If you work far more than the next guy and get more excited about your job than about family or any other activity, you may be a workaholic.

If this sounds like you, it might be worth your precious few moments of personal time to find a job that will make up for all those extra hours you put in.

To find jobs with the biggest payoff for workaholics, we analyzed US Census data for about 478 occupations from the Minnesota Population Center's 2016 American Community Survey Integrated Public Use Microdata Series.

Based on that survey data, the average employed American adult works a little over 39 hours a week and has a total earned income - a combination of salary, business, and any other form of money earned in a year - of about $50,589.

While some may work more or less than the average depending on their employer or where they are in their career, people with the following professions report typically working an average of at least 45 hours a week and earning at least $60,000 a year, on average. We've also included brief descriptions of the careers based on the Department of Labor's O*NET job database.
