10 Jobs That Pay 100,000 A Year

Forbes has compiled a list of ten surprising jobs
that can pay you $100,000 a year.

Court reporter: Must be able to type 200 wpm. I can type 70 on a good day.

Professional (life or career) coach: Business or life coaches try to provide a confidence for struggling entrepreneurs or aspiring novelists. If you have to pay someone for confidence whats the point?

Mine manager: No advanced degree required but must be able to plan out procedures for mining projects, includes setting budgets and enforcing deadlines. Sounds boring and stressful.

Salesperson: Nothing was really mentioned on what kind products you must sell in order to earn 100,000 a year but I suspect drugs.

Truck driver: I have enough trouble driving my own car.

Pressman: Must be able to operates a printing press. I would probably fall asleep.

Technical writer: Must have a degree in English or technical writing. Sounds awfully boring.

Restaurant manager: Specific duties vary but most include the purchase of food and equipment, menu planning with the chef, and inspection of safety and health precautions. Not my cup of tea.


Air traffic controller: Must undergo rigid physical and psychological tests and have excellent vision, hearing, and speaking skills. I like to daydream a lot so I doubt I'd be qualified for this job.

Elementary school principal: All three of my school principles have had a stroke or heart attack while working. Coincidence I think not.

Gosh, I don't know if I agree with most of those. Unless, of course, it depends on where you live. I'm in the midwest. Probably the average Boston income of a McDonald's employee is more than lawyers make here ;) Cost of living.. cost of living.. cost of living :)

So true NV.

I could swing mine manger. Although I could never put the safety of the workers behind profits.

Truck driver? Yes!!! I love the open road.

Pressman? Never. The noise is horrible.

Tech writer? Yes. But I am with Pix. Boring.

Restaurant manager? Yes. But only at Hooters.

These jobs are boooring. I rather be poor.

prettykitty said...

even with being in the graphics industry, i had no idea press men made that much. i always thought they were fat union workers who smelled like ink.

PixieGaf said...

GetFlix my brother-in-law used to be a truck driver and he hated it. You have to own your truck first before you start making money and those trucks cost as much as a house!

Joy I don't think I like any of these jobs so I will be poor with you.

PK makes you wonder doesn't it.

Elizabeth said...

I'm not sure what Joy was smoking when she said that these jobs are boring, but I'm a court reporting student and I'm LOVING IT! It's everything BUT boring! Where else can I go to school for two to three years and come out making more than a first year lawyer or doctor?
As long as there are stupid people and a judicial system, I have a job! hehe

You can make over 100,000 a year as a real estate broker. But during a recession/real estate slowdown, you must find the right projects and clients, work creatively, and work harder than your competition. During real estate booms, making that much is relatively easy. If you are unable to talk to people and persuade them, don't even get started, this is the wrong line of work for you.

Court reporting is an amazing career. If you're thinking about looking into it, check out some local campus schools or an online program like Simply Steno - Court Reporting School

But he's tryiong none the less. I've been using Movable-type on various websites for about a year and am nervous

First off I would like to say terrific blog! I had a quick question
in which I'd like to ask if you don't mind.
I was interested to find out how you center yourself and clear your mind prior to
writing. I have had a tough time clearing my thoughts in
getting my ideas out there. I do enjoy writing however it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are wasted just trying to
figure out how to begin. Any suggestions or hints?

Cheers!
