I am doing my last year of my B.S. in Chemistry. I don't want to do a Masters in Chemistry. Could you please suggest other good courses I could take to get me a good job that is in high demand?

I would recommend that you first need to figure out what career you want to pursue before you start taking more courses. You can find excellent Online Master's Degree Programs here. I did some research on what jobs have been in high demand and found a list of the top 15 jobs listings out of over five million American jobs listed from August 2011 - January 2012. Below is the list:

1. Physical Therapists

2. Occupational Therapists

3. Assistant Managers

4. Registered Nurses - Licensed RNs

5. Crew Positions - Casual Dining and Fast Food

6. Salespeople

7. Shift Supervisors - Food and Other Industries

8. Cashiers/Sales Clerks

9. Customer Service Jobs

10. Pharmacy Technicians

11. Merchandisers

12. Event Specialists

13. General Managers

14. Photo Lab Supervisors

15. Project Managers - IT

I also found a list of top 15 jobs that federal projections have made will have the most job openings from now until 2016. As you consider what career to pursue you might also want to take this list into consideration:

1. Registered Nurses (RNs)

2. Retail Salespersons

3. Customer Service Representatives

4. All Food Preparation & Service

5. Office Clerks

6. Personal & Home Care Aides

7. Home Health Aides (HHAs)

8. Postsecondary Teachers

9. Janitors and Cleaners, except Housekeepers

10. Nursing Aides & Orderlies

11. Bookkeeping, Accounting, And Auditing Clerks

12. Wait staff

13. Child Care Workers

14. Executive Secretaries & Administrative Assistants

15. Computer Software Applications Engineers
