If you like lots of money, easy hours, prestige, contributing to society, and excellent job security, then I have the job for you. If I were to do it all over again, I'd definitely go this route. Listen carefully, one word, Allergist.
Yes, you need to go through med school, probably do some long hours in residency at mediocre pay, and accumulate some debt, but the payoff is huge. I started going to an allergist for seasonal allergies a little over a year ago and I never met a guy so happy in my life. Basically your job as an allergist is to wait for a patient to arrive, walk in, talk about politics or sports or something for 5-10 minutes, then send them back out and have a nurse run some tests. 30 minutes later you meet again and tell them: you have 3 options: avoid allergens, take antihistamines, or get shots (the latter translating to thousands of dollars more a year for no work). Regardless of the result you charge them a couple thousand dollars and then go check mountainbuzz until your next appointment.
Even better, allergies and asthma are only getting more prevalent with urbanization and pollution and people everywhere have them.
There ya go, the secret to career bliss.
Deepsouth's job doesn't seem to be too bad either - you get paid lots of money to do no work - but it leaves me somewhat unsatisfied. As an allergist you can make more money and help people out at the same time.
