The highest-paying jobs on the planet

Elizabeth Bromstein|

Looking for the best-paid jobs in the world? Look no further.

The Brighton School of Business Management has released a handy infographic listing those jobs. Now you can choose from among the top paying professions on the planet and get rich. (Actually, it seems that becoming a millionaire has more to do with saving than earning. But earning is a good start, right?)

So, what are these super-duper jobs?

The top five – in descending order of earnings – are medical, directors and CEOs (obviously), banking, legal, and software engineering.

This is pretty close to the list of highest-paying Canadian jobs.

The highest-paying dangerous job is coal mining.

The graphic also lists salaries by country. So, we learn that the average income in Australia is 48,000 pounds – or CA$88,000 – and the average German income is 50,000 pounds – CA$91,000. That seems awfully high, considering that the average salary in Canada $928 per week – or just about $48,250 a year. Maybe it’s time to move.

Check out the infographic below from our friends at the Brighton School of Business
and Management

    I think a look at taxes; income, sales and VAT would give a much better picture of what people take home, and how much of their after tax income is double taxed through sales and VAT taxes. Also when looking at income tax rates one should also look at what can be deducted from taxable income. Purchasing power is another very important variable in the equation. Sorry Elizabeth, but the numbers are overly simplistic to make any real sense of them, and certainly only the begining of the equation when comparing salaries
    and trying to draw conclusions or make any type of decision.
