11. Event Coordinator

Median Salary: $45,260

It may sound like nonstop fun, planning parties and weddings all day – “Sorry, I’ve got a 10 a.m. appointment tasting cake” – but in fact, it’s quite grueling and high stress.

“You’re responsible for all aspects of the event, so if the weather or the food doesn’t go right, that’s on you,” Lee explained. Plus it’s competitive, which keeps salaries low, and, like psychologists, you’re also a small business owner, so you’re constantly having to look for your next client.

Oh, also, one word: Bridezillas!
