It's an expensive world out there, especially if you live in a big city.
Fortunately, there are more than a few high-paying jobs in Ontario that are currently hiring, and they come with a salary of at least $70,000 per year.
Of course, you typically need to have a solid mix of education and experience to qualify for that kind of paycheque, but some of these jobs only ask for a few years of work under your belt or even just a high school diploma.
So it's time to fix up your resume and start applying — you might just land your dream job.
