Chiropractic One of Fast Company’s Top
A recent article in Fast Company magazine
confirms what many recent Sherman graduates and
current students already know – becoming a
doctor of chiropractic is a great career choice.
It’s number four on the list, to be exact.
Fast Company relied on the work of the
Bureau of Labor Statistics, Salary.com, and an
innovation expert to evaluate top jobs for 2005.
Jobs were evaluated based on four categories:
job growth, salary potential, education level
and room for innovation.

Fast Company chose careers that are in
high demand. Because job growth is so important,
the company used the Bureau of Labor Statistics
(BLS) projected job growth data through 2012 and
weighted it 35 percent.
Money is also an important consideration, so
Fast Company based its salary range on the
difference between the 10th percentile earnings
and the 90th percentile earnings for a given
job, using BLS and Salary.com data. Salary range
was also given a 35 percent share of the total
Investment in education is also an indicator of
a great job, according to Fast Company.
The education score is based on what percentage
of those working in the field hold a college
degree, according to BLS data. This aspect was
weighted 20 percent.
Finally, the company noted that a great job
gives you room to run. Fast Company
turned to Dr. Kevin Stolarick to determine the
level of innovation and creativity of certain
fields. This aspect was weighted 10 percent.
Doing the Job
Fast Company not only compiled a list of
the top jobs, but it also profiled 10 leaders
working in some of these exciting positions.
According to the company, “[These leaders] all
give the same advice about being successful at
work: Stay flexible. These jobs aren’t for the
rigid of mind, and you need to accept that they
might take you places you don't expect to go.
That's part of the fun -- and what makes these
jobs the best.”
