The 15 best cities in the US to find jobs that pay $100,000 or more


Many people dream of having a job that pays six-figures one day. But the chance of that happening partly depends on the city you live in.

Ladders, a career site for six-figure jobs, recently revealed the 15 best cities with the most jobs that pay $100,000 or more based on the job listings on their website.

But having a high-paying job also depends on what industry you work in. It may come as no surprise that in every city on Ladders' list, the technology industry had the largest percentage of $100,000 jobs. After all, technology pays just as well, if not better, than the standard high-paying professions of a doctor or lawyer when considering the student loan debt the latter two acquire.

From Chicago to San Francisco, take a look below for the top cities for job openings with a six-figure salary, current as of June 6.
