7. Radiation Therapist
Want to kill cancer cells? A career in radiation therapy can give you the chance. Using machines which focus X-rays directly at the murderous cells within a cancer patient, these therapists work with oncologists and physicians to shrink those cells. Few jobs can have such a direct impact on potentially saving a person’s life.
And though a bachelor’s degree is desired in some situations, you can break into the field without one and get started with your On The Job training. Pay scales vary but according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, top earners clear over $124,000.
Working around radiation equipment all day requires taking safety precautions to limit exposure, so being diligent and focused is an important trait to possess.
