This article seeks to outline the top 10 highest-paying Jobs in America. The list also gives the median base salary and the number of job openings in 2018.
Glassdoor.com, one of the leading job and recruiting websites in the world, recently published a report on the highest-paying jobs of 2018. The research analyzed 2018 salary reports submitted by employees, median annual base salary, the number of job openings available, and active job listings as of 7/19/2018. For consideration, a job title had to receive at least 100 salary reports from U.S.-based employees within the past year. C-suite level jobs were not included in this report.
The findings of the report indicate that a career in the healthcare or technology industries will earn you the heftiest paycheck. Most of the jobs on the list were in the tech and health industry. “The fact that employers are paying top dollar for many tech and healthcare jobs reinforces how demand for these valuable skill sets continues to outpace the supply of talent with these expertises,” said Glassdoor Economic Research Analyst Amanda Stansell.
