You'll probably earn the most in your career in your 40s. But that doesn't mean you can't rake in six figures early on.

LinkedIn's 2017 State of Salary Report foregrounds high-paying entry- and mid-level jobs that require only one-to-three years of experience. Some of these more junior roles even offer six-figure salaries.

"The most lucrative entry and mid-level jobs are in finance, but roles in sales, marketing, and engineering also take spots on the list," the site reports.

Read on to see the 10 highest-paying jobs that you can land with as little as one year of experience. We also listed the median salary, which includes bonus and commission if applicable, and the median cash bonus, if applicable. All data comes from LinkedIn.

If the median salary was the same for more than one job, the position with the higher annual bonus ranked higher on the list, LinkedIn notes.
