If you're looking to apply for one of the highest-paying jobs in America, you probably want to study one of these most in-demand skills.
Business Insider decided to look at the software programs that are mentioned in multiple US jobs with the largest annual salaries as of May 2019. These six-figure jobs are mainly part of the healthcare industry, with salaries ranging from $129,950 for postsecondary law teachers to $261,730 for anesthesiologists. To find the commonly listed programs across these jobs, we looked at the tech skills of each job from the Occupational Information Network (O*NET).
We excluded two jobs that were categorized as "all other" (undefined roles within dentist specialists, as well as the physician and ophthalmologist categories) because O*NET doesn't list their tech skills.
We decided to only look at the hottest technologies, which O*NET defines as tech skills that are "frequently included in employer job postings," to find the most popular skills for working in one of America's highest-paying jobs.
Various Microsoft Office programs made up the top skills on the list. For instance, Microsoft Excel is at the very top because it is mentioned in 21 of the 28 highest-paying jobs.
The following are the 16 common tech software needed for the highest-paying jobs in America, along with some of the jobs that require these skills:
