18 High-paying Jobs That Allow Work Flexibility

2017/02/08 Comments off

Engineers Get Fat StacksSpoiler Alert: Earn an Engineering Degree. Yep, that’s right, Engineers always top every list of the highest-paying jobs. A Bachelor’s Degree in most fields won’t put you into the tax bracket that Engineering ones do. A degree in Engineering starts off with a higher salary, grows faster, and has more potential for upward mobility than any other. I’m sorry, but it’s true. I attended Texas A&M University in College Station, Texas and it’s a heavy Engineering school and the prevailing joke, at the time, was, “What do you call an Aggie Engineer five years after graduation?” “Boss.”lexjob’s 18 Highest-Paying Bachelor’s Degrees with Flexible Jobs.

The 18 Highest-Paying Bachelor’s Degrees with Flexible Jobs.

It’s true that Engineers enjoy the fastest career growth curve of any profession. They’re respected in the workforce and they make the big bucks. I’ve personally never seen a poor Engineer or an Engineer that’s unemployed. They always have jobs. They always have good jobs, even in economic downturns. So, take the hint and get that Engineering degree.

A lot of students are afraid of pursuing Engineering degrees because of the math requirements, such as Calculus, Differential Equations, and other advanced math courses. My suggestion is to take some remedial math courses so that you begin to understand the concepts and the possibilities that advanced mathematics holds. I personally loved Calculus but struggled with Algebra, Geometry, and Trigonometry. Calculus is where I should have started. Unfortunately, the school system wasn’t setup for me. By the time I was first exposed to Calculus, I was in college and really scared of the requirement to take a full year of it. I made an ‘A’ in both semesters and then considered a degree in Mathematics. It was the opening of a whole new world to me.

Take a look at the 18 jobs, mostly Engineering gigs, that not only are the highest-paying but also have flexibility.

Zip, the free Question Answer App for iOS and Android, is raising a lot of questions where employment is concerned, with surprising statistics pouring in from every corner of the United States.
The app, which functions as a completely anonymous polling platform, allows users to pose opinion-based questions and get real-time answers in seconds. Their latest series of puzzlers is focused on the perspective of the modern job seeker concerning their confidence in the hiring process, trends in the current job market, and the lengths they’ll go to get a job.
According to Zip, nearly 70% of job seekers see having a degree and gaining an internship as necessities to landing their ideal job. The rising cost of college tuition is placing the emphasis less on name dropping and more on experience.
If I want to get a higher paying job, should I go to a more expensive college?
32% answered – Yes, more connections
68% answered – No, any degree counts
Are internships necessary?
31% answered – Nah, you’ll be fine
69% answered – Yes, you need experience
Modern technology is also playing a key role in their decision making, with 50% of job seekers seeing the tech industry as the place to be. This, along with high unemployment rates, is motivating them to make a move.
With the growth of the tech industry, would you take a tech related job or something else?
51% answered – Silicon Valley for me!
49% answered – I’m no techie
Would you move for a job?
74% answered – I’d risk it
26% answered – No, staying put
Technology isn’t just changing the types of work that are available; it’s changing how people work. More people are able and willing to work remotely, but what’s surprising here is that only 62% want to make the leap into a home office.
Do you wish you worked from home?
62% answered – Yes! PJ’s and all
38% answered – No, I need office space
Their views on the current state of the market aren’t all that optimistic. The political climate, availability of higher paying tech jobs, and the switch to more remote positions, have many hoping for changes in the future.
