20. Toy Designer: Around $50,000 Per Year
Many of the professions in this list aren’t even considered by young college graduates looking to make their next big move, and designing toys is another one of them. Considering that every kid plays with toys, the demand for people who make those toys isn’t going away any time soon.
That’s plus-one for job security. Sure, the technological revolution has largely wiped out the jobs of many people who physically build toys, but who is going to come up with the next Beanie Babies or Build-A-Bear? The toy industry needs creative designers to make kids happy and sell their product, so compensation is fairly decent for for those who think they have what it takes.
