Newsflash: jobs that require a wide array of skills pay better than jobs that don’t. That’s one revelation I had while reading the list of America’s highest-paying jobs. The other? I am so, so poor.

Glasdoor, finest purveyor of employer reviews, released the list which “reinforces that high pay continues to be tied to in-demand skills, higher education and working in jobs that are protected from competition or automation,” according to Dr. Andrew Chamberlain, Glassdoor’s chief economist.  “This is why we see several jobs within the technology and health-care industries.”

As you’d probably guess, physicians topped the list, followed by lawyers. But other job titles were less predictable, like pharmacist and actuary.

The report comes a few months after the World Economic Forum released a study predicting millions of jobs lost to technolocatv developments by 2020. “[C]urrent trends could lead to a net employment impact of more than 5.1 million jobs lost to disruptive labour market changes over the period 2015-2020, with a total loss of 7.1 million jobs—two thirds of which are concentrated in the Office and Administrative job family—and a total gain of 2 million jobs, in several smaller job families,” the report read.

Salary is only one ingredient in the fruit bowl that is job satisfaction, but it ranks high for many.  A recent Glassdoor survey revealed that as many as 7 in 10 (68%) consider salary to be the most important factor when considering whether or not to accept a new job. 

In other words, salary continues to be incredibly important to folks, even though other factors should also be considered, including whether you like the damn job. Behold the full list below:
