Great question! As others have mentioned, there are a variety of jobs and industries that can be fun to work in. I would say there three main factors that make a job fun:
1) The people you work with
2) The company values
3) The industry
1. Working with people who are enjoyable makes any job fun. When research and applying to companies, try to find ones that have a great company culture and are inviting. Or talk to your friends or mentors to get their perspective on companies that they have worked at.
2. Speaking of company culture, a fun job can be based on the tone that is set by management. A lot of companies (particularly start-ups) pride themselves on having a fun work environment by encouraging team events, social hours, and team bonding activities.
3. A fun industry is specific to you. What are your interests? Are there industries with jobs that align with those interests? By doing a bit of self-reflection, you can start to find areas of the market that interest you.
Hope this helps, and remember that plenty of people change their careers or find opportunities to shift within the same industry after they've been working for many years!
They all pay you well. Whatever field you choose, spend some time volunteering and see if you like that field/job. If you like to work in the technology area, take some courses. These days, you can learn literally learn anything on you tube and decide what you want to do. Good luck!
Apparently, if you work in the career you have interest, you will have fun and you can do it good.
Below are my suggestions :
1. Think about your hobbies, interest, favorite subjects, etc. and identify the related jobs
E.g. If you have interest in Maths, would you like to be an accountant, banker, engineer, financial analyst, maths teacher, etc.
If you like music, would you like to be a musician, singer, composer, music producer, music teacher, etc.
2. Find out more on these careers and identify what have interest
3. Speak to someone who are working in these careers. Seek guidance from your mentor, school career counsellor, your parents, etc.
4. Shortlist 1-2 jobs you would like to pursue
5. Explore the entry criteria of relevant subject in the college
Hope this helps! Good Luck!
That being said, my best advice is to look at yourself and make a list of things that you enjoy doing, or that you might enjoy doing then do some research to find out what people doing that job think. Ask them about the parts of the job that people on the outside don't see. Then it comes to the hard question. You have to ask yourself if you can see yourself putting in the time and effort to make the money that job would take, and if would you still enjoy it.
That last part is critical. I know many people who like to write books and stories, but if they were required to complete them as part of a job, they wouldn't find it nearly as rewarding and fun. Sometimes things that you enjoy are best to be left outside of work and kept as a hobby.
Once you have found something that you want to pursue, that is the time to start down the path of obtaining the skills that it will take. Whether that is an advanced degree through university, certification through specialty programs, or going through a technical trade school program just put in the work.
I would recommend finding your passion and your interests. There are many careers that are fun and exciting, however it is all in what you make it.
Fields such as Fashion, Sports, Technology, Entertainment and others can offer an exciting career. Jobs such as video game designer, video game player for example can be fun, however require a lot of time and skill. Starting your own business around a passion or interest of yours can be something that could be fun for you, however you will need a solid plan and conduct research on if your chosen profession is viable and sustainable to provide a good living for yourself.
Aaron recommends the following next steps:
It doesn’t matter if you want to go into hospitality, sports, technology or another field; you can always get a fun, high-paying job.
But remember that everyone has their idea of what makes a job “fun,”
Usually there are lot of good paying jobs requires bachelor's degree. Not having a college degree doesn't have to be a setback, but having a professional degree brings you more high paying jobs with great benefits.
So, find out your interests, passion and pick a right profession and get into a college.
Define what salary/income you consider good paying job meaning? 30K or 50K or 100K Per year?
All the best for your future endeavors
