These are among NJ’s highest paying jobs right now



Did you hear the crazy news of how much you now have to earn to be able to afford to own a home? Try $107,000 annually. 

A lot of people with respectable careers are being priced out of home ownership in an already expensive place like New Jersey. Think about this. Imagine being a radiologist, or a chief of police, or an investment banker with an average salary in a one-income household and still unable to purchase a home.

That’s the reality.

Because as respectable as those careers are, according to data from within the past year from all those jobs on average earn less than $107,000.

The sad reality is almost anything you do for a living in a place like the Garden State the pay is never enough. Unless you’re Phil and Tammy Murphy coasting on Goldman Sachs money, you are hurting.

The following list is the average annual salary specifically in New Jersey for various jobs. See if yours is on the list and if you’re above or below average.

Prepare for the future. Time is money concept.
