Highest Salary in Botswana

CEOs of massive companies always top the list. In 2020, that was Tim Cook, Apple CEO, who cashed in some stock options and took home an enormous $265 million. That’s slightly over $1 million for each working day. Tim Cook took home almost $100 million in 2021.

The highest-paying job in the world, in a traditional sense, holds the number one spot in this article: anesthesiologist. They are also the only job listed above $300,000 a year. The list, however, does not take into account mega-CEOs like Warren Buffett and Jeff Bezos, who make considerably more than that.
