As long as you’re going to work, you might as well seek a high-paying job. But can you be sure your most lucrative job option will still be around to pay you that big salary five or 10 years from now?
Which jobs are more likely to have high levels of job security? PayScale compiled this list of eight high-paying jobs with staying power. Each requires no more than a bachelor’s degree and pays $55,000 a year or more. Even better, each job is projected to grow by 29 percent or more between 2010 and 2020, much faster than the average occupation, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics.—By Alida Moore, PayScale.com
