Low-Stress, High-Paying Jobs

See on Scoop.itM-learning, E-Learning, and Technical Communications

Who doesn’t want a high-paying job? Some of these high-pay jobs may come with high stress, but fortunately, we’ve found jobs that are low in stress and high in pay. Read on for jobs that offer flexibility, freedom, and good working conditions as well as hefty paychecks.

Danielle M. Villegas‘s insight:

My friend Craig Cardimon posted this, and pointed out #2 in the article. 


I think it truly depends on the job if it’s low-stress or not. My last job, essentially doing the same thing, was very high stress, to the point that I thought I was having heart condition issues. My job now–similar job, but definitely significantly less stress involved, and I hope I can stay at this job a long time. High stress job–low paying. Low stress job–pays almost twice as much as the high stress job, plus I get to work primarily from home.  


In the end, I think a lot of it has to do with the workload and the attitudes of the company, especially towards all of its workers, contractors or employees, and having realistic expectations. But I think that’s probably true of any job.
