Hi Ryan, tbh I recommend just researching different jobs through Google. Here's a list of obscure, cool, and real jobs I found: "Private Island Caretaker, Ethical Hacker, Ferrari Driving Instructor, Video Game Designer, Fortune Cookie Writer, Hollywood Stunt Person, Toy Designer, Sommelier, Food Critic, and NASCAR Mechanic." All of these pay well, but I'd encourage you to find something that seems interesting that's also your passion (maybe that's teaching?)! The list came from here: https://www.trade-schools.net/articles/fun-jobs-that-pay-well.asp. Good luck! Hope this helps!

Review open positions on LinkedIn in several industries that interest you and take note of the minimum education requirements. Second, connect with people that hold these positions to get an idea of the day to day workload.

Research and sign up for job alerts. research could be internet based, or asking anyone you know with a job you find interesting, how they got there, how they found it etc. Linkedin is a good tool, and looking at niche job websites such as Escape the City.
