What is the Highest Paying Jobs in IL? Not Including Crooked Politicians.
When you look at the wide variety of jobs throughout the state, who do you think makes the most? Let me add "legally" to the question I asked....so politicians are excluded from this list. No senate seats for sale on this list.
From Zippia here comes a list that lets us know who is making the most in the state of Illinois. What occupation in the Land of Lincoln will get you the most bread....Check this out this list from number one to number ten:
Surgeons, Except Ophthalmologists
Obstetricians and Gynecologists
Physicians, All Other; and Ophthalmologists, Except Pediatric
Family Medicine Physicians
General Internal Medicine Physicians
Airline Pilots, Copilots, and Flight Engineers
I don't see anything about radio on there...interesting. If you look at a specific occupations my state, check this out. Air traffic controllers in Illinois, get paid! Just barely making the top ten list in Illinois is the dreaded dentist, coming in at #11.
If you are in that specific field, you are making dough in Illinois:
1: Illinois (average annual wage: $136,700)
2: Georgia (average annual wage: $134,550)
3: Texas (average annual wage: $132,700)
4: California (average annual wage: $132,510)
5: Minnesota (average annual wage: $132,080)
This list is pretty interesting, it looks at the top fifty jobs across the country and which state pays the most.
Illinois also shows up on this list paying well for carpenters, electricians, and food scientists. Again, nothing for radio people, dang it.
