The 9 Highest-Paying Jobs for Millennials
To many people, money isn't everything.
But that's not how millennials see it -- at least when it comes to their career.
According to U.S. News & World Report's latest ranking of the highest-paying jobs for millennials, more than 1,000 surveyed Americans aged 20 to 34 said salary is the most important factor in making career decisions, followed by work-life balance and stress level.
U.S. News used this information -- as well as future job prospects, unemployment rates and upward mobility -- to identify the best jobs for millennial workers right now. Only jobs requiring a bachelor's degree or less were included in the ranking.
Since millennials value salary above all else, U.S. News broke out the list to rank the best jobs with the highest pay. They included both average and median salaries in their ranking. Average salaries typically skew higher, due to higher incomes earned by top employees or those at better-paying companies, whereas the median salary is representative of what the majority of people in that position make.
Below, check out the nine highest-paying jobs for millennials right now. All job descriptions come from the Occupational Information Network (O*NET), a U.S. Department of Labor database that compiles detailed information on hundreds of jobs.
