Everyone is looking for the easy road to money. With all the money that graduating high school students are putting into college, you would think that road would be a little busier than it is. Unfortunately, it’s becoming harder and harder for a college graduate to gain entrance into the workforce.
There are all types of reasons why. People are living longer and having to work longer. This makes sure their jobs are occupied longer. There are a lot of traditional fields such as nursing that are experiencing shortages, but people tend to aim for fields of work that are already filled.
However, with the progress of technology and the growth in the variety of fields available, there are several other jobs you should consider giving a shot. Below are three that can make you a lot of money with very little effort.
Voice Over Artist
Can you imitate the voices of other people or cartoon characters? Can you sit on a stool and read? If you are the man or woman at parties that pulls off the crazy impersonations and gets the crowd involved, this could be a lucrative career for you.
Some companies are looking for people that can come up with their own characters and some are just as comfortable using your natural voice. A voice over artist can make up to $80,000 a year just by hanging out in a booth and reading a script in a funny voice.
Video Game Player
Understandably, there are quite a few of us that have grown up and conform to the world in the sense that we leave the video games for the kids. However, if you are honest, how many of you would quit your job right now to play video games for a living?
Several people just about tripped over their computer chair trying to get both hands and legs in the air! Of course you would! It’s fun. Who wouldn’t want to get paid for playing?
There are several online video gaming companies that will pay big bucks for you to test their latest games. Most don’t offer benefits, but you would get the chance to game test brand new titles and make around $50,000 a year doing it.
The earth has 100 females for every 107 males. There are over 7 billion people on the planet. So, that means that roughly 3,500,000,000 of them are female. If there is anything that the majority of girls enjoy, it’s jewelry. Jewels are beautiful and very valuable in and of themselves, but when you turn them into something wearable, often times they gain sentimental value.
Pieces such as engagement rings, wedding bands, mother’s necklaces, and anniversary bracelets allow people to place emotional value and memories into a tangible presence. If you are interested in being a part of that, it’s very possible to make a six-figure income.
Whatever, you choose to do, enjoying your job will make it even easier. Until then, consider these options and bring in the Benjamins!
