Everyone needs to have a job, but why should you settle for something that's not going to pay you what you're worth? If you live in the nation's capital, you might think that your job options are limited to working for the government or maybe in a museum. However, there are plenty of great jobs in Ottawa that are not only in diverse fields but also pay more than $100,000 a year.

Of course, looking for a job can be a pain. You have to start with an updated resume, and then you have to scroll through seemingly endless pages of listings.

On top of that, you have to find positions that not only pay enough but also match your specific skillset. It can be a bit of a slog. Luckily, we've taken a look at some of the high-paying jobs in Ottawa that are out there so that you don't have to.

Could you find something that you would like to apply to? Maybe, or maybe you want to do the research yourself. Still, these high-paying jobs could at least be a starting point for you to see just what kind of jobs are available that pay six figures.
