Here’s What 10 Careers Pay In Different Countries Around The World.

Sure, you should never take a job just for the money (although we won't judge you if you did). But if you were going to find a job you love, wouldn't you at least be a little bit curious about how much money you could make doing that job elsewhere?

The infographics below outline just how much the top earners in certain professions make in countries across the world, and the information just might surprise you. Who knew that Canadian firefighters would get paid the most, or that Norway (of all places) would put such high value on petroleum engineers?

We've got ten professions and ten top salaries, and the locations they're in are definitely eye-opening. If you can't plan an intercontinental move any time soon, don't worry: The United States just so happens to be a close second for most of these gigs.

Teacher

In the United States, public school teachers have a hard time of it -- class schedules, parents, and classroom sizes can sometimes feel out of control. However, in Switzerland, teachers are a bit more respected, and becoming one can mean a comfortable life.

Dentist

Who knew that in Spain, dentists were so highly sought-after, highly skilled, and most importantly, highly paid? Seriously -- that's more than double what they make in the United States!

Doctor

Doctors in the United States generally make a decent salary, but it turns out that in the Netherlands, they can actually do better -- it's basically another low salary tacked onto the national average.

Lawyer

You've got to speak the language, but if you're a Chinese person, going to law school isn't a bad deal. The position is considered very prestigious, and is also extremely well-paid.

Construction Manager

It makes sense that the highest paid construction jobs would be found in the UAE -- there, construction demands to be bigger, better, more complicated, and requiring more skilled people at the helm.
