Do You Work with the Top 9 Most Popular Six-Figure Jobs?

by | Sep 16, 2013 | Recruiter Training, Top Echelon Blog

When it comes to earning handsome placement fees, recruiters know they need to place candidates in a managerial position that’s difficult to fill and that commands a hefty starting salary.

What’s the definition of a “hefty starting salary”?  I think everyone would agree that over $100,000 per year is a good place to start.

With that in mind, 24/7 Wall Street recently reviewed occupations that boast a median annual salary of more than $100,000 and that employ the most people.  Before we run down the list, keep in mind that NOT all of the occupations on this list are growing, which means there might be a smaller pool of candidates available to fill the same (or greater ) number of open positions.

Which, of course, means one thing: more placement opportunities!

So, without further adieu, below is a list of the nine most popular six-figure jobs in the United States (along with their median annual salary):

9. Family and General Practitioners ($172,020)

8. Marketing Managers ($119,480)

7. Architectural and Engineering Managers ($124,870)

6. Chief Executives (168,140)

5. Pharmacists ($116,670)

4. Computer and Information Systems Managers ($120,950)

3. Sales Managers ($105,260)

2. Financial Managers ($109,740)

1. Lawyers ($113,530)
