    Default Are there jobs out there that pay well, are easy to get in to, but that nobody wants?

    Are there jobs out there that pay well, are easy to get in to, but that nobody wants? I'm thinking if I find something like that, it will be the ultimate security. Even though most people do pretty much everything better than me, I've found I'm usually willing to slog through and do the things people don't like to do. Now, almost 13/hour isn't bad, but I'm wondering if there is anything that pays better that is so unpleasant I might be one of the few people to do it?

    The first idea that strikes me is dog walking. By walking peoples dogs you can earn decent money and you just need a pair of legs basically. Another option is to house sit for someone while they are away. Truck driver is another easy job that requires no qualifications as far as I know and is perfect for an introvert like yourself as you can just drive and not have to speak to people for hours on end. (Is the teaching job you wanted not panning out well?)
    The imagination is one of the greater tools to help people with. When people are down give them a rocket boost to overcome the gravity of depression. Some have Jupiter levels of depression gravity and others just an atoms gravity but keep giving the imagination fuel, Watch out for the self-destruction button though

    No, I dumped a whole lot of money into training for it, and its just not a fit. No job really is, but I'm still willing to do anything legal, if only just the bare minimum to scrape by so I can get back to doing things I actually like, such as sitting on the porch, meditating, or driving places I haven't been before. Basically, I like variety within the limits of having to do more or less the same thing everyday. So variety, but still not much variety, since work is only an income to me, in the end. I'm solidly mediocre on pretty much everything, but I'm persistent, and given enough time and freedom to complete a task, it will be done well. I avoid competition when I can, since it flusters me and I tend to do worse if I know I'm having to outmatch somebody else. I mentioned Truck Driver to my mom, but she said I would be worse at that than when I tried Nursing. She said if I didn't want to do Teaching, to do Social Work. I don't see myself doing too well at social work, because I'm always just wanting to get the job done so I have free time. I could put on a friendly mask like I do as a pharmacy technician, but that gets exhausting after a while. Of course, I'm afraid to do anything TOO repetitive, because robots will eventually take those jobs over.

    The best I can say about teaching is that I believe, in the most general sense, that an educated populace is a generally good idea.

    Yeah, Truck Driving is the worst if you want free time. Judging by what you are looking for, self-employment is the only certain option. The jobs that pay well that no one wants to do are often "in the shadows" in that they are not well known (i.e. working on oil rig, sewer worker, etc.). But I'm missing the main point. What do you like to do the most? What are your interests?

    I like long naps in the forest, taking walks around town, and daydreaming. I also really enjoy eating at buffets.

    Look into industry jobs that don't require a degree: lab technicians, field technicians, plant operators, logistics, scheduling, etc. I work in oil and gas but mining companies, pharmaceutical, petrochemical plants, etc. all need these kinds of workers and from what I know most companies in the U.S. don't ask for a degree, it's just a matter of being in the right place when they need those workers. It depends where you are located and what you're interested in, but if you're in a state with heavy industry and it sounds interesting to you I would say really consider it because the money these jobs pay is ridiculous and many companies need staff to train for them. Also, these are the perfect jobs if you want to just get the job done and move on, like you mentioned.

    Hmm. I know it involves some competition but... photography?

    Maybe. I'm not sure how to get started in the field. I'm horrible at marketing things. The funny thing is that my eyes have gotten so much more nearsighted than they used to be that cameras often substitute for my eyes when I'm trying to see something far away, like across a room. My glasses keep getting thicker, but even though it should have evened out by now, they keep getting worse.

    I live in a very depressed area. I'm almost scared to leave my pharmacy technician job, since though it is a purgatory, I know my place there. I was offered to go work for the competitor for 50 cents more, but I'm too busy getting a degree I don't actually want but feel obligated to get since I got a scholarship and my mom would be disappointed.
