Want free career or academic advice
from a professional?

What are some jobs where I can have financial stability and still be happy?

I thought I wanted to be a writer, but then I started to realize that I won't be able to make a lot of money by doing that. Medical is also something I've considered, along with law. I also like to travel, but I'm not very outgoing.

Have an Answer?

Ever consider a career in technical writing? What I love the most about my job is that it s never the same. For the most part I work for the defense industry writing technical manuals on how to use various military technologies. One minute I could be writing a manual for a cargo plane, the next for a tactical fighter, or the next an unmanned aerial vehicle (or UAV, you can check it out on this link: http://www.insitu.com/systems/scaneagle ). The subjects of the manuals are always changing and are very exciting to work with, but for the most part it dealt with maintenance. I would have to write manuals on how to remove and install parts and components, maintain, inspect, or operate the product. The demand for writers in this field is huge and the pay is great once you acquire experience.
