The current job market is a hot topic, as opportunities are flourishing in a variety of industries. So, if you’re looking for a new job, what are some of the best careers to get into to ensure financial success, especially if you live in Michigan?

The crew at Zippia.com has put together a list of the top highest paying jobs of 2022 in Michigan. Plenty of research went into the study to ensure the salary data was as accurate as possible. “To create our salary estimates, Zippia starts with data published in publicly available sources such as the most recently released data on March 29, 2021 from the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS), Foreign Labor Certification Data Center (FLC), Office of Personnel Management (OPM) and others,” they state in the study.

“The data science team then supplements that data by continuously scanning through millions of job postings each day to find published salaries,” they added. “We match these published salaries to the companies, locations, and job titles in other datasets. Finally, the data science team calculates a weighted average of these inputs to produce an estimated salary for the particular job title in Michigan.”

All in all, the crew at Zippia looked at the salary data set for all 4,209 jobs in Michigan to find those that get paid the most. These jobs certainly make a lot of money, but they’re not exactly the jobs I expected to see on the list. Read on for the full list, as well as the average salary for each job. For example, I thought a physician would be right at the top, and it’s on the list but down a ways.
