Big bucks

If you’re not quite doctor or lawyer material, but want to make a killing, then you could do a lot worse than get a tech job. Which kind? That’s what online jobs and recruiting marketplace Glassdoor reveals in a new survey of the highest paying jobs in America. We’ve filtered out the non-tech jobs like physician ($180,000 median base salary) and lawyer ($144,500 median base salary), which are Nos. 1 and 2, and go from there (though really, what isn’t a tech job these days?) Anyway, you can get complete results of the Glassdoor highest paying jobs survey here. Results are based on salary reports shared by employees with these jobs on Glassdoor over the past year.
