What professions have the highest salary on average that is not in the medical field?

I'm an incoming freshman and I am beginning to attempt to figure out what I want my career path to be. Of course, while doing research, one of the biggest factors is money. However I seemed to come across a common theme of medicine being the field which pays the most, but I am definitely not interested in the medical field at this point in time. Any suggestions?

T.J.’s Answer

Hello Angie!

In the US, usually STEM or Business are considered the main fields that make higher amounts of money. The M in STEM can stand for Math or Medicine (depending on who you ask) but there's plenty of professions to choose from besides medicine!

According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS), Indeed, and Forbes, the top fields (in demand and with high-pay options) besides that are:

➔ Information Technology: Jobs that fall under IT that are popular are Cybersecurity, Network engineering, and Salesforce consultants.
➔ Supply Chain Management: An area of business. Jobs that are common are agents, logistics analysts, or managers who manage delivery methods for various materials and products.
➔ Financial Management: Jobs that can fall under this are accounting and finance managers
➔ Data and Statistics: Job titles that are common are actuaries, data analysts, data scientists, and statisticians.
➔ Airline pilots, copilots, and flight engineers: Piloting is a common job in the air industry, but you can also work behind the scenes on managing or building technology.
➔ Computer science: An area that falls under IT. a job that's common for people in the field is software engineer.
Yet, there's way more you can do with CS, such as entering machine learning, AI, digital forensics, or data science!
