For most people, a day at work is just a way of earning money so they can purchase desired luxuries in their spare time. Yet, for others, a career can mean so much more.
A career does not necessarily need to be instantly connected to a beefy salary at the end of the month; instead it can be closely connected to the emotional benefits you reap at the end of a hard day’s work.
If you would prefer to feel rewarded for the work you do, why not consider one of these inspiring careers:
The world we live in today is tough. Each day we are being told we need to change our attitudes to the way we live – we need to learn to love the earth. But who are the people telling us this?
Environmental consultants – that is who.
The role of an environmental consultant is to work on commercial or government contracts to address a variety of environment issues for their clients. These issues could involve anything, from collecting field surveys to managing pollution levels, giving world saving advice and communicating their findings with clients.
Consultants need to have a number of different skills; one of the major skills needed is to be able to let others know of the damage being done to the earth in an attempt to stop it.
Not only is the salary for this role rather high, the rewards you get from it are even better. You will know you are one of the few who are pushing for a cleaner, greener, earth.
What is possibly a more rewarding career than one where you are fighting saving lives? A fire fighters role can vary from being called out to tackle a fire the size of a city or to save a climbing cat from a tree – whatever your job is, you will be proud of yourself at the end of a working day.
Fire fighters take pride in their job and the service they provide to their country, this is because they do an amazing job.
Experienced fire fighters will often tell you how there day can vary by so much. The life of a fire fighter is completely unpredictable and can go from a mundane morning of watching the clouds go by to having a mission of saving a family from a burning high rise block of flats. Seeing the relief of the victims faces will provide you with all the rewards and satisfaction you could ever need.
Many people underestimate the role of a counselor. People tend to assume that a counselors job is to sit and listen to other people’s problems – but trust me, it is far more complicated than that.
A person who visits a counselor is there for some professional advice and guidance. A counselor can see many different people in one day, from abused and broken children, to a couple seeking marriage advice.
As there is such a wide scope of people needing advice, you will often have counselors who specify in certain areas. It is up to a counselor to delve into their client’s life to discover what underlying issues are triggering their problems.
A counselor needs to be strong minded and emotionally stable. Seeing clients problems disappear and to see them move on with their lives as normal is extremely rewarding.
