Demanding Careers

If you’re looking for a job as a dentist, sales director or tax manager and you’re hoping to rake in six figures, you’re in luck on both fronts. Not only are employers trying to fill hundreds (or thousands) of these types of jobs right now; but they’re also paying over $100, 000 a year in most cases.

Glassdoor, a jobs and career community, has combed its millions of open job listings to help job seekers pinpoint some of the highest-paying jobs that employers need to fill most. This list is based on job titles with at least 500 open job listings and at least 50 salary reports shared by employees.

“Whether you are starting a career or looking to make a career change, this list sheds light on the jobs that may be most fruitful in terms of compensation, ” says Samantha Zupan, a Glassdoor spokesperson.

“This also highlights that positions in healthcare and tech continue to be in demand. In addition, given the upcoming tax season, it’s not too surprising to see tax manager jobs rise in demand as we get closer to the U.S. tax due date, ” she says.

The highest-paying in-demand job on the list: Psychiatrist. According to employee salary reviews, these professionals make about $169, 479, on average. Bureau of Labor Statistics data shows that the top 10% earning psychiatrists make more than $187, 199 a year, on average.

“If the salaries on the list surprise anyone, it offers an important reminder to know your earning potential which can vary by job location, company and years of experience required, ” Zupan adds. “If you’re evaluating a career, it’s critical to do your homework first to understand what is fair pay.”
