professions for men and boys, good and in demand, with high salaries and other options

All about male professions

Men’s pro­fes­sions have their own specifics. These include some­times those with which a woman can not cope either phys­i­cal­ly or emo­tion­al­ly. These pro­fes­sions require endurance, strength, com­po­sure, inge­nu­ity, courage and the abil­i­ty to work in extreme sit­u­a­tions. At the same time, there are pro­fes­sions where the abil­i­ty to think ana­lyt­i­cal­ly and make quick and cor­rect deci­sions comes first.

Professions in the economic sphere

It is not uncom­mon for men to choose pro­fes­sions in the eco­nom­ic field. This makes it pos­si­ble to real­ize their math­e­mat­i­cal and ana­lyt­i­cal abil­i­ties, to achieve suc­cess in var­i­ous fields. Pro­fes­sions can be, for exam­ple:

  • econ­o­mist;
  • financier;
  • insur­ance agent;
  • real­tor;
  • banker;
  • accoun­tant;
  • audi­tor;
  • per­son­nel offi­cer, etc.

You can’t do with­out the right edu­ca­tion. Econ­o­mists make a plan to cre­ate or devel­op a busi­ness. Pre­dict his future fate. Indi­vid­ual entre­pre­neurs and heads of state pro­duc­tions must include spe­cial­ists in eco­nom­ics in their staff. An employ­ee of the eco­nom­ic sphere must have such qual­i­ties as atten­tive­ness and deep knowl­edge of eco­nom­ic laws, be able to fore­see the result of finan­cial manip­u­la­tions, pro­fes­sion­al­ly per­form finan­cial analy­sis and mar­ket­ing moves, and offer the employ­er options for trans­ac­tions involv­ing rea­son­able risks. In the work of a financier, per­son­al qual­i­ties are also impor­tant: com­mu­ni­ca­tion skills and the incli­na­tions of a psy­chol­o­gist in order to effec­tive­ly build busi­ness dia­logues.

Best of all, men ful­fill them­selves in posi­tions in the eco­nom­ic sphere due to the pecu­liar­i­ties of their mind­set. These are the so-called office spe­cial­ties, and it is nev­er too late to mas­ter them, even at the age of 30–35.

In the field of the Ministry of Emergency Situations and the FSB

There are pro­fes­sions that attract boys much more, since they involve in many cas­es the pro­tec­tion of Rus­sia and its cit­i­zens.


Today, fire­fight­ers are equipped with spe­cial equip­ment that allows them to quick­ly extin­guish the fire and reach the upper floors of high-rise build­ings. They have the appro­pri­ate out­fit and equip­ment: over­alls made of fire­proof fab­ric, fire masks, com­mu­ni­ca­tions equip­ment and oth­er nec­es­sary things.

The choice of the pro­fes­sion of a fire­fight­er should be tak­en seri­ous­ly. From the out­side, it seems roman­tic, hero­ic. But you need to know some of the nuances.

  • The pro­fes­sion is fraught with risk and injury. Ner­vous over­strain due to dif­fi­cult extreme sit­u­a­tions is not ruled out.
  • In addi­tion, the work­ing day not lim­it­ed by sched­ule. A fire­fight­er must always come to the scene of a fire when called.
  • The fire­fight­er must be phys­i­cal­ly devel­oped, hardy. Reg­u­lar train­ing is required.

If a man con­scious­ly choos­es this pro­fes­sion, then he is an indif­fer­ent coura­geous per­son. It lives the desire to help and save.


Every man has a pro­tec­tive instinct. War, bat­tles are the lot of the strong half. Now the army has an exten­sive struc­ture with many mil­i­tary pro­fes­sions. Basi­cal­ly, they are asso­ci­at­ed with the branch­es of the mil­i­tary: pilots, mis­sile­men, tankers, sig­nal­men, etc. Depend­ing on edu­ca­tion and ser­vice life, appro­pri­ate ranks are assigned, for exam­ple, lieu­tenant or major. Recent­ly, ser­vice under a con­tract has become pop­u­lar, which is con­clud­ed for a cer­tain time, and then can be extend­ed. But even for this time, the employ­ee swears alle­giance to the Moth­er­land and lives strict­ly accord­ing to the char­ter. In fact, the mil­i­tary does not belong to him­self. All his actions are dic­tat­ed by con­di­tions, sit­u­a­tions, sub­or­di­na­tion.

The mil­i­tary is ful­ly sup­port­ed by the state. This includes the pro­vi­sion of hous­ing if need­ed. But the mil­i­tary can­not choose where to live. On the first order, he must move to a new duty sta­tion.

A mil­i­tary man must be a true patri­ot of his coun­try, have the will and obey orders. The fol­low­ing qual­i­ties are essen­tial:

  • brav­ery;
  • deter­mi­na­tion;
  • ded­i­ca­tion;
  • capac­i­ty for hero­ic deeds.

