The pandemic has shifted a lot of industries and made many of us reconsider what we do for a living. What jobs will always be necessary no matter the climate? What jobs continue to be fulfilling throughout a long career? What jobs will earn us enough money to be happy in this life?

A website called GoBankingRates.com, released an article called  "The Salary You Need to Afford Rent in Every State". According to this article (which was released in November of last year) a resident of the Granite State needs to make approximately $69,920 per year in order to afford a single-family residence. This is without having your monthly rent consume more than 30% of your total income.

This got me thinking about the highest paying professions here in New Hampshire. We all know that anything in the medical field pays very well but it also requires a whole lot of schooling before you can actually start practicing and earning money! The same goes for dentistry! At this stage in my life, if I were going to make a career change I would look for the highest paying jobs that require the least amount of schooling. Because time is money, my friend! And also, who wants to spend their first decade of working paying off mountains of student loans?

I decided to go directly to the source, The NH Bureau of Labor Statistics, to find out which jobs pay the best here in New Hampshire. I also consulted an article from the website Zippia to supplement my research.
