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.

Elena’s Answer

What may be a good fit for you would be a guidance counselor, a career coach or human resources associate, or social worker, just off the top of my head. You have options here in any of these as to what and who you work with. As a guidance counselor you can engage with college age or those in grades 6-12. A career coach engages with professionals and college age adults. Human Resource professionals can focus on a variety of areas within HR such as Learning and Development, Recruiting or as an HR business partner. Lastly social workers engage with a wide variety of people with different needs and level of support and can be found in schools as well as government.

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.

Kelley’s Answer

I think you would be a good fit in the Human Resources field - perhaps in development or training, maybe Talent Acquisitions. These roles, over time, can pay very well but also be very rewarding!

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.

James’s Answer

Many times the company you work for dictates the amount of money you make regardless of the position. For example I served as a training manager for customer service representatives and earned a very good income. Team supervisors that are responsible for coaching and mentoring sales people often make a lot of money since their base pay is often supplemented by bonuses for the amount of revenue their teams generate.

Avanthi’s Answer

Various jobs and companies pay at different rates, while pay is very important finding the job you would like going is important on the long run. You can get paid quite a sum to be individual contributor or to work alone, but for someone who loves to help others, you will be miserable being alone and the payment may not be worth it. So it's always good to strike the right balance between pay and what you love doing best. As long as your pay covers your cost of living and allows you to save to achieve your aspirations, doing what you love doing will help you build a long term career.
