To land any six-figure job, you'll need to bring your A-game, but these jobs take competition to a whole new level.
Today, job site Glassdoor released a list of the most in-demand jobs that pay over $100,000. These jobs attract lots of candidates for few open positions because they offer top-notch benefits and perks.
"Creative Manager" tops the list as the most competitive high-paying job. According to Glassdoor, the median base salary for a Creative Manager is $112,000. Unfortunately, there are only 1,243 open positions listed on the site — primarily in cities like New York, San Francisco and Boston.
Patent Attorneys and Software Engineering Managers are the highest paid jobs on the list. The median base salary for Software Engineering Managers and Patent Attorneys is $150,000. Patent Attorneys are currently being hired by the U.S. Department of Justice and the DOJ Antitrust Division, while Nike and Google are looking for more Software Engineering Managers.
