What jobs offer good secure financial benefits and what qualifications do you need for them?
There are SO many different career fields out there that making a list would be almost impossible.
Now, in today's financial climate, anyone and everyone is at risk because even major corporations, no matter what you do for them, are trying to file for bankruptcy. However, the best thing you could ever do to secure a good financial future for yourself is to find something that interests you, and get a degree in it.
You can find stable jobs with anything from programming, political science, adult education, computer sciences, art, biology, agriculture, management, and so on...
Also, if college isn't of any interest to you, working your way up is an option. For example, I'm working in call center right now for a satellite company in the training department. While I came straight into this department with my degree, I'd say about half of my department started with the company on the phones, in an entry-level position(basically meaning no experience or higher education required) and just worked their way up over the course of a few years.
Honestly, whatever interests you, whatever you have a passion for, just work hard and if at all possible go to school for as long as you can, and you'll always be able to find a good way to get paid for it.
Here is 2 top paying jobs I know of, they offer good financial benefits but require a lot of hard work. The best you can do for yourself is educate yourself to become a business owner or investor and get some passive income. Also try to find something that you love and do that.
Here they are:
Chartered Accountant: Requires 7 years of study (3 years for a BCom degree - the name varies on where you study,1 year honors,3 years articles - practical work)
Engineering: - a 4-5 year course of study depending on whether you get admitted
Both of the courses for these are very very tough.
