In The Know breaks down three careers that best allow you to have a fulfilling life outside of work, without sacrificing your salary.
The line between work life and personal life is thinning rapidly, thanks to 24/7 connectivity through emails or internal company messaging systems, making it seem near impossible to find a well-paid career that allows you to unplug and completely disconnect after you clock out.
Sarah Stoddard, a community expert at Glassdoor, explains that while a declining work-life balance seems like the norm, this isn't true.
"Jobs in technology, business operations and marketing tend to tout strong work-life balance compared to those in other industries, which is a reflection of the high demand for this skilled talent," Stoddard said to Business Insider.
The In The Know video above highlights jobs within these industries that provide exactly that — a promise of a life outside of work, without jeopardizing salary.
Data scientists have reported high satisfaction with their work-life balance, and the median salary is $117,345. User experience design is a competitive field, but most positions ensure that you have ample time at home. The median salary is $90,967.
Good work-life balance isn't limited to tech jobs, either. Corporate recruiters round out In The Know's list, finding most people holding this position say they have a great work-life balance and net an average salary of $58,661.
As more and more skilled employees look for jobs that won't take over their personal life, employers have become more open to promising flexible working hours as a huge selling point for these competitive markets.
