paying jobs we look at the occupations that could land you over a $40,000 a year and much,
much more. Most of these occupations you probably wouldn’t
have thought about as a career path. And hardly any would be mentioned by your
career guidance counselor, but each of these unique positions offers you a way to pay the
bills and carve out a career on a less-trodden path. Some of these occupations require formal qualifications
and others just require a desire and passion or a quirky interest. So without further ado let’s see which career

– Part 3. Number 10. Professional mermaid. A professional mermaid can earn up to $250
an hour. Not bad cash for looking beautiful inside
a mermaid suit. Qualifications include the ability to swim
and having the required look for mermaiding. Mermaiding is a relatively new profession
with some of the first professional mermaids, such as Hannah Mermaid, making a splash on
the international mermaid scene around 2004. Mermaiding is sometimes referred to water
ballet, and is not to be confused with modern synchronized swimming. No formal qualifications are required and
potential mermaids should keep in mind this is definitely not a long-term career. As mermaids age, they generally find work
more difficult to find on the open seas. Number 9. Professional psychics. $41,000. One position that seems to weather the storms
of financial insecurity is that of the supernatural fortune-teller. With no formal education or qualifications
required, you will however need to have acquired the basics of showmanship and build a following
of firm believers ready to trust your every word. Armed with a crystal ball or a set of tarot
cards you will be able to map out the future for your clients and put them at ease in times
of emotional or financial stress. With such supernatural powers at their disposal
we expect many in this profession also play the stock market on the side, and they just
keep reading fortunes for fun. Right? Number 8. Embalmer. One of the world’s oldest know professions
can see you netting $46,000 for dressing stiffs. You will be required to prepare the deceased

business. Number 7. Soil Conservationist. As an expert in turf and soil and with a median

studies and will be simply nuts about soil, mud, and the ways of land in general. Number 6. Clinical Ethicist. With an average salary of $72,385 this position
deals with contentious medical issues such as stem cell research and euthanasia. Medical issues that spill over into the political
and religious arena require independent experts to weigh up issues and provide an unbiased

some experience in a medical field will open the door to this interesting and complex position
in the medical industry. Number 5. Airplane Repo Man. From $10,000 to $100,000 per airplane can

Channel made a show about it. Airplane Repo follows the repossession agents

will drain into a feeding tube. Still interested? The operation is required in severe cases
