Credit the stellar coffee, the crisp apples, or Bill Gates and Microsoft money pumping into the economy for making Washington one of the leading states for project management professionals. Towering above all the other regions is the triple threat of Seattle-Tacoma-Bellevue, a metropolitan area that hires more people in every field and where they earn more across the board. Computer and information system managers do well, with over 8,000 employed in the Seattle area alone, earning a median salary of nearly $137,000. Statewide, the only field that scores below average is Natural sciences managers, but they still make over $109,000, ranking them at 94% of the U.S. median annual earnings.
