Does the money matter when searching for your next job? Of course, it does. Several things come to mind like raising and supporting a family, enjoying a certain lifestyle, affording a nice home, and saving for the future.

Remembering back when America was returning to work following two years of COVID, families, and businesses were escaping their current jobs and locations and discovering a new life in South Dakota. This is a great place to live, work, and raise a family. Plus, it's so affordable. On the other hand, some jobs may not be able to compete with the salaries in other parts of the country.

In Minnesota, you will find some pretty attractive and high-paying jobs. It all depends on the type of career in your wheelhouse. Like South Dakota, in Minnesota, some of the highest-paying jobs are in the medical field.
