5 career alternatives for those who fear cubicle life

cubicle-free careers

The 9-to-5 office job isn't for everyone. Non-stop paperwork and computer work can leave some people emotionally empty and uninspired. If you're a hands-on worker, look for jobs that play to your strengths. The following jobs often require intense physical labor, but also provide the excitement and active lifestyle you want for yourself.

Massage Therapist

If you have a sensitive touch and enjoy helping people relax, a career in message therapy may be right for you. Message therapists need a special certificate to have their own practice, but the training is relatively brief compared to other occupational training. Plus, you help connect physical and mental health for patients in a relaxed atmosphere. If you have your own practice, you also get to keep your own hours/schedule. This profession isn't only hands-on; it also promotes an active, healthy lifestyle.
Message therapists, on average, earn between $24,000 and $51,000 annually.

Landscape Architect

If you love botany and gardens, a career as a landscape architect is a grounded option that can be quite lucrative. Though work commonly comes and goes with the seasons in many climates, the hard labor involved can see you turn a nice profit. This career also encourages innovation, an eye for composition and a love for the outdoors. While this career doesn't require a degree, if you want to start your own business, an understanding or degree in business management will be useful, as would a background in accounting.
The median pay for a landscape architect is about $60,000 annually.

Crime Scene Cleaner

If you have an iron stomach and nerves of steel, a crime scene cleaner might be a fascinating job for you. Of course, this career may be more along the lines of a nightmare than a dream job, as it's packed full of blood, guts and bodily fluids. But these hardcore janitors don hazmat suits and make anywhere from $50,000 to six figures in a single year.
While your own company will make you the biggest bucks, you can make a healthy living as an employee for a cleanup firm, which will train and equip you with the knowledge you need.

Personal Trainer

A personal fitness trainer works with clients and helps them achieve their fitness goals. Whether it's their goal is to lose weight, build muscle or increase stamina, your job is to provide clients with the workout and nutritional advice that puts them on a successful fitness track. While nothing is more important for fitness than dedication, technology has also played a part in how fitness trainers measure progress. For instance, products like Fit Bit and the Apple Watch track your activity, steps taken throughout the day, your workout behavior and your sleep.
Many personal trainer certificates exist, and the courses aren't long. Fitness trainers, on average, earn $20,000 to $40,000 per year.

Registered Nurse

Few professions help people as much as registered nurses. Nurses don't only provide physical care to the sick and injured, but they also help deliver babies, provide emotional and physical support to patients and administer care.
Unemployment for nursing is an impressively low 2% and career advancement for nurses is always an option. Nurse practitioners can hold their own practices and make upward of $80,000 per year.
