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.
