It’s a jobs rebound when your neighbor gets a high paying job. It’s a jobs recovery when you get one. We’ve all heard that the job market is doing better these days. The headline unemployment rate has been cut in half since 2009, while the nation’s quit rate is at it’s highest level in about eight years, indicating that workers are finding other jobs or are at least confident in their abilities to find more promising employment. However, if you can’t find a high-paying job, the so-called jobs recovery instantly becomes exclusive.
Where are the high-paying jobs? Glassdoor, the fastest-growing job site in the country, recently identified the 25 highest-paying jobs in 2017, all of which pay at least $90,000 (median base salary).
“With nearly half the list comprised of jobs in the tech and healthcare industries, this report reinforces that higher salaries are found in America’s fastest job-creating sectors, which require higher education and in-demand skill sets,” said Dr. Andrew Chamberlain, Glassdoor Chief Economist, in a press release.
