10 Hot Jobs that pay over 50k a year, starting!
You may be the new kid on the job block, but that doesn't mean your salary has to start low on the totem pole. The PayScale.com Salary Survey identified an array of exciting jobs that pay a total compensation close to or above an impressive $50,000 per year right from the start.

Here is a list of 10 hot professions that show you the money.

1. Investment Banking Analyst. If you are good with numbers and solving real-world problems, this job pays handsomely in the early years and has strong long-term earning potential.
Typical Starting Salary: $59,084

2. Business Analyst, Computer Software. Data mining is a new and hot field with strong career potential. Normally used by financial institutions such as banks, data miners sort through vast amounts of information that help companies make the best use of the information in their data warehouses. Master's degrees in computer science, physics, or statistics are usually required.
Typical Starting Salary: $50,727

3. Forensic Computer Analyst. Computer forensics is the analysis of information contained within and created with computer systems and computing devices. These analysts investigate causes of computer meltdowns, who has misused a computer system, or how someone committed a crime. These professionals are quite popular in white-collar criminal investigations.
Typical Starting Salary: $51,852

4. Junior Associate Attorney. The financial scales of justice certainly tip toward the side of the average attorney. And just after five years experience the average salary jumps to $89,210. Depending on the field of specialty, the long-term earning potential is almost limitless. Big-shot lawyers like former Sen. John Edwards (malpractice) and celebrity criminal defense attorney Mark Gerago have cleaned up millions in their careers.
Typical Starting Salary: $52,678

5. Physical Therapist. If anatomy is your thing, physical therapy may be your path to greener pastures. PTs can even specialize in areas such as hand or back therapy to boost their marketability -- and salary potential.
Typical Starting Salary: $52,573

6. Nurse Practitioner (ARNP). Nursing opportunities never seem to go out of style, and neither does demand in this area. If a doctor cannot squeeze you in for an appointment, chances are there is a nurse practitioner standing by in his place. While nurse practitioners don't command the big bucks that physicians do, their services certainly don't come cheap.
Typical Starting Salary: $67,166

7. Electrical Engineer. It is easy to do the math on how marketable engineers are. Companies dig deep to lure young electrical engineers and other subspecialties across the board. Electrical engineers focus on using electricity to transmit energy. Payscale.com shows that experienced electrical engineers earn an average of $81,078.
Typical Starting Salary: $54,401

8. Software Engineer. Software engineers design, write, and test computer programs. Computer networking and information technology are hot fields that are here to stay.
Typical Starting Salary: $56,795

9. Pharmaceutical Sales Representative. You don't have to be a physician or even science major to make big bucks in medicine. Just about anyone with a college degree and a killer personality can be trained in pharmaceutical sales. These professionals make sales calls to doctors' offices hoping to convince the doctors to prescribe the latest drugs made by the pharmaceutical company they represent. Seasoned pros can make six-figure salaries in this field.
Typical Starting Salary: $51,104

10. Veterinarian. Do you love animals? Veterinarians can combine a passion for their warm, furry friends with great earning power. With growing animal research and interest in pet care, veterinarian medicine is bound to be a popular profession for years to come.
Typical Starting Salary: $59,084

Sweet, I've been pushing my boyfriend to finish getting his Electrical Engineering degree from ITT Tech (He's about 1 1/2 way through). He freaking HATES the school, but companies will accept the degree, so as long as he has that piece of paper in his hand...

I've been with my company for going on 13 years, and all I make is 13.00/hour. Which was good a few years back, but now...it's not paying all the bills, food AND gas.

What makes it worse is the job market for what I do has dried up to an alarming rate due to all the factories closing down around us.

sigh AND I cannot take time off work to go to school...so I'm kinda screwed.

Good wages in 1995 is $13.00 an hour

Low income in 2008 is $13.00 an hour

Getting to post on GLP during work hours is PRICELESS!

That list is really about 5 years too late, only those that started working in those fields 5 years ago are making money, There are new jobs right now that most of us wont know about until its already too late.

Average pay for a Hedge Fund manager was 1 Billion $$$$ in 2007 some are making 25 Million a Week!!! Most people don't know this and they aren't going to tell you how much money they have been making.

The best advice I can give is: be self-employed and have multiple streams of income.

Yeah, 13 bucks is no longer very good anymore, thanks to the Fed having the money printing machines working overtime 24/7 for years and years. Gold is a good measure of the value of the dollar. Gold is about triple the price it was in 2002. Therefore, these $50,000 jobs are only paying $16,666 in 2002 dollars. Even if you could go to school, by the time you got out, these jobs' wages would remain the same but the value of each dollar will have gone down even more making them even less attractive.

Imagine being a veterinarian and struggling to survive. It's criminal theft of everyone's livelihood and it's a shame that no one does anything about it.

Nice theory, if we were on the gold standard. Essentially you're saying everything as tripled since 2002? So a $24 K auto would be $72 K now? Not quite.

That list is funny.

I'm an ELEMENTARY TEACHER, and where I live you START at $60,000.

I'm in my 4th year, and will make $71,000 this year.

That's with 3+ months vacation a year, a 4% raise every year, fantastic bennies, an AMAZING retirement, being off work at 3:00 PM every day, no weekends, etc....

People think teachers don't make anything --- that's the biggest lie EVER !!
