We partnered with Gallup to create a free research tool that enables students to explore the top “careers of the future” and compare job possibilities. The index ranks hundreds of careers according to their 1) pay, 2) job growth, 3) job openings, 4) resistance to AI, and 5) level of education required. The database also includes diversity statistics about each job according to gender, race and ethnicity.

Both in-school and out-of-school offerings of computer science (CS) learning opportunities are expanding, but their influences on CS career interests are unclear. We interpret these findings to suggest that out-of-school CS learning may offer more exposure to CS professionals and real-world challenges, which may foster students’ CS career interests.
Making sure America’s youth can identify, pursue and thrive in a rewarding career is deeply important. That’s why Gallup and Amazon have partnered to provide the data and tools to help guide young adults and those who advise them.
