Lawyers and detectives may be the roles most commonly depicted on TV, but the jobs that get high ratings in real life are often lesser known. According to salary research from Robert Half, demand for positions such as mobile application developers, data warehouse analysts and user experience (UX) designers is expected to grow in the coming year as companies look to invest in their information technology (IT) infrastructure and digital presence.

"Professionals with the best prospects have finely tuned abilities that enable their companies to take advantage of new technology and the increasing amount of information available to them."
