When it comes to lists of the best jobs, a few fields tend to get all the attention. By now, it shouldn’t be news to anyone that people with programming and coding skills are in high demand, or that physicians make a lot of money. But the universe of great jobs isn’t limited to software engineers and doctors.
The truth is, there’s a whole world of exciting career paths out there, especially if you’re a young person trying to decide what kind of job is right for you. Unfortunately, many of them are overlooked because people simply don’t know they’re out there. Reddit users recently shared some of their picks for overlooked jobs in this thread. Among the jobs they suggested college kids consider were wastewater treatment (“good gig, pays well and there’s tons of job opportunities,” according to a user who works in this field), technical writing (“English majors CAN get jobs”), and logistics and supply chain management (“Half the people I speak to about what I do have absolutely no idea that it even exists”).
Those jobs are just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to overlooked careers. We’ve rounded up 10 more under-the-radar jobs that offer strong growth opportunities for people with the right skills and training. Check out this list of great jobs you may not have considered yet, along with what they pay.
