Hunting for a new job with better pay? This list might help narrow your search!

Whether you’re looking in your current industry or seeking a brand new career path, it’s essential to research average salaries so you can determine if you’re being paid fairly or if you need to explore other opportunities that might make you more money. Even if you’re happy with your job, it’s important to know what your skills are worth.

(If your job is on this list but you’re not seeing the increase in your paycheck, it might be time to ask for a raise!)
