4. Substitute teacher
If engineering is not your thing, you can still find a career that gives you work-life balance. Substitute teachers, as the name says, perform all the regular tasks of a regular teacher, when he or she is absent. Since substitute teachers work as independent contractors, they can manage the amount of work they take on. However, it’s a pretty challenging job since they have to handle all of the classroom duties, write reports and gain the students’ trust. It has an estimated salary of $24,380 and approximate number of job openings is 590.
