Unless, you've already found your dream job, there's a strong chance that at some point -- even multiple points -- in your long working life, you'll have to choose between doing something you love for low pay or making a decent amount of cash doing something meaningless. But it turns out that if you're looking to bring home a six-figure salary some day, you don't have to be a doctor, lawyer, or tech executive, according to a new list of 11 high-paying jobs from Glassdoor.
As the careers site explains, the list is meant to highlight jobs you might not associate with making the big bucks -- Special Agent, Geophysicist, and Physician Assistant, to name a few. Of course, with some of these roles, a significant part of the total compensation comes from things like bonuses, tips, and commissions, instead of just salary. For example, the median base salary for a Regional Sales Executive is $65,000, but after factoring in other forms of compensation, the median total pay is $103,500, according to Glassdoor. You'll just have to live with being called a Regional Sales Executive.
