Good Afternoon Ron: I agree with John. Interests,skills, knowledge, and abilities are crucial to getting and keeping a job. Also crucial to success are communication and punctuality. Even a doctor will loose clients if he/she constantly overbooks and arrives late. That said, and to answer your question directly, doctors, professional athletes, A-list actors and singers, corporate lawyers and partners, and software programmers tend to bring home the most pay just based off of their homes, cars, and lifestyle and demand for their work and strong work ethic (like Labron James versus other less familiar pro ball players). So a lot goes into making the most especially being in demand so that if you're the best computer programmer or software developer others will talk about and recommend you and want you to work for them. Check out onet.org and type in any careers you were thinking about and read the description, skills, knowledge, and responsibilities of the job. Then, ask yourself if you're interested in learning more about that topic enough to study it for 8 years. I hope this helps
Best of luck.
Lashay recommends the following next steps:
- Visit onet.org website, type in jobs you're considering and read the details including pay
- While reading, have paper and pencil
- Write and rank most interesting and even least interesting so you know what to stay away from
