High-paying jobs are professions with an annual income that exceeds $75,000 to 100,000. Every year, new lists are released by various publications and organizations. Many of them are listed in subcategories as well, including "high-paying in demand jobs." The U.S. Bureau of Labor and Statistics also releases high-paying jobs lists. The 2010 high-paying jobs list, as released from the U.S. Bureau of Labor and Statistics, included eight medical jobs, making up 40 percent of the list. This included the highest paying job, oral and maxillofacial surgeons, who earned over $166,000.[1]

High-Paying In-Demand Jobs

The jobs and career community Glassdoor gathered data from millions of job listings that remained open to construct a list of high-paying, in-demand jobs. The highest was a psychiatrist, with a pay of $169,479. Physicians were listed next at $152,768, with dentists in the third spot earning $126,000. Remaining jobs on this list included a lead software engineer, pharmacist, engineering manager, tax manager, and sales director.[2]

High-Paying Flexible Jobs

Taking data for more than 35 million profiles, a list of the top 10 high-paying, flexible jobs was created. A flexible job is one that allows an employee to set his or her work schedule by having varying hours or working from home, also called telecommuting. The highest paying flexible job is that of a senior IT project manager, earning over $99,700, an actuary with $94,600, and an attorney or lawyer earning $92,400. Other flexible high-paying jobs included a technical sales engineer and an aerospace engineer.[3]

High-Paying Jobs Without a Bachelor's Degree

The Bureau of Labor Statistics cites 60 percent of the workforce as not having a bachelor's degree. Some of these individuals are still able to secure high-paying jobs. For example, air traffic controllers, who are not required to possess a college degree, earn an average of $108,000. General and operations managers earn an annual income of $94,000. Construction managers earn over $83,000 a year. Other high-paying jobs that do not require a college degree include radiation therapists, nuclear power reactor operators, elevator repairers and installers, criminal investigators and detectives, dental hygienists, registered nurses, fashion designers, and gas plant operators.[4]
