You’ve probably never heard of the fastest-growing job in the country

The U.S. added 211,000 jobs in April with white-collar firms performing especially well. But while employment increased overall, it rose in some states — and specific industries — more than others.

The fastest growing job in the country between 2012 to 2016 was a “solar photovoltaic installer” — someone who assembles solar panels on roofs, according to a recent study from personal finance technology company SmartAsset. It pays an average salary of $42,500 a year, less than the median annual household income of $58,673.

Nationally, mathematics and computer (STEM) occupations were the second-fastest growing field, but only one state in the country had a fastest growing job in that field: Michigan.