The pro­fes­sion involves a will­ing­ness to over­come dif­fi­cul­ties. The defense capa­bil­i­ty of the state depends on the activ­i­ties of the mil­i­tary.


Peo­ple of the Min­istry of Emer­gency Sit­u­a­tions are the first to come to the res­cue in nat­ur­al and man-made dis­as­ters, in severe acci­dents, ter­ror­ist attacks and in oth­er sit­u­a­tions. In the per­for­mance of their pro­fes­sion­al duties, they con­stant­ly take risks to save oth­ers.

The res­cuer must have a lot of knowl­edge and skills:

  • be a fire­fight­er;
  • be able to dive under water, be a div­er;
  • know the basics of first aid;
  • not be afraid of heights — to be both a climber and a climber;
  • have a dri­ver’s license and skill­ful­ly dri­ve vehi­cles;
  • be able to train a search dog;
  • read the map well;
  • under­stand elec­tri­cal appli­ances.

And this is not the whole list. Some­times there are sit­u­a­tions that require an instant reac­tion and a quick way out of it. You also need to have oth­er skills.

Employ­ees of the Min­istry of Emer­gency Sit­u­a­tions res­cue peo­ple from the rub­ble after an explo­sion or earth­quake. Help to get out of the place of igni­tion in case of fires. Search teams are look­ing for miss­ing peo­ple in the sea, forests, moun­tains. Flood evac­u­a­tion. There are liq­uida­tors of chem­i­cal and radioac­tive pol­lu­tion. This hap­pens dur­ing indus­tri­al acci­dents.

The life­guard’s respon­si­bil­i­ties include:

  • respond quick­ly to an alarm in case of an emer­gency;
  • arrive at the des­ti­na­tion on time;
  • to help peo­ple in need;
  • take part in the elim­i­na­tion of dan­ger­ous sit­u­a­tions and elim­i­nate their con­se­quences;
  • keep spe­cial equip­ment and equip­ment in readi­ness;
  • observe safe­ty at work.

These duties are per­formed both at the loca­tion of the base and on the road.

Any man who is in good health and has the appro­pri­ate phys­i­cal train­ing can become a life­guard. It is impor­tant for him to be deci­sive and coura­geous, as well as men­tal­ly bal­anced. A rep­re­sen­ta­tive of this pro­fes­sion always needs to quick­ly assess the sit­u­a­tion and act accord­ing­ly, be able to work in a team.


Some­times men choose to work in the FSB sys­tem. Employ­ees can be both mil­i­tary and civil­ians. Phys­i­cal train­ing should be at the high­est lev­el. This is a must for every­one. In the process of study­ing at high­er edu­ca­tion­al insti­tu­tions, future FSB offi­cers receive knowl­edge from var­i­ous areas, includ­ing:

  • secu­ri­ty of tele­vi­sion and auto­mat­ed com­mu­ni­ca­tions;
  • secu­ri­ty of the ana­lyt­i­cal sys­tem;
  • com­put­er sys­tem secu­ri­ty;
  • cryp­tog­ra­phy;
  • ways to counter tech­ni­cal intel­li­gence;
  • jurispru­dence relat­ed to nation­al secu­ri­ty;
  • trans­la­tion stud­ies.

Ser­vice offi­cers in the FSB is asso­ci­at­ed with intel­li­gence activ­i­ties, the fight against ter­ror­ism, with the bor­der ser­vice, and infor­ma­tion secu­ri­ty. The struc­ture of the FSB is branched. It includes many depart­ments. Hence the long list of spe­cial­ties. For exam­ple, a scout. The pro­fes­sion is often asso­ci­at­ed with fron­tier activ­i­ties. The task of the intel­li­gence offi­cer is to obtain, process and trans­mit secret infor­ma­tion.

Coun­ter­in­tel­li­gence pro­vide infor­ma­tion to employ­ees from the inves­tiga­tive and oper­a­tional depart­ments, as well as fore­stall the activ­i­ties of intel­li­gence agents of the oppo­site side. At the same time, nar­row­ly focused spe­cial­ties are also present in the struc­ture: elec­tron­ics engi­neers, econ­o­mists, psy­chol­o­gists, inves­ti­ga­tors, engi­neers, cryp­tog­ra­phers, etc. There are also law enforce­ment agen­cies for spe­cial oper­a­tions. These are Vym­pel and Alpha.

In order to become a mem­ber of these units, you must serve in the army, be able to han­dle weapons, and have excel­lent phys­i­cal fit­ness.

Ser­vice in the FSB is accom­pa­nied by a num­ber of advan­tages:

  • you can get an excel­lent edu­ca­tion that ordi­nary uni­ver­si­ties do not pro­vide;
  • achieve high career suc­cess;
  • be part of the elite pow­er struc­tures;
  • have a high salary.

