BCS of Overland Park Kansas has been researching the top jobs for this year. According to BCS, there are two classifications of well-paying jobs; executive level jobs and the overall job market.
According to BCS, for executives and professionals the technical sector offers great opportunities for a six-figure income; especially in management, however software developers, with a median salary nearing $90,000, have the best chance at a six-figure income. Technical sales and sales engineer jobs have also historically been high paying jobs.
As for other specific job titles across the board, the best opportunities are in finance (CFO); Senior-level Human resource managers; Vice President (or Director) of Business Development; senior level internet Marketing Managers; and Vice President of Operations are the job titles that top the list.
BCS also noted that well-paying jobs not in the six-figure realm are highly sought and growing. They are: Occupational Therapist, Computer Programmer, Physical Therapist, Computer Systems Analyst, Web Developer, Database Administrator, Medical Assistant, Pharmacist, Software Developer, and Registered Nurse. According to the Overland Park firm, some of these jobs can reach six-figures, but it is not common and not well reflected in their median incomes.
“The job market is still good for some” according to Overland Park’s BCS, “but today’s market requires a different strategy for finding suitable employment. While many jobs depend on specific skills and training, the executive level job seeker has to demonstrate transferrable skills, and a fit for the organization. At the senior level, job retraining is probably not the answer for most.”
With the current job market in a slow recovery, many professionals and executives are reaching out to those who can provide assistance with less traditional job search strategies. Among those strategies is the creation of new networks, web portfolios (executive and professional online, dynamic visual resumes) and the use of technologies that provide real-time information on companies in hiring mode, and lead generation.
