Hot prospects and cool jobs in Colorado

Any of the universities in Colorado can help give you the skills for a job, but earning a degree in a growth field will improve your chances of employment. Denver Public Schools, IBM and Health One are some of the employers doing the most hiring right now, according to the state's Department of Labor and Employment. In addition, the department says computer support specialists, registered nurses, and web developers are hot occupations in the job market.

In 2010, Colorado professionals in these fields earned the following mean wages, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics:

  1. Computer support specialists: $55,990
  2. Computer systems analysts: $84,610
  3. Registered nurses: $67,280
  4. Software developers, applications: $90,970
  5. Special education teachers, middle school: $52,290
  6. Web developers: $82,880

With all Colorado has to offer, it is no wonder that Money Magazine selected five of the state's cities for its 2010 Best Places to Live list. As well as being a desirable place to live and work, Colorado could be a top choice for you to seek an education, too.
