Good news for the technologically challenged: It's still possible to rake in the big bucks even if you don't know the difference between "binary" and "byte." Glassdoor has ranked the highest-paying jobs in the country based on average base salary, and though TechRepublic points out 11 of the top 25 are in tech, that means the majority are not. The top 10:

  1. Physician: $187,876
  2. Pharmacy Manager: $149,064
  3. Patent Attorney: $139,272
  4. Medical Science Liaison: $132,842
  5. Pharmacist: $125,847
  6. Enterprise Architect: $112,560
  7. Physician Assistant: $112,529
