The Highest Paying Jobs in Cochise County
I had a friend who was coming out of a bitter divorce. She offered this observation, based on her current circumstance.
I married for love the first time around.
The next time I marry, it'll be for money.
It sounds a little harsh out of context, but if you're currently Unhappily Employed, you might be thinking about things the same way my friend was thinking about her relationship prospects.
Why should you spend so much of your time in a place that isn't making you happy, especially if you're not making enough money to live comfortably?
Is THIS Any Way to Spend My [Waking] Life?
Let's face it, about a third of our life is spent at work. If you're fed up with the people you work with, the hours you're working or the type of work you're doing, maybe it's time for a job change. Or even better, maybe it's time for a complete career change. You might have to get some training, but in the long run, it could be worth it.
Who Makes the Most Money?
If you're looking for a career change, this might be the best time to make that change based on a better salary in Cochise County. With the heavy influence of Fort Huachuca, we're largely centered around jobs in technology, if you're looking to make a decent salary.
