The Nation’s Highest Paying Jobs

Posted By Administration, Tuesday, January 7, 2020

It will not be much of a surprise to you to note that none of the nation’s 100 highest paying jobs are in the insurance industry. Some of you are marketing managers and financial managers — however — and you do make pretty good money and rank 19th and 20th.

Supposedly.

The big money is found in health care, computer system design and the scientific industry. Businesses like telecommunications where wires are involved, the postal service and those offering postal services and the production of textiles are seeing huge income losses — and in many cases — job losses.

Technology seems to be the place to be and pay demands are quite high. And when it comes to high pay, a higher education is helpful. The Georgetown University Center on Education and the Workforce says in 2020 some 35% of the highest paying jobs will require a bachelor’s degree or better.

This information comes from the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS). These are the lines of work found most on the top 100 list:

  Engineers

  Educators

  Medical professions

  Managers
