Millions of workers have thought about changing and quitting their jobs in recent months, and some Americans even have unretired. People who are currently thinking about joining the Great Resignation or taking on new opportunities may want to consider jobs that have quickly grown over the last couple of years.

LinkedIn recently published its annual “Jobs on the Rise” list for the US, based on the company’s internal data on jobs started by the career networking site’s users. This year’s list shows the fastest-growing job titles using growth rates from January 2017 through July 2021.

As American workers quit their jobs, take a chance at moving into new industries, and evaluate if they’re satisfied with their work duties, the list may be useful for figuring out their next career move amid the tight labor market. 

“The Great Resignation – or as we call it at LinkedIn, the Great Reshuffle – shows no signs of slowing,” Andrew Seaman, senior editor for job search and careers at LinkedIn News, told Insider via email. 

Seaman added that along with the national data showing record quits, “new LinkedIn data indicates professionals will continue to make job changes this year: 62% of working Americans are considering a job change in 2022, with one quarter (24%) currently looking.”

LinkedIn writes that “To be ranked, jobs needed to see consistent growth across our membership base, as well as have grown to a meaningful size by 2021.”

“Many of the jobs on this list have been growing directly because of the pandemic’s effect on the economy,” Seaman told Insider.

“No matter what stage of your career you’re in, this list provides insight into where the workforce is heading and where long-term opportunity lies,” LinkedIn wrote in the US report. 

Below are the titles that made the top of the US list with information from the new report. The salary range for each title, except for vaccine specialist, comes from LinkedIn and is noted in parentheses.
