Top Ten Jobs: 2. College Professor

A college professor is considered to be the second best of the Top 50 Jobs in America according to the study jointly done by MONEY Magazine and This fact certainly dispels the not so complimentary adage that “those who don’t do, teach”. The article goes on to explain the reasoning and perks of this position, “Why it’s great: While competition for tenure-track jobs will always be stiff, enrollment is rising in professional programs, community colleges and technical schools — which means higher demand for faculty. It’s easier to break in at this level, and often you can teach with a master’s and professional experience. Demand is especially strong in fields that compete with the private sector (health science and business, for example). The category includes moonlighting adjuncts, graduate TAs and college administrators.” College Professors usually have at least a Master’s or professional degree or a Ph.D. and a university presidents’ salary can exceed $550,000.
