTORS: JOBS THAT MADE ON AVERAGE 20-DOLLARS AN HOUR, HAVE GROWN FASTER THAN THE OVERALL JOBS MARKET OVER THE LAST 4 YEARS, AND HAVE THE MOST JOB OPENINGS.

SOME CAREERS, LIKE SKILL TRADES, MAY HAVE MORE OPENINGS BECAUSE OF HOW THEY'RE PERCEIVED.

PEOPLE ARE TYPICALLY UNDERPAID IN THE TRADES, AND PEOPLE DON'T WANT TO DO THOSE JOBS, SO THE QUESTION OF WHETHER WE SHOULD FUNNEL PEOPLE INTO THOSE JOBS IS, YOU KNOW, DO WE WANT PEOPLE TO BE UNDERPAID IN THIS INDUSTRY OR UNDERPAID IN ANOTHER INDUSTRY? THE INDUSTRY WITH THE HIGHEST INCREASE IN JOB OPPORTUNITY IN THE LAST 4 YEARS WAS I-T JOBS, WITH A 12% INCREASE.

OUT OF THE JOBS ON THIS LIST, THEY ALSO MADE THE MOST MONEY, AVERAGEING $40 AN HOUR.
