Post by: bidita on February 06, 2011, 07:21:49 AM
Highest paying jobs in USA - top ten

10 months ago one of the biggest online employment website in the United States with more than 23 million visitors every month announced the list of highest paying jobs and professions. This list presents only average salaries. I don't have any doubts that the best representatives of these professions earn much more, however I wanted to point out average numbers. The highest salaries list would be slighly different. The representatives of at least three professions earn more than 100 000 dollars per year. The first place of this list is taken by the most honoured and valuable professionals - doctors. The number is impressive - doctors working in America earn ten times more than doctors working in Lithuania, i.e - 147 405 dollars. Most probably the six figure number forced not one or two lithuanian doctors, who gave the oath of Hippocrates, to change their location and move to US. So, let's start from number 10.

10. Chief Programmers
If there is a programming team, then responsibility for different important projects, their design and realization lies upon one man. That man is called chief programmer. He is the one who connects all the dots and lines and knows the inside details of some particular project. He distributes tasks and supervises a group of programmers. Though chief programmer is at the bottom of top paying jobs list, his average salary is around 80 000 dollars. In 2006 there were 435 000 workers registered.

As we can see the highest paying jobs are in the field of healthcare. It is good news for those planning to be a doctor. It is a long way to become a specialist (up to 6-8 years), but it definitely pays off. Almost all the best doctors work in private clinics and hospitals.
