Fifteen Jobs that Pay $60,000

Filed under: my stuff — mete23 @ 8:21 am

CNN had an article that listed fifteen jobs that pay around $60,000. I personally think a “comfortable” salary range is $70,000-$75,000. That does not mean that I plan my educational career around obtaining a job with that price tag, nor do I think I will ever earn that much.
