CBR has found some unusual job titles that could earn you over $100,000 (£61,000) a year.

Ethical Hacker

Ethical hacker

If the thought of breaking into computer systems excites you, why not use those skills in the fight for cyber security? An ethical hacker or white hat attacks a security system on behalf of its owner, looking for vulnerabilities that a malicious hacker could exploit. The job still entails the same methods used by cyber criminals but ethical hackers report the problems instead of taking advantage of them. The thrill is still there but all for a good cause, with an average salary of approximately $41,000- $114,000 a year.

Erection Engineer

Ethical engineer

As deceptive as it sounds, an erection engineer oversees the budgetary concerns, safety regulations and time management of erection projects. More specifically, you provide the cost estimation to the contractor, determine the costs of all personnel involved in executing the erection and are accountable for creating a safe environment. Average salary from about $80,000.
