Software creators possess advanced technology skills that could make them attractive choices to many U.S. employers in 2013. According to CareerBuilder and Economic Modeling Specialists Intl., the software development sector is expected to produce the most jobs during the year, and employment experts predict the segment will increase its workforce by 7 percent.

"Where the U.S. will produce the most jobs in 2013 is likely to follow growth patterns of the last few years," said Matt Ferguson, CEO of CareerBuilder. "The competition for educated, specialized labor has intensified as market demands increase."

CareerBuilder ranked software development as its top job growth sector for 2013. Many software creators require bachelor's degrees and other education to apply principles and techniques of engineering, computer science and mathematics. These specialists may also be required to embed systems software and help companies build state-of-the-art applications and databases.
