Redditors who say they make over $100,000 without being 'killed' by stress are discussing the type of jobs they have


On Thursday, a Redditor asked for advice on how to earn over $100,000 without experiencing high levels of stress. The post received over 6,800 responses on the r/careerguidance subreddit and made the front page of the site. 

The Redditor shared that despite having a bachelor's degree and graduate credits, they make less than $60,000 a year in a high-cost-of-living area. They also expressed feeling overwhelmed by the stress and long hours at work. The user was identified as a learning and development specialist at a nonprofit company, a position with a median total pay of $68,337 per year according to GlassDoor. 

Many Redditors advised the poster to consider leaving the nonprofit sector due to being overworked and underpaid. Others shared that they have found high-paying jobs with less than 40 hours of work per week in various fields, including tech and project management. 

For example, one Redditor who works as a Global Campaign Manager said they only work about 20 hours per week for a take-home pay of $125,000. Another Redditor who works as a software engineer claimed to work less than 30 hours per week for a median total pay of $107,362 per year. Project management was also suggested as a high-paying field with a lot of strategy and communication involved.
