SmartAsset has recently released their 2017 list of the best-paying jobs in the US and the cities where you may want to consider relocating if pay is a priority. It’s fascinating to see how industries are dispersed through the country, and sometimes in unexpected places. For instance, did you know Cleveland Ohio is a hotbed of well-heeled physicists and aerospace engineers, paid $148,890 and $111,300 median annual income respectively? Mathematicians and petroleum engineers are raking-it-in out East at $138,660 and $138,240 respectively.
The cities that top the list include:
1. San Jose-Sunnyvale-Santa Clara, California
2. Cleveland-Elyria-Mentor, Ohio
3. San Francisco-San Mateo-Redwood City, California
