Workopolis Names Mobile Applications Developer The #1 Surprisingly High Paying Job

Making an app for that. There’s good Money in that. Workopolis recently published a list of “Six surprisingly high paying jobs,” and Mobile applications developer was named number one.

“In good news for those of us not the big bosses of firms or in the financial sector, these well-paying jobs aren’t just for bankers, insurance folks and executives,” wrote Workopolis’ Peter Harris.

“The rise in popularity of tablets, smartphones and other mobile devices, means more and more companies are developing apps for multiple mobile operating systems. The average starting salaries for mobile app developers range from $72,500 to $102,750.”

You can get trained for a career in this field at schools like Visual College of Art and Design – Vancouver. Their Mobile Game Development and Design program teaches you the fundamentals you need to apply industry standard software and techniques to the creation of mobile applications.

There is also a high demand for professionals to support mobile devices. You can get trained for this field by studying triOs College’s Mobile & Desktop Support Technician Program. This program also offers Microsoft and BlackBerry® Certification.
