5. Financial Planner

Salary: $64,750
Change From 2012: No Change

Financial planners manage people's money and retirement plan for them. There has always been demand for financial planners but that demand increased during the recession when so many people saw their life savings start to evaporate with the stock market.

"People were banking on the value of their home and it collapsed. They were banking on the value of their IRA and they find out — 'I'm ill-prepared and I need help,'" Lee said.

This job scores high because of the income, hiring outlook and physical environment.
