You can be a top earner in any industry, it just depends on your work ethic, self-discipline, and motivation.
Repeating Linda's comment, you can earn a lot in any industry if you work hard and are creative. However, if you are asking what type of careers offer the fastest and cheapest path to a higher income, the most normal path is through working for a corporation in either sales, HR, consulting, IT, trainer, marketer, accounting, UX design, etc. In these types of roles, it is usually easier to get a 60K+ salary with only an undergrad degree. But it may not be what you enjoy most! Kayla Myers Translate

There is nothing as a highest paid job. It all depend on YOU
I believe in only one motto in life :
FOLLOW YOUR PASSION AND MONEY WILL FOLLOW YOU!

The more passion you have for your work the more successful you would be.

Since I'm in field of business - I can give you some insight into a couple fields (accounting and investment banking):

Accounting: This will allow you to have a steady career with a level of job stability. Although it's a grind in the earlier years with regards to salary (you won't be paid the big bucks) but the skills you gain over the years and progression will allow you to take on middle-management (controllership positions) or even eventually in the C-suite office (i.e. CFO). If you look at the top F500 companies, there is publicly disclosed information about what CFOs make (millions depending on the compensation make-up - salary, bonus, stock units, options etc.). You can also go to the route of public accounting where you are a 'public accountant / auditor' servicing audit services for these F500 companies. Progression is normally the following:

Associate: 1-2 years
Senior Associate: 3 - 5 years
Manager/Senior Manager: 5- 9 years
Director: 9+ years
Partner: 12 + years

By the time that you're a manager you should be raking in at least 6 figures - and if you're ambitious enough to go through the partner route with an partnership equity stake in the firm practice, you could be raking in close to 7 figures or over 7 figures depending on your performance (i.e. selling services to existing or new clients). If you think about the career progression relative to that of what everybody is mentioning (medical practice field), you honestly come out on top granted the amount of student loan debt that these individuals have to put themselves through and an immense amount of schooling (8+ years)

Investment Banking: This is also a popular route for people that enjoy the capital markets. I have a sample of salary ranges for each level (wallstreetoasis)

Analyst - 1st Year: $70,000 - $150,000
Analyst - 3rd Year: $120,000 - $350,000
Associate - 1st Year: $150,000 - $350,000
Associate - 3rd Year: $250,000 - $500,000
Vice President: $350,000 - $1,500,000
Managing Director/Partner: $500,000 - $20,000,000+

Hi Kakwi,

This is a pretty open-ended question and depends upon your definition of highest paid and job. Like most of the folks here have already mentioned, I would reiterate that there is no such highest paid job. With your passion, ethics and motivation for the job you are in, you could reach any heights. Also pay could be in the form of cash in hand or cash + benefits.
Thanks Dinesh for the great answer. I appreciate! Kakwi K. Translate

There are many options for jobs that have a high paying salary:
Doctors
Lawyers
Software Engineering
Dentist
Physicians Assistant
etc.,

It all depends on the field that is picked as well. For example an Anesthesiologist makes more than a Radiologist. Also, the further you go into your academic career the more knowledgeable you will be and be able to enhance your skills and make even more money.

Skill is a major factor in these fields, however, hard work and determination can definitely get you there if you work hard enough

You will be able to get hundreds of articles online to show you which profession will give you highest pay.
However, I would recommend you personally to get to know what your skill sets are or what thing are you interested in doing and at the same time good at.
Once you have decided on it, make sure to hone your skills and look for job that requires those skills.
There is no shortcut to get a job which will pay you high packages directly until you are really an expert.
So my suggestion is to work on your strengths and grow up the ladder to reach the highest pay in your job.
Thanks for the great answer. I appreciate! Kakwi K. Translate

Kakwi,

I have a feeling this answer is also highly dependent upon what industries are more prevalent in Cameroon, or wherever you choose to live and work, if somewhere else. As others have already mentioned, you can be a high earner in many fields. If you want to make lots of money fast, you will often find yourself in a career which is driving your life, instead of a life being supported by your career.

I hope that helps,
Jon
Thanks a lot Jon Kakwi K. Translate

Sales is the highest paid job. Of course that varies depending on the field you're in, but if you can sale, there's almost no cap to how much money you can make. First thing you need to learn is how to sell yourself. Learn how to make people believe in who you are and what you stand for.

The answer depends on who it makes you feel. If you are stressed out in your high dollar making role yet you are not happy because of work related stress then the income is not worth it. You should look for an industry that makes you happy in the work you do and not be stressed out. Stress can lead to health issues later in life so you should find something that is rewarding for you.

The highest paying job is what you did to earn this pay such as you can chose a profession earn the profession average or top earning and there you have the highest paying job. Not everyone is can earn the high paying job if they don't work for it. Plus you can be an entrepreneur and earn the high pay but what are you doing to be a entrepreneur, do you have something were you can make money or get you the pay. A lot of people go through college to earn a degree so they can work for company or a profession they are passionate about and they see their earning there is their highest pay. Some people us the business methods which is like playing in the stock market and earn their high pay from there. Doctor, Lawyer, Pharmacist, Nurse, and more, all have their own highest pay. So you identify what you want and see what is the highest pay you can get.
