High school graduations are upon us and 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, or you’re about to head off to college, what are some of the best careers to get into to ensure financial success, especially if you live in Florida? Where are the jobs in Florida? As you could expect, there’s lots of high paying opportunities in the medical field.

The crew at Zippia.com has put together a list of the top 20 highest paying jobs of 2022 in Florida. 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 Florida.”

All in all, the crew at Zippia looked at the salary data set for all 7,302 jobs in Florida to find those that get paid the most. These jobs certainly make a lot of money, but some of them are 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. If you’d like to compare our job market to a market in the midwest, such as Michigan, check out that list here.
