While it’s true that many of the jobs recently created in most fields are lower-paying, entry-level positions that can feel like they’re taking advantage of un- and underemployed college grads, that’s not the case across the board.

In fact, there are a number of high-paying careers that are hiring right now and that are slated to produce even more high-paying jobs within the next couple of years. Check it out.

With an increased move toward cloud-based computing, IT security is becoming more important than ever for businesses throughout the country.

In terms of education, you’ll likely need a bachelor’s degree in computer science or programming, with some firms looking for a master’s level education for the highest paying positions.
