The Top 10 Jobs With the Highest Satisfaction

Many times, when evaluating a new job opportunity, people tend to focus on factors such as salary and benefits. However, just as important (if not more so!) is how satisfied you’ll be in the position. But which jobs tend to lead to the greatest satisfaction? Using Glassdoor data, we were able to identify the top 20.
“The good news for job seekers is that jobs with high levels of satisfaction can be found in a wide variety of industries and seniority levels. As a result, these roles are well-suited for many different types of people,” said Economic Research Analyst Amanda Stansell.
Even more good news? “We’ve found that job satisfaction doesn’t have to come at a financial cost — the majority of these positions pay well above the U.S. median base pay,” Stansell added.
