Average hourly pay: $39.04

Although they work primarily with children, speech-language pathologists may also work with adults to help them overcome difficulties with speech and language processing.

4. Certified public accountant

Certified public accountants do more than prepare tax returns. They also help clients review their financial information, prepare tax and finance documents, and stay educated on changes in tax laws or government regulations. Certified public accountants may also perform audits and suggest ways to improve bookkeeping and record-keeping.

5. Registered nurse

Software engineers are different from software developers in that the engineer maps out the way the software will function. They define what the program will do and how it should perform. Software engineers work with other programmers and coders to ensure all parts of the program work together.
