According to Forbes Magazine, 80 percent of women claim they will set out to find a different job in 2013, but where are the best places to look?

According to Forbes Magazine, 80 percent of women claim they will set out to find a different job in 2013, but where are the best places to look?

The survey takes a look at two questions:

What are the careers most desirable for women and which ones leave them feeling unsatisfied?

At number one for best jobs:, dentists, ophthalmologists, and physicians.

Sixty percent of women currently in these positions say they are very satisfied and the field is expected to grow, opening up more jobs.

On the flip side, healthcare shift workers like nurses are one of the most unhealthy jobs. Sleep problems, heart disease, and obesity are common in this profession.

Finally, women also like being the boss. CEO positions are highly desired, despite women making up only 25 percent of the field.

The reason? A high salary and lots of independence.

Something else women are interested in is job security.

Some women listed job security as more important than how much money they make and how many opportunities there are for advancement.
