Have you ever wondered which jobs pay the most? Well the BLS took out some of this guess work and summarized the results into the graph below. While most of us won’t ever get into one of these high paying jobs, you can at least aim to get into occupations and jobs with the best prospects over the next decade.
It’s no surprise medical and management jobs make up the highest paying professions. After all only the smartest get into top medical schools and it takes years of study to get close to the level of experience needed to succeed in one of these jobs. But what is interesting is that jobs in marketing, energy and computers can actually be quite lucrative too. And because these are much easier and widespread professions to get into, it may be a good idea to try and pursue a career path related to one of these jobs.
