Ten Underrated Jobs

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 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.

In Search of Cracks

Especially when trying to solve a big problem, it's easy to miss a crack of opportunity. Perhaps the examples in my article today will help you stay alert to them so you can widen or at least appreciate them.

Nine Professions' Downsides: Physician, clinical psychologist, manager, lawyer, teacher, social worker, accountant, career counselor, librarian

Most reviews of careers have a positive bias. That's largely because most of the reviewers are in those careers. Those unhappy with it have left before being asked to describe it in an interview.  Also, cognitive dissonance causes a positive bias: People have devoted years to the career, so it's hard to acknowledge that it has been a poor investment of time and money.

To provide a bit of counterbalance, in my article today, I offer downsides of nine popular careers.

Finding Good Work: From stalled to jazzed.

As my article today, I posted edited versions of two very different exchanges between a caller and me on my KALW-FM (NPR-San Francisco) radio program today. Perhaps you might find something in them to help you find well-suited work.

To Be Awakened

Ah to be awakened. perhaps by the sunrise, a lover’s touch, or often in my case, my doggie licking my face saying, “I want to go out.”

Of course, those are mere literal awakenings. More interesting are awakened ideas.

As my article today, I offer some of my clients', colleagues', friends', and my recent awakenings, changed views.  

I've chosen to include a wide range to make it more likely that one or more will resonate with you or trigger an awakening of your own.
