Besides business, I really like helping others specifically by providing them with resources that they can use for whatever they need. For ex, I provided a classmate with some information about the next steps in a program that we were in because she missed the meeting. I gave her the name of the website and wrote an email for her so that she can send to the program. Anyway, I was wondering what jobs are good for helping people like this. One that requires a college degree preferably. I used to be interested in customer service but it simply doesn't pay enough. Are there any careers that pay well that involve helping others? Thank you so much.

Ask yourself a few questions:
Who is the audience you want to engage?
What type of lifestyle do you want or have that may be impacted by your choice.
How much education do you want to undergo?
Is flexibility important in your work choice?
Lastly seek out opportunities to shadow roles you are interested in so you can gain a good sense of the day to day responsibilities and see if it meets your expectations.
I currently work as a Global Mobility Manager which is a function within HR that assists with international employee populations. This includes immigration, relocations, assignments etc. I find it very rewarding because moving and starting a new job tends to be some of the more stressful points of someone's life and I have the opportunity to help them to make it as easy as possible. Personally, I enjoy going on those journeys with everyone I help - mid-level all the way up to executives.
