These 20 jobs earn you over $100,000 a year

USA TODAY - Trying to find a job that pays over $100,000? You'll need to start planning early, according to a new list of high-paying jobs compiled by job search engine Indeed.

Indeed's list of 20 jobs that pay over $100,000 is dominated by jobs in the health and tech industry. The top six highest paying jobs all fall in the medical field, with neurologists coming in as the highest paying jobs and psychiatrists following closely behind. 

The company pulled together the list by mining through Indeed's salary data on some of the jobs that pay an average of more than $100,000 per year. 

"High demand, high skill, tough-to-fill healthcare jobs feature heavily in the list, though it’s no easy matter to land one of these jobs: the average physician spending 14 years in training," Indeed notes. "Tech and business roles also pay well — though even if you don’t need to spend quite so long in school, you’ll likely still need a higher education."
