Fulfilling Careers That Pay Well

 Having a job you love, that makes you feel like you’re making a difference and that actually pays well seems to be the dream scenario, but is it actually possible?

Well, if you were to look around places like Facebook, for the most part you’re going to see a bunch of people complaining about their jobs and praying for the weekend, so if you’re using them as your baseline example, then probably not.

However, if you’re willing to consider the fact that those are just a minority of people and that those who actually enjoy their job don’t feel the need to brag about the fact every 5 minutes because they’re busy actually enjoying the things they have to be focused on what they don’t have.

Whether you’re looking for a change of career or are just starting and aren’t yet sure what you want to do, but know that you don’t want a job for the sake of having one and actually want to make a difference, then in this post, we’re going to share with you some of the most fulfilling careers that actually pay well so you can enjoy the best of both worlds.


If you like children and want to work with them, taking care of them each day, then there are plenty of options for a childcare career for you to choose from. You can work in private or state daycare centres, you can work abroad as a nanny or aupair which also gives you the chance to live and experience working in another country, or you can even set yourself up as a self-employed childcare provider. You will need a qualification for this which you can study for at a college or even online with some practical placements, but it’s not that difficult to get into if this is something you’re passionate about.


Counseling is a great career to have if you really love helping people and guiding them towards solutions. As a counselor, you can work with couples, families, children or even people who are suffering from things like anxiety, depression or PTSD. There are many routes into counseling, so it’s worth checking out with your local college or university to see what you need for this career.

Social Work:

Social work is an extremely rewarding career to have, but it’s one that take a lot of your emotional energy and have you dealing with things that you could find it difficult to detach from emotionally, so it’s best to do some research into this career first to see if it’s really the right one for you, because although it’s extremely rewarding, it’s definitely not something that everyone is suited to. You can find out more about the different types of routes you can take into social work, such as courses like the advanced accredited online social work program.


Teaching is, again, not a career for everyone and is something that attracts a certain type of personality. Teaching doesn’t necessarily mean working in a school setting - especially nowadays when you can work online and teach on basically any subject that someone wants to learn such as languages. Teaching of any kind is highly rewarding and is typically well paid no matter which way you choose to do it.
