A couple days ago, I described downsides of nine popular careers. A commenter on that article asked if I might describe some underrated jobs’ upsides. Okay.
An objection to many of the following jobs is that they pay poorly. But some people feel their lives are, net, better with a low-pay/low-status job that lets them do what they enjoy or to have lots of free time after work rather than a higher-pay/high-status career that requires after-work worry and after-work work.
The ten jobs I describe in my PsychologyToday.com article today aren’t for everyone but, especially if you need a career win, a life win after some setbacks, these not-unduly-competitive jobs may be worth a look.
