Professionals in the venture capital, semiconductors and management consulting industries command the highest salaries today, according to premier job search and career portal HeadHonchos.com.
Professionals in these industries earn compensation that is 30-60 per cent higher, on average, than those who work in other industries.
Risk-taking capacity remains a key factor in determining rewards, but compensation in industries like semiconductors is driven mainly by the demand for super-specialised talent, the report which analysed data for around half a million middle management professionals with 6-35 years of experience, said.
“The trends are a reflection of the growth of knowledge industries like IT, semiconductors, finance and business services in the economy,” HeadHonchos.com CEO Uday Sodhi said.
