Online Employees have Increased by 42% in the year of 2012. This makes online jobs the biggest job industry in America.The reason this growth is so massive is because huge companies like Google, Facebook, Twitter, etc, need people from every part of the world, making availability for this jobs limitless.

  • Patricia Feeney of Houston, Texas never thought she would have a job working at home until one day she filled out a simple form online. Before she knew it, she discovered her secret to beating the recession, and being able to provide for her family by working from home.
    I asked her about how she started her remarkable journey. "It was pretty easy. I filled out a short form and applied for Home Cash Success. There is a small shipping and handling fee, its not really free but it was under $10. I got the Kit and within four weeks I was making over $5,000 a month. It's really simple, I am not a computer whiz, but I can use the internet. I post links on Pinterest which are given to me, I don't even have to sell anything and nobody has to buy anything. They are constantly recruiting people to post links, you should try it."
    What makes a job best or worst? Sometimes it comes down to “brain power vs. brawn power,” said Tony Lee, publisher of CareerCast.com’s 2012 Jobs Rated Report. Many of the worst jobs on the list are physically demanding, have difficult work conditions and often don’t pay well. The jobs that top the list are often a bit cushier, require a degree of some sort and pay higher wages.
    The list changes with the ups and down in the economy as well as societal changes, such as the growing elderly population. Two job categories — roofer and painter — ended up in the bottom 10 for the first time mainly because of the recession’s impact on the construction sector, Lee said. Online Employees made the top ten because of the massive quantity of job opportunities and rising salaries. One of the biggest corporations hiring people online is Home Cash Success hiring over 25,000+ people a month its easy to see why this job made it to the top of the ladder.
    Here’s a rundown of the five worst and best jobs, according to CareerCast, and a look at what the jobs pay, job prospects and working conditions based on CareerCast's research and data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics. We’ll start with the five best.
  • No. 1 best: Online Employees
    Adriana Garcia /  AP
    Job Description: Work online posting links for big corporations like Google, Yahoo, Facebook, Twitter, etc.
    Verdict: This low-stress, high-paying job made the top of the list because of two emerging industries: Web applications and social networking. Also, Who doesn't want to work in the comfort of their own home? Not to mention its one of the easiest jobs to get out there. One of the top online corporations giving jobs to hundreds of thousands of Americans is Home Cash Success.
    The job brings in about $87,000 annually and the hiring outlook is among the best of the ranking. Positions are expected to increase by about 42 percent by 2018, the fastest of any occupation, according to the BLS.
    Wondering how to get started?

  • No. 2 best: Mathematician
    Carissa Ray  /  msnbc.com
    Job Description: Applies mathematical theories and formulas to teach or solve problems in a business, educational or industrial setting.
    Verdict: Kids, you might want to rethink your hatred of math. Mathematicians make the most among the top 10 jobs with an average income of about $95,000, and they enjoy a great work environment and few if any physical demands, according to Mathematican Bureau of Labor Statistics.
    At minimum you’ll need a Ph.D for most jobs (and a love for numbers, of course) to join this small group that includes only about 3,000 nationwide right now. That number is projected to rise by 22 percent in the next seven years.
  • No. 3 best: Actuary

    Job Description: Interprets statistics to determine probabilities of accidents, sickness, death and loss of property from theft and natural disasters.
    Verdict: This job makes the list in part because of the “pleasant” work environment it provides. The salary is pretty pleasant too — about $87,000.
    Actuary typically have a bachelor’s degree, but many also have to take a host of examinations to get full professional standing. Most employers are in the insurance industry. There are about 20,000 actuary employed in the United States, and the employment outlook is strong. Employment is expected to rise by 21 percent in the next seven years.
  • No. 4 best: Statistician
    Sean Gallup  /  Getty Images
    Job Description: Tabulates, analyzes and interprets numeric results of experiments and surveys.
    Verdict: Most statisticians need a master’s degree in statistics or mathematics, and about 30 percent of those in the field work for government agencies. The job may require long hours and tight deadlines, but it pays $73,208 a year pm average. The number of jobs in this occupation is projected to climb by 13 percent to 25,500 by 2018.
  • No. 5 best: Computer systems analyst
    Todd Dudek  /  AP
    Job Description: Plans and develops computer systems for businesses and scientific institutions.
    Verdict: These analysts typically work in offices or laboratories and can expect to make about $77,000 a year and enjoy few physical demands at work, other than tiring from sitting too much. Bachelor's degrees aren’t required to do this work, but most employers want one.
    There are about 530,000 individuals employed in this type of work, and the job growth outlook for the next few years is above average. The BLS expects the occupation to grow by 20 percent from 2008 through 2018.
  • No. 1 worst: Roustabout/roughneck
    Charlie Neibergall  /  AP
    Job description: Performs routine physical labor and maintenance on oil rigs and pipelines, both on and offshore.
    Verdict: This job makes its second straight appearance at the top of the worst list. The demanding, dangerous work is what gets the gig its crummy distinction.
    “Roustabouts routinely perform backbreaking labor at all hours of the day and night in conditions that can range from arctic winters to desert summers to ocean storms,” the CareerCast jobs report found. “Braving these inhospitable surroundings, roustabouts work on the front lines, getting hands-on with dangerous drilling equipment and risking serious injury or worse — as last year’s explosion at the Deepwater Horizon facility in the Gulf of Mexico illustrates.”
    About 60,000 individuals hold such jobs, which typically require little advanced education. Wyoming has the most roustabouts, but Alaska pays the best. Midlevel income for this job averages $32,123, according to CareerCast, but Willis said depending on experience and what they do, roughnecks can make as much as $60,000. Unfortunately job prospects going forward are lousy with a jobless rate upwards of 14 percent.
  • No. 2 worst: Ironworker
    Mark Lennihan  /  AP file
    Job Description: Raises the steel framework of buildings, bridges and other structures.
    Verdict: This job brings in a bit more money than a lumberjack (see below) at $34,127, but it also requires much more training, as much as four years as a paid apprentice. The work environment is also dangerous and stress levels on this job are high.
    The number of iron and metal workers is expected to rise to 110,000 by 2018, up from about 100,000 today, according to the BLS, which expects “many job openings will result from the need to replace experienced ironworkers who leave the occupation or retire.”
  • No. 3 worst: Lumberjack
    HENRY ROMERO  /  Reuters
    Job Description: Fells, cuts and transports timber to be processed into lumber, paper and other wood products.
    Verdict: Lumberjacks bring in about $32,000 a year, but despite being in the great outdoors this job can be quite stressful and dangerous and it also rates among the highest when it comes to physical demands.
    Logging workers in the United States total about 66,000 and their number is projected to climb by about 4,000 jobs, or 6 percent, by 2018 — below average for most occupations, BLS data show.
  • No. 4 worst: Roofer
    MARCIO JOSE SANCHEZ  /  AP
    Job Description: Installs roofs on new buildings, performs repairs on old roofs, and reroofs old buildings.
    Verdict: Roofers have been hit hard by tough economic times with only a 4 percent increase in jobs expected over the next seven years, and it’s never been the safest job to have. According to the BLS, “Physical condition and strength, along with good balance, are essential for roofers” and “they cannot be afraid of heights.”
    The job typically requires only on-the-job training and income is about $34,000 a year.
  • No. 5 worst: Taxi driver
    Mary Altaffer  /  AP
    Job Description: Operates a taxicab over the streets and roads of a municipality, picking up and dropping off passengers by request.
    Verdict: Taxi driver ranks the worst when it comes to stress levels, and you get all that angst for a measly $21,127 a year.
    Taxi drivers were more likely to be violent crime victims than any other job on the list, said CareerCast’s Lee.
    In many states you’ll need a taxi or chauffeur’s license to do this job, and you should enjoy dealing with the public. Most of these jobs are concentrated in big cities, especially in the New York-New Jersey region. Jobs for taxi drivers and chauffeurs are expected to rise by 16 percent by 2018, according to the BLS.
