A list of the highest paying jobs in America. These are the most lucrative careers in the United States. If you're looking for a job, these careers are where you'll make the most money. Note that this list deals with *average* salaries, so you won't necessarily make what is shown on this list (although you could also earn more). Either way, it's interesting to see where the money is within our American work force. With unemployment always an issue for at least some of us in the country, it's useful to see what fields will pay the most bills. Hopefully this list will be helpful for anyone who's on the job hunt.
