As a starting salary? Big law firms pay about double that, but you'll need to graduate a good law school. Accounting pays less, but big firms will get to six figures pretty quickly. Many doctors earn six figures to start but they often carry a lot of debt. Startups are their own universe. Compensation is all over the place. Same with financial services - from very low to insanely high.

Plenty of tradesman (building, plumbing) and businessman can make 100k though not at the beginning. Lots of managers in large companies, school administrators etc all reach that number.

What are your skills and qualifications?

Does anyone know if these jobs make as much in London, UK?

Or are the American salaries way higher?

Where in America are you talking about?
Seems too easy to be true..

Making 100K a year is not easy at all. You need either
1. amazing (probably expensive) education (med school, law school, etc)
or
2. many years of experience and hard work to build yourself up (own your business, manager or higher at a company or hospital)


Nobody wakes up at age 20 with no skills or talent and makes 100K a year.

There is no salary that you can apply for that pays 100k. Unless you go to Harvard Law etc.. However if you are looking to make that number most industry's have tons of potential. after you got to understand what you are good at and what you would be passionate about start from the bottom climb up slowly which will be hell but 2 3 years later very likely you can get there if you are determined.

Good luck

If you graduate from an Ivy league school and studied computer science. Your first job will be more than 100,000.

I don't know what the job market is like in London, sorry. But surely a Cambridge graduate makes more than someone who went to a local polytechnic college. If you graduate an American Ivy League law school, MBA program or medical school, your first job is likely to pay well. It's not too easy to be true - you need to be very bright and hard-working to get into (and then graduate) one of these programs. Ordinary college graduates make lower salaries.

Tech jobs in silicon valley usually make at least that much BUT cost of living is ridiculous. Also, a lot of people usually have a lot of student loans to get the education needed for that kind of job.

In many cases PAs make $100k+ as a new grad. As a hired position. For 3 days a week (can make a lot more if offered overtime or have a second job). 2-3 years of schooling after a Bachelors degree.

route to CRNA is earning your RN BSN, then working 1-2 years in an ICU then entering a CRNA f/t program (3 years?)

BS in engineering can get you that, if not immediately then after a few years. MS in engineering or math even better.

If I worked full time I could make over 100k - I’m a therapist.

My husband was making about 150k in a real estate related business (until covid...).

These aren’t starting salaries though..

DH is a manager of a huge company, he makes about $150k. It's not a starting salary and he worked very hard to get there. It's hard work and long hours, I think he's underpaid for his position.

A lot of these positions require ivy league education that comes with high student loan debt.
There are exceptions to every rule but you cant bank on being the exception.
The best thing to do is to look at the salary trajectory of the fields you're interested in.

I'm going to argue that you don't need to necessarily go to an Ivy League. There are public universities that are of comparable level, at a fraction of the cost (University of Michigan, University of Florida, Ohio State are just some that quickly come to mind), the so-called "public ivies."

Regardless OP, what fields are you interested in? Some jobs you can work up to a 100k salary from a Bachelor's. Others you will need certifications and higher education degrees.

For instance, you can work up to a 100k+ job in the Foreign Service with only a Bachelor's degree. If you want a director position, you'll probably need a Master's. To get a professorship at a university (Harvard pays 200k, most others pay 100-150k), you'll need a PhD.

Luckily, there are many master's programs now available online and or reasonably priced. Western Governor's University has been gaining popularity because they offer bachelor's, master's, and certifications all online for a reasonable price (I haven't tried them, so try at your own risk).

My daughter is getting a double bachelors in math ( major in combinatorics and optimization) and business ( major in sustainability in business.) she expects to work as a programmer which she is learning on the side. two separate degrees and expects to find employment at six figures on graduation ( or at least thought so before the pandemic. Now? Who knows?
