14 in-demand jobs that pay over $100,000 and are hiring now

Twenty20

In 2018, workers quit their jobs at the highest rate in nearly two decades, with salary being one of their key motivating factors.

According to experts, workers who leave their old job for a new one see an average 15 percent increase in compensation. That's why Glassdoor Chief Economist Andrew Chamberlain tells CNBC Make It quitting "is a smart move, as there's a clear advantage to increasing your earning potential by switching jobs."

LinkedIn created this list of the top jobs where you can make more money, looking at some of the most common roles listed on its platform and ranked each position based on salary, career advancement, number of job openings in the U.S., year-over-year job growth and widespread regional availability. The jobs on this list had the highest combined scores when measuring all five of these areas.

Take a look below to see which 14 positions promise career growth and a six-figure salary, according to LinkedIn:
