The 13 most meaningful jobs in America

teacherwoodleywonderworks/flickrNinety-one percent of kindergarten teachers consider their job to be meaningful.

If your goal in life is to make the world a better place, you should probably pursue a job in education or healthcare.

Twelve of the top 13 most meaningful jobs in America, according to PayScale, fell into one of those two categories.

To compile its latest list, PayScale asked over 2 million professionals whether their work is meaningful, and ranked almost 500 professions based on the percentage of people in each of those jobs who answered "yes."

"Many people hope to find work that they find meaningful, but the secret is that you can find purpose in a variety of professions," says Lydia Frank, senior editorial director at PayScale. "And, you don't always have to sacrifice a good paycheck in order to have a positive impact on the world."