At the same time, the FSB offi­cer must under­stand the full respon­si­bil­i­ty that is entrust­ed to him. This is the obser­vance of secre­cy, and the need to risk life in cer­tain risk sit­u­a­tions. Emo­tion­al and phys­i­cal stress are con­stant com­pan­ions of work in the FSB. You need to be ready for this. Not every­one can enter the FSB sys­tem. A care­ful selec­tion is being made. A man must be healthy both phys­i­cal­ly and men­tal­ly. Have a high­er edu­ca­tion and be a patri­ot and cit­i­zen of your coun­try. Real­is­ti­cal­ly assess the respon­si­bil­i­ty that is assigned to him.

The Min­istry of Inter­nal Affairs is respon­si­ble for order and tran­quil­i­ty with­in the coun­try. Police offi­cers serve in this para­mil­i­tary struc­ture. The Min­istry of Inter­nal Affairs includes var­i­ous depart­ments, for exam­ple, the depart­ment for com­bat­ing eco­nom­ic crimes, the drug con­trol ser­vice, the depart­ment for solv­ing espe­cial­ly seri­ous crimes, etc. Detec­tives, dis­trict police offi­cers, and inves­ti­ga­tors work here. To become a spe­cial­ist in any of the areas, you need to grad­u­ate from a law school and be ready to devote a lot of time to work. This type of activ­i­ty is asso­ci­at­ed with risk, the abil­i­ty to think ana­lyt­i­cal­ly, make deci­sions quick­ly, and act accord­ing to the sit­u­a­tion. Good phys­i­cal prepa­ra­tion is also nec­es­sary for employ­ees of the Min­istry of Inter­nal Affairs. There is an oppor­tu­ni­ty for career growth, the detec­tive always has a chance to become a good inves­ti­ga­tor. An inves­ti­ga­tor may head a depart­ment in the police or pros­e­cu­tor’s office, etc.

Required working professions


Now a min­er is not a work­er with a pick in his hands. The pro­fes­sion involves the use of var­i­ous kinds of equip­ment and devices. There­fore, the con­cept of “min­er” is a col­lec­tive, gen­er­al­ized one. The name of the min­ing pro­fes­sion depends on the type of equip­ment the work­er spe­cial­izes in. And there are many. To get a nar­row min­ing spe­cial­ty, you still have to learn. For exam­ple, get a license to dri­ve trucks or main­tain a winch lift. Min­ers work not only deep in the face, but also on the sur­face, per­form­ing aux­il­iary func­tions, for exam­ple, min­ers, machin­ists, etc.

The pro­fes­sion is high­ly paid com­pared to oth­ers. But the mon­ey side of the coin also requires spe­cial qual­i­ties:

  • do not suf­fer from claus­tro­pho­bia, because you will have to be under­ground for a long time;
  • have reac­tive think­ing — make quick deci­sions in emer­gency sit­u­a­tions;
  • have phys­i­cal strength and endurance.

Min­ers extract not only coal, but also oth­er min­er­als of strate­gic impor­tance. The min­ing pro­fes­sion is dan­ger­ous not only for life, but also for health. Coal dust and gas­es after the explo­sion of ore can affect the lungs. The loud noise of the work­ing equip­ment affects hear­ing.

Mod­ern mines are equipped so that the risk of acci­dents is reduced to a min­i­mum. But still they hap­pen. This is a col­lapse of a mine shaft or ground­wa­ter break­throughs, which can lead to flood­ing. Now this rarely hap­pens. The work is hard, “dirty”, but there is a big plus. It lies in the fact that this is the high­est paid work­ing pro­fes­sion.


The welder must be flu­ent in his spe­cial­ty. Mis­takes can lead to dis­as­ter if the met­al parts of the object con­nect­ed by it come apart at the seam dur­ing oper­a­tion. Welders receive a nar­row spe­cial­iza­tion, depend­ing on which machine they work with. There are elec­tric, gas, auto­mat­ic. If the work­er has mas­tered all these devices, then this is already a sta­tion wag­on.

The work­ers are equipped. It pro­tects a per­son from fiery sparks and bright flash­es. Welders are in demand at fac­to­ries, fac­to­ries and oth­er orga­ni­za­tions in the indus­tri­al sec­tor. This is a sought after pro­fes­sion. Employ­ers are look­ing to get high­ly qual­i­fied spe­cial­ist. But even begin­ners are easy to get a job.

Salary depends on the class of skill, on the com­plex­i­ty and vol­ume of work.


