Best-Paying Jobs Based on Your Area of Interest


Selena Dehne, JIST Publishing


It's no secret that some of the highest-paying, most rewarding careers are in health care. But what if you have little to no interest in that type of work? What if your interests pertain to other things, like government, food, architecture or information technology? Can you achieve high pay working in such fields?

Absolutely, says Laurence Shatkin. In his book "250 Best-Paying Jobs," Shatkin connects high-paying occupations to 16 career clusters, helping individuals identify which occupations are most likely to pay well in the fields and industries that interest them.
