Careers That Do Good For Others While Doing Good For Your Bank Balance

Tuesday, July 31, 2018

Some things are more important than money. But that doesn’t stop us from dedicating years of our life to working jobs we hate simply because we’re well remunerated for our efforts. If you’ve been working a job for some time and have grown to hate it more and more with every passing day, yet have become dependent on the income it provides, that can be a hard merry-go-round to hop off of. You yearn for a job that’s a little more fulfilling. A job that enables you to help your fellow human beings and make a positive difference in other people’s lives. The good news is that you don’t need to necessarily take a huge pay dip to pursue a career that doesn’t make you want to scoop your own eyes out with a melon baller. You may need to be a little more diligent as you manage your finances while training or learning but you’ll reap the reward of a long and satisfying career that offers the opportunities for progression you simply aren’t getting where you are now.

If you can bring yourself to take a leap of faith and step off the carousel, you could find an emotionally and financially rewarding career, no matter where you are in your professional journey, in the following…

Social work

If you achieved a bachelor's degree in any field but it didn’t bring you the sense of fulfilment you were hoping for there’s never a bad time to start studying for an
online master of social work degree. Going into the profession at master’s level will not only empower you with advanced knowledge but it will potentially give you a leading edge in job applications. If you want to make a meaningful difference in the lives of vulnerable people who need you the most, a career in social work can be yours with just 2 and a half years of part time online study.


There’s no greater privilege than being able to empower young minds and imbue them with the knowledge and skills that they’ll need to forge successful futures for themselves as adults. If you can dedicate some of your free mornings to spending some time volunteering in schools or even helping out with extra curricular activities, this can stand you in good stead for securing a place on a teaching course. The teaching profession values entrants from all walks of life with career experience in unrelated fields rather than young graduates fresh out of university. Your life experience and knowledge of the world of work can help you to better inform young people and encourage them to make better life choices.

Law enforcement

There are few more edifying ways of making a difference in your community than by becoming a law enforcement professional. Not only does the police service offer great pay at entry level, it also allows you to specialize in a huge range of specialisms and practices. Law enforcement is a rich tapestry that encompasses many disciplines. As you progress in your skills and career, you could find yourself commanding a
very impressive wage. Wherever your skills may lie, you will likely find stimulation and challenge while being well compensated financially and knowing that you’re making your community a better place.

Wanting to make the world better shouldn’t place a ceiling on your earning potential!
