BOSTON — With its booming economy and growing middle class, Boston has seen its share of job hunters rise in recent years.
But the hunt for the next career in the Boston area isn’t for everyone.
It takes a special type of worker, a person with a knack for finding opportunities that can pay more than the average worker.
The Boston Herald reported Thursday that more than a third of jobs in the area are for people with degrees in a related field, from science to business.
They’re often in science or engineering and are needed to help develop new technologies or products, as well as to make things like robotics more secure and reliable.
The Herald said the jobs are mostly for young, tech-savvy workers who can work for as little as $13.50 an hour.
While some companies hire them to help manage the logistics of a big project, they’re more likely to come to Boston to fill positions in manufacturing or finance, the Herald said.
The jobs pay a base wage of $12 an hour or less.
Boston’s job market has been improving, with the unemployment rate falling to 5.9% last month, according to the U.S. Labor Department.
In January, it was 5.7%, down from a year earlier.
The rate for February was 3.4%, up from 3.1% in January.
Boston is not alone in the region.
New York, Washington and Philadelphia also saw job growth in January, according the Herald.
The Bureau of Labor Statistics said January job gains were at their lowest since 2010.
But some jobs were still being filled, particularly in the tech industry, where some companies are looking to attract more talent.
The Herald reported that many jobs are paid based on experience.
For example, a company looking for a data scientist with about five years experience can pay $20 an hour to a worker with six years of experience, according and the Bureau of Economic Analysis.
The worker must have a bachelor’s degree, a high school diploma or a GED.
The job must be held in a city where at least 50% of people are employed.
It must be an urban job, in a business, in an industry that has a market for the job, and in the past three months.
The job hunting field is a booming sector in the country.
Some economists say job hunters can get better than average wages and benefits.
But they can be hard to find, especially as the economy has been slowing and unemployment is rising.
Many are looking for the opportunity to make money as fast as possible and save up for retirement.
The unemployment rate for the Boston region is 5.8%, the lowest since 2009.
