28. Agricultural manager
Ever since the industrial revolution all those years ago, people who work in agriculture are frowned upon. Working as an agricultural manager might involve getting your hands dirty in the beginning, but all the money flowing will make you happy. With an average median salary of $68k for entry-level agricultural managers, you can easily get paid more than you ever imagined. All you need is a degree related to agriculture, but management and trade are also desirable fields to specialize in. But what will be your duties?
An agricultural manager is tasked with keeping everything on a farm in line. Whether it’s a plant or animal farm, it is your job to check all the boxes necessary for such a facility to run smooth. This includes preparing papers and permits for inspections, buying food, refurbishing old facilities and much more. The more the success your farm has, the higher your pay will be. For those who love challenges and being in control of things, agricultural management is both an enticing and lucrative profession to be involved in.
