The so-called “best” job, then?

“Data Scientist”. With an average job satisfaction rating of 4.2 (out of 5), a median base salary of $110,000 and 4,524 openings currently listed on site, it doesn’t sound too shabby.

How does one find a job that offers the trifecta of good pay, high job satisfaction, and plenty of openings?
