Imagine this scenario. You’re sitting around with a bunch of friends, swapping stories after a long day of work. Suddenly one friend sighs. “You know, I just make too much money at my job.”
Haven’t heard that recently? We haven’t either. But maybe that’s because we don’t have friends working in what U.S. News & World Report is calling ”The 10 Most Overpaid Jobs.”
To come up with their list, the news organization analyzed data from PayScale to find jobs with high pay and, allegedly, relatively easy work.
As the site concludes: “This is admittedly an inexact science with subjective criteria. ‘Overpaid’ means different things to different people, and many workers represented on our list have perfectly legitimate jobs requiring skill, talent and training.”
Still, it can be fun to gawk every now and then, right? So without further ado, here are the 10 most overpaid jobs, according to the findings:
|Job||Median Mid-Career Salary|
|Consulting software engineer||$123,000|
|Marketing research director||$122,000|
|Wholesaler, financial services||$109,000|
|Data scientist, IT||$133,000|
