To many people, money isn't everything.
According to U.S. News & World Report's latest ranking of the highest-paying jobs for millennials, more than 1,000 surveyed Americans aged 20 to 34 said salary is the most important factor in making career decisions, followed by work-life balance, and stress level.
U.S. News used this information — as well as future job prospects, unemployment rates, and upward mobility — to identify the best jobs for millennial workers right now.
Only jobs requiring a bachelor's degree or less were included in the ranking.
Average salaries typically skew higher, due to higher incomes earned by top employees or those at better-paying companies, whereas the median salary is representative of what the majority of people in that position make.
All job descriptions come from the Occupational Information Network (O*NET), a US Department of Labor database that compiles detailed information on hundreds of jobs.
