Perhaps this is because they're not the most glamorous professions or they don't seem exciting. Or maybe it's because they haven't always been associated with fat paychecks and phenomenal growth opportunities. But, if you're looking to change careers, you could be doing yourself a huge disservice by failing to consider these jobs.
To identify which professions are most underrated in the US right now, researchers from job site CareerCast.com analyzed BLS data and used their own judgment to determine high-paying, low-stress jobs with strong employment outlooks that are also undervalued.
"I'd attribute some of these careers as being underrated to just a lack of awareness about what goes into the field, and how to get started," says Kyle Kensing, CareerCast.com's online content editor.
