While there are several high-paying jobs in British Columbia, not all of them are hard to fill. 
Indeed, a global employment website, notes that salary is the first consideration for many people who are considering a new job. But the pandemic has revamped the job market. Many high-paying industries see jobs fill quickly while others have seen extensive job loss. 
The company notes, however, that many industries are now on the lookout for talent. In particular, there are talent shortages in skilled-based, high-paying industries.
The data listed represent roles that have been open for longer than 60 days in 2021 on Indeed’s website. While job postings can be opened for longer than 60 days, the company used this measure as a proxy for difficult hiring.
Animal lovers will find plenty of opportunities in the market, as Canada currently has lots to offer veterinarians and veterinary surgeons, according to Indeed.
Senior software engineers are the most highly sought-after candidates in B.C.'s job market, with a whopping 47 per cent of postings up for over two months with an average salary of $100,000. 
Chiropractors followed in second, with 31 per cent of postings staying up for over two months with an average salary of $95,569. 
Physiotherapists and mechanics were fourth and fifth in B.C.'s job market.
