BOOST O2 > The 15 Highest Paying Jobs In America

By Kathy Kristof, BNET

What jobs pay the most?

If you’re well established in a career, the news is merely voyeuristic — a matter of looking over your colleagues shoulders to see what they might earn. But if you’re young and seeking work — or older and retooling — the annual occupational wage data might suggest where to focus your energy.
Of course, the jobs that pay the most are also the hardest to get. The 10 largest occupations account for more than 20% of the nation’s 127 million jobs, according to the BLS. But only one of the 10 largest occupations paid more than the national average wage of $44,410. That one position: Registered nurse, which pays an average wage of $67,720.


It’s that time of year when the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics crunches through reams of data on 800 different jobs to tell us how much Americans earn and which jobs pay the most and least.

It’s far easier to get a job as a waiter or fast-food worker, which account for nearly 5 million positions, but pay less than $10 an hour and make up some of the America’s worst paid positions.
Earning a really lucrative income is likely to require lots of schooling. An analysis of the government data shows that the top-paid professions in America are dominated by positions that require a medical degree — although there are 27 jobs that don’t require a medical degree. What jobs pay the most — and how much is that exactly?
