Some people believe that being rich actually makes people miserable. With the growing pile of money comes the increase in responsibilities. These beliefs led many to conclude that no job offers both high salary and happiness.
While several jobs can offer high pay, many of them are usually too stressful so employees end up unhappy despite the huge salary they receive. Other jobs, on the other hand, may be fun but the salary is not enough to cover basic necessities.
According to a report by Business Insider, CareerBliss studied several employee reviews and concluded that there are high-paying jobs that can also offer employees happiness. CareerBliss found that employees do not necessarily have to take stressful jobs that will make them unhappy in order to gain more money.
While happiness is relative and can change depending on several factors, CareerBliss had a list of factors within an office that could impact employees' happiness. Factors that were studied in order to determine the happiness levels of employees who answered the reviews include relationships within the office, workplace environment and growth opportunities, among other things.
Results from the CareerBliss study shows that job seekers who are interested in pursuing career paths that will offer both high pay and happiness should consider the following jobs: director of information technology, product manager, vice president of sales, senior manager, senior software engineer, accounting manager, business development manager and senior engineer.
Although the study found that these jobs offer both happiness and high salary, it is still up to the employee to determine if any of the jobs listed are for them. The results of the study do not necessarily mean that there will be no stress. However, employees should be able to manage stress.
For jobs that can ensure the prosperity of the world, Paste Magazine reported that job seekers must consider careers that can help achieve clean energy. Having a job should not hold you back in changing your path. Jobs & Hire previously reported that changing jobs can actually lead to a better career.
