When you find a job market that is growing quick, if you're in the market for a job, then that's the train you want to jump on. Maine has those kinds of jobs.

The job market is changing fast. Jobs that your mom and dad worked at years ago are either thinning down, have been out-sourced or have just flat gone away.

Tech jobs, internet marketing, and internet sales seem to be a great way of making money if you know what you're doing. Here are some of the jobs that are growing at a very fast pace in the Pine Tree State, according to Zippa.com.

    Whether it's a sports injury or an injury on the job, physical therapists are in high demand today. Especially with an aging population. The older we get, those old pains want to return and these folks know how to get you back on track.  They make around $60,000 a year.

    Software Developers

    No surprise here. With the internet not going away and more and more people getting on board with internet marketing and websites, it's no wonder that this is a job that is increasing in popularity. $75,000 a year is not too shabby for working in your mom's basement in your underwear every day. :)

    Taxi/ Uber Drivers

    More states are passing laws that allow for Uber Drivers to take you where you want to go. It's pretty popular overseas, where people are visiting and traveling and want to save some money too. Depending on where you live, you can make a nice living. Some make around $40,000 a year to haul folks around from place to place.
