_Some of us can go through a myriad of jobs over a lifetime and finding the perfect career can be one of life's most arduous challenges. What's unfortunate is there are so many jobs available we never know about; jobs with great pay and can be tons of fun. There are many roads to success and thinking outside the box for work can lead us places we never dreamed. _

Redditor ***EduardoA96 asked for the best advice on what lesser known career paths people should know about to finance life. ***

A LITTLE CLASSICAL FINE TUNING.

Piano Tuning gets you up to $75 an hour, and there are elderly tuners literally begging to hand over full schedules of work. You can find work all over the world and don't have to do too many hours to earn a good living.

Wastewater treatment. Most people don't have any clue what happens after they flush. I never even thought about this as a career before I had a friend work here and if you can get over dealing with a slightly bad smell occasionally it's a great option. Decent starting pay ($15.21), easy enough work (I usually spend about 4-6 hours per day monitoring equipment from a computer, studying for licensing, or on Reddit like now), and finally get to utilize my biology degree after looking for something in my degree field for 5 years. I also am eligible to get 8% raises with each wastewater license I get ( D,C,B,&A). I started in May and I'm already a licensed "D" operator.

Funeral director, mortician, and embalmer. It takes very little college to become one and they pay well. Funeral directors usually even get a free house out of the deal!!

AN ACCENT IS ALWAYS WORTH THE COIN.

If you're from the UK/US, some people in China will pay you great money to babysit their kids so their kids can learn the "right" accent and manners. They'll prefer someone with a college education since it's more prestigious, and I know someone who was earning $50k straight away.
