  1. Find My Profession
  2. Glassdoor
  3. LinkedIn
  4. The Ladders
  5. 100K Crossing

And now for the detailed reviews…

1. Find My Profession

5 Best Websites to Land Six-Figure Salary Jobs

Find My Profession is unique from any other company on this list because we are not a job board. Rather than hosting jobs on our website for you to apply to, Find My Profession is the first-ever professionally managed job search service for six-figure earners.

Think of it this way, when your power goes out, you don't start climbing up poles to fix the electricity. You contact an electrician. So why would someone who is not a professional career finder, attempt to job search on their own? You have better things to spend your valuable time on.

We offer the most elite job search package where we manage all aspects of the job search for you so that you don't have to. If you'd prefer to never apply to another job again, then Find My Profession is for you.

Pros: Find My Profession is the only professionally managed job search service for six-figure earners. We save you time by managing all aspects of the job search for you.

Cons: Find My Profession is a premium service without a free option. You must be willing to pay a one-time fee ($8,000+) to retain these services.

2. Glassdoor

5 Best Websites to Land Six-Figure Salary Jobs

Glassdoor is no doubt one of the most popular and best websites to find six-figure salary jobs. The biggest reason is their comprehensive platform. It not only features millions of jobs but also has more salary information than any other site in the world.

Glassdoor makes it easy to find six-figure salary jobs by using filters to define your salary range. While most people don’t use the maximum salary range, setting a minimum can be very helpful. While many other job boards offer salary filters, they are usually inaccurate. This is not the case with Glassdoor since they have such a large database of salary information.

Also, Glassdoor is a great place to find jobs because you can view company reviews from real employees. This can be a deciding factor when you are trying to determine which company to work for. Do people enjoy working at this company? Do they approve of the CEO? You can find out all this information and more with a great looking and simple user interface.

Pros: Glassdoor makes it easy to find six-figure salary jobs. This is due to their vast salary information and convenient salary filters. Having 10 million jobs, tons of reviews, and a great UI, Glassdoor is the perfect place to start your search.

Cons: The only real negative about Glassdoor is their lack of advanced search options. They do offer a few filters such as salary, company ratings, and job types. But overall, they have fewer options than most job boards.  

3. LinkedIn

5 Best Websites to Land Six-Figure Salary Jobs

LinkedIn is the world’s largest social network for business professionals. According to Statista - a company that provides statistics and studies from more than 18,000 sources - 45% of all internet users with a household income of more than 75,000 U.S. dollars used LinkedIn. Another study by Carrealism - a career advice and job search magazine - showed that 90 percent of in-house recruiters hire through LinkedIn.

With those statistics alone, it’s clear why LinkedIn is a great place to find six-figure salary jobs. Where there are recruiters, there will be job seekers and vice versa. Not only can you be discovered on LinkedIn, but you can also apply for jobs. LinkedIn offers a feature that shows how you rank compared to other applicants. They will even let you apply using your LinkedIn profile.

Pros: LinkedIn is particularly great for senior and executive level professionals who are looking for six-figure salary jobs. With such a high concentration of top earners, recruiters looking for senior-level individuals turn to LinkedIn to find the best passive and active job seekers.

Cons: With the option to purchase premium features, those who don't spend money may be at a disadvantage. Recruiters are more likely to find those with premium subscriptions then someone who is using LinkedIn for free.  

4. The Ladders

5 Best Websites to Land Six-Figure Salary Jobs

The Ladders is a career community focused on hosting six-figure salary jobs for job seekers. They offer great features for premium members that allow you to see how you rank compared to your competition. These features show you the salary range of your competition, their education level, and other important information.

The Ladders services are divided into two main plans, basic and premium. The basic membership is free and allows you to create a profile that can be found by prospective employers. A premium service costs 25 dollars a month and allows you to apply for jobs directly.

Pros: Since Ladders focuses on six-figure salary jobs, there is a much higher concentration of high paying jobs. Avoid filtering through thousands of unqualified jobs and only search from a premium list of six-figure jobs.

Cons: The biggest problem with The Ladders is that they are charging you a monthly fee to access a job board without any guarantee of employment. This can be a challenging hurdle to overcome when almost all other job boards are free.  

5. 100k Crossing

5 Best Websites to Land Six-Figure Salary Jobs

100k Crossing is the largest collection of six-figure salary jobs on earth. Their mission is to track down every job through research, offering: job openings from employer career web pages, jobs from virtually every public interest organization, every government office, and every job board in America.

With over 2.2 million jobs available and thousands being added weekly, there is no doubt that 100k Crossing is one of the best websites to find six-figure jobs in the U.S.

Pros: 100k Crossing combines a great user interface with a focus on six-figure jobs. This site is 100% free to use and combines jobs from a ton of resources all into one place for convenient and centralized searching.

Cons: Just like Indeed or any job board, 100K Crossing is just that, a job board. Besides having a huge list of six-figure salary jobs, 100k Crossing requires time and effort to apply for these jobs.
