Some of the highest paying niche jobs in the world are barely known of and may not even require a college degree. Take for example the job of a disaster insurance adjuster. These specialists, who often work as independent contractors, are ready to travel at a moment’s notice to areas that have suffered a catastrophe to examine homes and property so that insurance companies can pay out benefits. They can make over $500 a day and it only takes a few weeks training to become a catastrophe adjuster plus the right contacts.

The kinds of jobs and career ideas that are out there are nearly endless. Imagine controlling a ROV, or remote operated vehicle over two miles below you on the surface of the ocean and using robotic arms to connect up sections of pipe or do welding jobs. The starting salary for ROV operators can be as much as $400 a day and go up to well over twice that amount with several years of experience. The job of a ROV operator may take to to all parts of the world to work on interesting projects while living on a research or drilling ship. One month you might be in the South China Sea exploring a shipwreck and the next month be inspecting an underwater telecommunications cable thousands of feet below the surface of the North Atlantic.

Degree Not Always Required For The Best Kind Of High Paying Niche Jobs

Military experience or volunteer work  may be enough to allow the recruiter to justify approving your application.
