According to, "Career Trek is ideal for comparison shopping. For example, I can see that clinical counselling is rewarding and flexible, but the pay isn’t spectacular at $33k to $44k per year. A sales coordinator typically gets paid better ($66k to $95k), but the video suggests the hours are more demanding."  Fantastic resource!
