The Ten Highest Paying Jobs In America. just released their annual list of the highest paid jobs for 2016.  And by that, they mean “traditional” jobs, because the REAL good paying stuff like “Vine superstar” , “Real Housewife” and “on air radio talent” are nowhere to be found.

Here are the 10 highest paying jobs this year.  And I’ll say this, yeah, you should think about trying to get one.  But they all either require a LOT of extra education, or working your way up to upper-middle management.

About AJ

Your afternoon host AJ has been in Seattle for over 5 years and SO much has happened in his life since moving here. He and his wife of 7 years Nicole, had their first baby (Max...he is now 2) and they bought their first home here. When AJ isn't on the air, at a sporting event supporting one of our local teams (ESPECIALLY the Sounders and Seahawks) or hosting an event for one of the organizations that he works with including Making Strides Against Breast Cancer, March For Babies, Susan G Komen and Washington Trails Association, he is more than likely climbing a mountain! "I love everything this place has to offer, from world-class entertainment, to the incredible food to all of its natural beauty with so many amazing mountains and trails at our doorstep! I LOVE the Pacific Northwest and am proud to call it home and do what I love to do with an incredible group of people."
