Salaries of “Different” Jobs

How many job titles can you name? From software developer to welder to baggage handler, most of us could maybe come up with a hundred jobs or so. But, there are thousands of job titles out there. You know, the ones that make you say, "Huh, that's different." And, some of those less-well-known or “different” jobs pay well. Wouldn’t it be nice to see a list of your alternative options?

I scoured PayScale’s database to create a quick list of jobs you may not have considered, and have included basic salary information. You can search for more yourself by going to our Job page. What less-well-known job suits your fancy? It may simply be the one that pays best. Take a look at our list of salaries of “different” jobs and you may discover your next career path.
