Highest paying jobs can be by field or by location.
Some of the highest paying jobs are currently in the
mining industry in Western Australia & Queensland, specially for
welders & boilermakers.
In general, the highest paying are in the medical field, such as surgeons
& anesthesiologists. yet they vary from one country to another.
Obviously these change from time to time. For example, a few years ago jobs in the
Information Technology were the highest paying.
While many high paying jobs
require University degrees, such as surgeons &
anesthesiologists, others only require certification, training
& experience, such as welders & boilermakers in the
mining industry in Western Australia & Queensland. Another
benefit of these mining jobs is they offer free food & accommodation
while at work at the mine.
Even unskilled jobs in the
mining industry in Queensland & Western Australia usually pay
considerably higher than those in other areas & in other
industries. This is because many of these are in
remote areas and are fly in fly out jobs. The further away
from the big cities, the higher the pay.
Also, jobs in the oil and gas industry usually offer high paying.
Sharemarket trading, currency trading & foreign exchange
trading can be high paying, but most of these can be very risky.
While in one country the
highest paying jobs may be in banking, finance & accounting, in
another country that's growing the highest paying could be in
infrastructure, building & construction.
Other highest paying are
podiatrists, marketing managers, sales managers & lawyers.

jobs in the mining & oil industries are good examples of highest paying
jobs not requiring a University degree.
