Paula’s Answer

Think of a job as an opportunity to solve a problem. The first step is to identify problems that are interesting/challenging/exciting for you, and for which you have the skills or are willing to learn. The next step is to research industries and companies that are facing those problems. These days, the highest paying jobs are in the medical and legal fields, as well as IT. Pilots and Flight Engineers are also among the highest paid.

Leslie’s Answer

Robotic Process Automation (RPA) is a technology that automates manual business processes. It has been around for several years but is now really taking off in the public and private sector. UiPath is one company that provides this technology. If you Google UiPath Academy you will find the company offers their training for free. You just need a computer and access to the internet. By successfully completing a range of courses you can earn a certification that can lead you to a job making 50k or more.

Tech sales is a great field for high pay and a good challenge. If you have good people skills, a warm personality, and are a quick study - then you can go far in sales. Industrial Engineering is a great degree that opens many doors in this area.

According to Glassdoor, here is the list of the highest paying jobs of last year: https://www.glassdoor.com/blog/highest-paying-jobs-2018/


Which jobs are exciting is a very personal question. Jobs with similar titles can be very different in practice depending on the culture of the company, how much autonomy individuals are given, etc. I'd recommend searching on different job sites like Indeed to learn about different types of jobs, major job responsibilities, and required knowledge, skills and experiences. You can also visit sites like Glassdoor to learn what it is like to work at different companies.


There are many other factors that may impact your enjoyment with a role: job security, professional development opportunities, company leadership, work life balance, opportunities for advancement, benefits, corporate social responsibility, etc.