The truck­er spends all his work­ing time on the road. Depend­ing on the route — from a day to sev­er­al days. The pro­fes­sion is attrac­tive because demand­ed, well paid. Spe­cial edu­ca­tion is not required, it is enough to have a dri­ver’s license, be able to dri­ve cars of dif­fer­ent brands. How­ev­er, there are also dif­fi­cul­ties.

A truck dri­ver is always at risk of get­ting into an acci­dent. Dri­vers often suf­fer from back prob­lems, because they spend most of their time sit­ting and expe­ri­ence emo­tion­al over­strain. The dri­ver is respon­si­ble for the car­go that he was entrust­ed to trans­port. There­fore, he must strict­ly fol­low the con­di­tions put for­ward by the employ­er.

car mechanic

A car mechan­ic, or auto mechan­ic, repairs and main­tains cars. The pro­fes­sion is the most pop­u­lar, because every third per­son has a car, and trans­port often breaks down for var­i­ous rea­sons. Work is not lim­it­ed to repair and main­te­nance. Some­times you have to com­plete­ly restore trans­port. Auto mechan­ics some­times act as con­sul­tants when buy­ing a car. The income is good and con­stant. It all depends on the skill lev­el.


Work­ing pro­fes­sions are those that are asso­ci­at­ed with phys­i­cal labor. They are for men. To mas­ter them, you need get an edu­ca­tion in a school or tech­ni­cal school, where most of the time you have to prac­tice. Espe­cial­ly men’s are a brick­lay­er, a black­smith, a machin­ist, an installer, a plumber, a car­pen­ter, etc.

Specialties in Aviation

An air­port is more than just a run­way. It is also an exten­sive struc­ture, which includes main­te­nance of air­craft, the cre­ation of con­di­tions for safe flights, and ser­vice. Women also work in avi­a­tion, but there are pro­fes­sions where men are indis­pens­able.

First of all, these are pilots. The pro­fes­sion is roman­tic, but fraught with risk, has its own dif­fi­cul­ties.

  • Pilot must be high­ly edu­cat­ed, well versed in the design of the air­craft, pos­sess the skills of han­dling high-tech equip­ment.
  • Air­craft tech­ni­cian prepar­ing the plane for flight. Trou­bleshoots, checks the reli­a­bil­i­ty of all com­po­nents of the air­craft. Flight safe­ty large­ly depends on it.
  • Air traf­fic con­troller main­tains con­stant com­mu­ni­ca­tion with the pilot, cor­rects his work. His mis­take can turn into a cat­a­stro­phe, which will entail vic­tims. The pro­fes­sion requires iron psy­cho-emo­tion­al endurance.

Sports-related professions

Sports pro­fes­sions are rep­re­sent­ed by a wide range. It:

  • sports equip­ment main­te­nance engi­neer;
  • adap­tive phys­i­cal edu­ca­tion instruc­tor;
  • moun­taineer­ing instruc­tor;
  • anti-dop­ing spe­cial­ist;
  • sports man­ag­er;
  • phys­i­cal edu­ca­tion teacher in edu­ca­tion­al insti­tu­tions, etc.

Pro­fes­sions relat­ed to sports are aimed at improv­ing health, devel­op­ing phys­i­cal indi­ca­tors, acquir­ing skills (moun­taineer­ing, sports tourism, etc.), achiev­ing sports suc­cess, as well as main­tain­ing sports facil­i­ties and equip­ment, etc. The most pop­u­lar and demand­ed pro­fes­sion is a coach. He can train both pro­fes­sion­al ath­letes and chil­dren in var­i­ous sec­tions. Most often, this is a per­son who has achieved cer­tain heights in a par­tic­u­lar sport.

There is a cat­e­go­ry — pro­fes­sion­al ath­letes. This is no longer just a hob­by, but a spe­cial­iza­tion. The ath­lete must be dis­ci­plined, strict­ly observe the reg­i­men estab­lished by the coach, effi­cient, phys­i­cal­ly endur­ing. Ath­letes are served by doc­tors, masseurs, tai­lors, nutri­tion­ists, etc. Both men and women can mas­ter these pro­fes­sions.

Selection Guide

For men who are edu­cat­ed and want to make a career, it is best to asso­ciate their activ­i­ties with the army, the struc­tures of the Min­istry of Inter­nal Affairs, the Fed­er­al Secu­ri­ty Ser­vice, and the Min­istry of Emer­gen­cies.

If there is no oppor­tu­ni­ty or desire to get an edu­ca­tion, then you will have to choose work­ing pro­fes­sions. The high­est paid are min­ers and welders. They are also pro­vid­ed with ben­e­fits relat­ed to the harm­ful­ness of work.

Men have a wider field of choice of pro­fes­sions. This is due to nat­ur­al data: phys­i­cal strength, emo­tion­al endurance, male men­tal­i­ty. There­fore, men can choose work asso­ci­at­ed with both phys­i­cal and intel­lec­tu­al work.
