10 little tempting jobs ... but very well paid

March 24, 2024

We must assume it: we live in a rather bad economic context, especially if you are a young person . We have worse jobs than our parents had, with worse economic conditions and worse prospects of progress.

The generation of "titulitis"

Of course, if there is a phenomenon that bothers us as a young generation it is the paradox of academic degrees . They had told us when we were children that, if we studied hard, our effort would be rewarded a few years later, in the form of good jobs that would make us a person and that would allow us to live, at least, with the same comforts as our parents: a nice house, money to travel and discover other cultures, entertainment ...

But it was a lie .

However, in this eagerness to want to build a better future, we wanted to follow the pre-established norms and we have been the slave of the 'titulitis'. The titulitis, which It is this imperative need to have diplomas of all kinds to accredit our wisdom and our academic success . But, as we have seen later, collecting titles was no guarantee of finding a job.

Economic conditions and wages

How much do young people charge today? In Spain, in addition to a youth unemployment that is around 50% (yes, it is said soon), the "lucky" who manage to find a job are not in a much better situation. Most pay salaries within the SMI range (€ 655 per month) and € 1,000. Salaries that, in any case, allow a fairly reduced standard of living, with the minimum comforts.

Disgusting jobs ... but paid at the price of gold

Have you ever dreamed of receiving a salary of € 3,000, € 4,000 or € 5,000 per month? Maybe yes, but sure you are realistic and it does not even occur to you that you can find a job with these characteristics , at least in the short term. It is possible that when you think about jobs in which these amounts are charged think about executives, directors of companies, and so on. But there are also "other style" jobs that cost very well. Although, of course, they may not be as appetizing.

What are these jobs that can get us out of misery? Trust me, there are jobs that pay very well, although everything has its friendly face and its less kind face : they are usually jobs that nobody wants to do, because of their hardness, or because of some circumstance that makes them ... unappetizing.

Unpleasant jobs with good salaries

In this article we will review a total of 10 jobs that are very well paid ... because they are the least suggestive .

1. Chicken sexer

A classic among the jobs a bit ... weird. Knowing how to guess (because it is really complicated) the sex of the chickens is a very uninspiring job, but it pays very well: up to about € 5,000 per month . But it is not so easy, since it requires more than three years of training to be able to discriminate between male and female chickens quickly enough and accurately. Spending the day looking at chicken asses does not sound too stimulating, but maybe the salary will compensate you. It's up to you.

2. Embalmer of corpses

If the job of chicken sexer has seemed a little strange, better not read this. Corpse embalmers can earn more than € 3,000 per month performing chemical treatments with which to "clean" people who have already died. The high salary is not so much due to being in contact with the dead (although it is certainly not something that excites most people), but rather because of the danger of working with chemical products.

3. Director of a bank

Yes, a great salary. But you will be marked by the street and you will be ultimately responsible for everything that happens in your entity, of course also the bad. Does that compensate a salary of € 15,000 per month (or much more)? Well, you can start studying economics. If your father was already a bank director, you have it easier.

4. Cobrador del frac

The collectors of the frac pursue down the street to debtors and debtors . The positive: they charge good amounts, usually on commission of what they manage to raise. The bad: as you cross with a debtor a little aggressive, you can leave very badly stopped.

5. Hot dog vendor

In large cities, such as London, New York or Chicago, employees of large companies have little time to eat. In addition, the restaurants of downtown of these cities are usually very expensive. Solution? Eat in a fast food stop. Street vendors can earn between 35,000 and 75,000 euros per year . As much as some people find a job a bit "seedy", it's a good business.

6. Manager of funeral services

More dead. Funeral services are responsible for assisting in the farewell moments of a recently deceased person, transporting the coffin and organizing the event. But yes, they earn a lot of money: more than 60,000 euros per year .

7. Rescuer of golf balls

Is there this work? You are right . As you probably know, golf courses have small lakes and ponds in which, inevitably, every day many balls fall that deviated from their goal. And of course, someone is going to have to submerge to "rescue" the hundreds of balls that accumulate. One Jim Reid found a vein in this need, collecting with his company more than 100,000 balls a day in different golf courses.

8. Model of the body part

It is not an especially hard or unpleasant job, but ... would you feel good with a lot of photographers portraying and praising your feet, or another part of your body? Maybe you would feel like an object, right? It's like recognizing that you have a face too ugly to be a model, but as for your feet ... they are magnificent! Somewhat discouraging. Of course, if you manage to belong to a good agency, you can earn enough money .

9. Cruise ship leader

Do you have a clown soul? This may be your opportunity. The cruise entertainers spend the day cheering up, proposing games and fun activities. For retirees, of course. This includes playing bingo, ballroom dancing, monologues a bit old fashioned ... But if you like the idea, you have to know that they can charge more than € 3,000 per month . Not bad.

10. Notary

For some it is the perfect job: you put a signature in a document and you take a good pasture . It is true, but what is not usually known is that notaries have had to study a lot, very much, in order to get there. Although the salary compensates, only a select few with a lot of will power can aspire to throw those "gold signatures".

More rare jobs with indecent salaries

There are many more strange jobs with scandal wages. Do you know any that we have left? You can leave it in writing by commenting on the web or on our social networks.
