Best Job In America Starts At $145,000 And Has 14,000 Openings

Glassdoor released its top job for 2022 based on earning potential, overall job satisfaction rating and number of job openings

A six-figure salary and the option to work from home? It sounds too good to be true.

Job openings are rising, while workers continue to quit. The number of vacant jobs hit 10.9 million in December, up from 10.6 million the previous month, the Labor Department said this week. The job openings rate was steady at 6.8%.

The COVID-19 pandemic has made people reassess the role of work in their lives. Workers are burned out and looking for better benefits, shorter commutes, higher salaries and — critically — a more accommodating work-life balance.

If they spend eight hours a day at work, they don’t want to be unhappy and stressed out. Some workers, some polls suggest, are even fed up with how their employer treated them during the pandemic, and told their boss they had enough.

“Wages aren’t keeping up with inflation, so the only way for most employees to either get a step up in salaries is either to find a new firm or have one foot out the door,” Scott Brown, chief economist at Raymond James, told Barron’s.

On Wednesday, the careers website Glassdoor released its annual 50 Best Jobs in America for 2022. With so many workers on the move as we enter Year 3 of the pandemic, it makes particularly timely reading.

Once again, tech workers came out on top. Enterprise architects were No. 1 on Glassdoor’s list. They have a median base salary of $144,997 a year, 14,021 job openings and a satisfaction rating of 4.1 out of 5.0, according to the report.

Throughout the past couple of months and during the pandemic, many companies have looked for more affordable real estate, a better quality of life, and fewer pandemic restrictions.

Arya Bina is the founder of Kobe Digital, and he says that is the main reason why he moved his tech company’s headquarters from Los Angeles to Las Vegas. He says the days of our city only being a destination for gambling, resorts, and entertainment are over.

“There is enough momentum here where it is not like you are going into a place with a completely blank slate,” Bina said. 

Bina says based on his predictions, Vegas will be the next big tech hub. His company is an advertising agency that helps tech industries grow. After being in Southern California for five years, he says he realized he needed a city with more opportunities.
