Summary: View the list of the highest paying jobs submitted to Glassdoor and find open positions on Gig to get you started towards a big paycheck.

The much anticipated yearly report has finally been released by Glassdoor. The 25 Highest Paying Jobs in America for 2016 only examines job titles with over 75 salary reports shared on their site in the past year so it cannot be considered fully accurate. It is solely based on what employees share on Glassdoor. However, it is still a very useful list when looking at some of the highest paying jobs. C Level jobs were excluded from the list.
