Six-Figure Jobs in Demand

All six-figure jobs were NOT created equal.

Not only do some require more education and experience than others, some are just more in demand than others. So, if you want to increase your chances of landing a six-figure job, it helps to know which ones have the most positions available.

Finance-related jobs accounted for more than half of the top 25 jobs with the most openings that paid over $100,000, according to research by Monster.com.That’s everything from a finance manager to an internal audit supervisor and an accounting director.

There’s still a lot of competition for those jobs, though: Indeed.comestimates that for every online job listing in financial services and banking, 30 people click on it. For accounting jobs, that number rises to 34. Health care and information technology had the least clicks per post, while media and construction had the most.

So, where are the best opportunities? Here are eight of the top six-figure jobs that have the most openings – and who’s hiring.
