21. I don’t know if this was already said, but locomotive engineer. Besides communicating with your crew (your conductor), you don’t need to speak much at all. It also pays very well (in the US it’s about 6 figures once established).
22. If you’re in California, I’d say a legal cannabis gardener. Just be aware: entering into this field can limit your options if you choose to leave.
23. I’m a plumbing apprentice (service focus, we don’t do new construction) and over 70% of my day is spent driving to jobs since our company services 100 miles in each direction from our shop.
While this amount of driving is mostly contributed to the fact that I live in sparsely populated SE Idaho; it’s great being able to drive to jobs and just get some alone time. I’m an introvert and don’t like talking to people but I thrive in this job.
Not only do plumbers have a great paying job and excellent career path- but they are at zero risk of being replaced by automation. I can’t express how under- appreciated the trades are.
