Don’t Be A Scrooge! The Top 7 Best-Paying Jobs In Consumer Services

What do you think of when you hear the phrase best-paying jobs in consumer services? Does it conjure up images of drug dealers, con artists, or other unsavory types? Well, we’re here to tell you that while these people may be getting paid,

they aren’t the highest earners in consumer services! In fact, some are paying their way through college by working hard at these jobs and doing honest work that benefits the world at large. On the following pages, we’ll show you seven of the best paying jobs in consumer services.

Telemarketer

Even though most people would think gosh, that’s such a low paying job, I promise you it can be a very lucrative and rewarding career if you know how to do it right.

You need to know how to get people on board with your company (or for yourself) with enthusiasm so that they buy whatever you’re selling.

Claims Examiner

$56,310 Pay: One of only two claims positions in our list of top-paying jobs that require at least a high school diploma, claims examiners look over insurance claims to make sure they’re accurate and no wrongdoing has occurred.

To do so, they’ll typically inspect paperwork, collect documents and meet with other experts as needed. You may need specialized training for your specific role within a company; most examiners are required to have at least an associate’s degree in civil law or accounting before getting hired.

The good news is that you won’t be working on commission here — you’ll receive a salary instead. Claims examiner jobs tend to be fairly steady and consistent, making them perfect for people who want more stability than what you’d find in sales or marketing.

Plus, according to the BLS, workers in claims examiner roles will experience above-average growth from 2012 through 2022 (12 percent).

Paralegal Assistant

Earn an average of $50,120 a year in a career with excellent job security. (Bureau of Labor Statistics) Paralegals help attorneys during all phases of legal work.

Paralegals often review documents, conduct research and perform administrative tasks on behalf of their employer. Most paralegals work full time, although part-time positions are available in some industries.

Market Research Analyst

Make $72,000/yr. in America’s Heartland. As a market research analyst, you’ll take a crucial role in finding out what Americans want (as well as what they don’t) and where they’re going to get it.

Many positions require a bachelor’s degree in economics or business; those jobs typically pay up to $80,000 per year—but some call for graduate degrees that can lead to six-figure salaries.

Personal Shopper

Earn $30,000 – $75,000 a year. Work at home or in a shop—either way you’ll help customers find just what they’re looking for.

Sounds like Christmas, right? You may be contacting customers by phone or e-mail or arranging purchases and deliveries by hand, but you can control your schedule around other obligations.

Business Process Analyst

These highly skilled professionals work to help optimize a company’s operations, ensuring efficiency and accuracy in how each process is completed.

Business process analysts are high-earners with great prospects, too—the BLS forecasts that business analyst jobs will grow 15% by 2022. (Read more.)
