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.
