As we begin a fresh new calendar year, many professionals are looking at their earnings with increased scrutiny (though it's likely also because it's bonus and performance review season). But, no matter where you find yourself, the beginning of the year is as good a time as any to think about what you're making and what you might like to make in the future.
Last week, U.S. News & World Report released its list of the Best Jobs 2019. The list, which ranked jobs across different industries was comprised of a total of 100 of the best jobs in the United States. There's another list that caught our interest as well: Yes, it's the one that's all about the money.
The best-paying list is made up of jobs with an average salary of more than $100,000. And, in case you hadn't guessed already, the majority of them are in healthcare and tech. By now, it's old news that these industries tend to pay a lot more than other industries, so the results of this list may not be altogether surprising, but they still may provide some insight for those still choosing a career path or who are thinking about switching career trajectories altogether.
Ahead, the top five best-paying jobs in 2019, according to U.S. News & World Report.
