These three professions with many areas within the profession pays well:
- Medical field
- Many areas in technology (Computer Science, Web Development, Cyber security, Program/Project managers, and etc.)
That being said, l want to make it sincerely clear that medical work or profession is demanding, because you have to master both the art and science of its application to fully practice with pride and satisfaction.
However, there are various aspects of medical field, and you will need to read up the academic and clinical demands of each area to know if it is something that is really feasible for you. All things considered.
Don't go into medical program because your friend or relative just graduated and is doing well. Go for it because you feel the passion and the calling. You may be theoretically great but practically poor, don't worry, practice always makes perfect. You will definitely need some years in the field to calm your practice anxiety. Also remember, medicine is constantly evolving, so staying upto date in your practice is not a choice but a mandate! Relax, you will go with the flow...
The beautiful thing is that, even when the practical aspect continues to be a challenge, you have options such as ,specializing in an area to streamline your concentration, or taking up a teaching job to avoid too much practical demands
Remember, there is no perfect JOB and no perfect YOU, but being open to objective corrections, and hopefully being blessed with understanding co-workers makes a huge difference in your career life
All the best!
There are also some articles online about top-paying careers, which can help you start your search. As silly as it sounds, even subreddits dedicated to certain career paths can give you basic salary answers.
A good rule of thumb is that anything highly skilled or in-demand will probably have a higher salary attached. Keep in mind that this can includes the trades -- it's not just doctors and lawyers who make a lot of money. Also, with some careers, you'll get paid less earlier on but climb the pay ladder as you spend more and more time in that field.
Hope that helps!
