This article is part of InHerSight's Finding a Job series. Discover our most popular and relevant resources for finding a job fast—at a company that cares as much about your career as you do.

We know the companies with the best employee ratings—but what about the jobs delivering the most satisfaction?

InHerSight’s list of the best companies is based on millions of anonymous ratings and reviews by women who are working at these companies or have worked there. Employees rate their experience on a scale of one to five stars, giving feedback on 18 metrics, including Salary Satisfaction and Ability to Telecommute, aka to work remotely.

We pulled the highest ratings for one of the metrics, Overall Satisfaction, and looked at the jobs those raters have to make this list of 20 of the best jobs to have right now. All data is current as of March 15, 2022.

Most of these top jobs can be found in multiple industries, and nearly all have open positions you can apply for today. (Also, you can help make this list even better—just share your experience by anonymously rating your company here.)

The best jobs to have: 20 highly ranked roles, based on employee ratings

The best jobs for helping people and customers

Talent acquisition manager

Talent acquisition managers are human resources “matchmakers.” They work with companies to help find the best candidates for open positions, and they work with job seekers to help them find roles they are a good match for. They are pros at networking and communication. For more detail on what it’s like to have this job, read our interviews with two women on their experience as talent acquisition managers.

  • Average Overall Satisfaction rating: 4.5 stars
  • Average U.S. salary: $121,405

Real estate agent

While talent acquisition managers match people with their best jobs, real estate agents match people with their best homes. This job also involves a lot of networking and communication with your clients or potential clients. It comes with flexible hours, a lot of time not having to sit at a desk, and the chance to meet a lot of people in your community.

  • Average Overall Satisfaction rating: 4.1 stars
  • Average U.S. salary: $94,031

Flight attendant

Flight attendants handle everything that happens in the airplane cabin during a flight, and we mean everything—some days it’s calming down unruly passengers, while others it’s delivering a baby mid-flight! It often requires a lot of patience, time management, and excellent customer service skills. It’s not a job for those who don’t like the unexpected or prefer to avoid high-stakes situations. 

  • Average Overall Satisfaction rating: 4.0 stars
  • Average U.S. salary: $79,472

  • Average U.S. salary: $40,369

Customer success manager

Customer success managers help customers after they’ve bought a new product like software, to make sure they’re using all the product’s features and they’re happy with their purchase. They work in B2B and B2C, looking to strengthen partnerships and keep customers happy (and returning for more products). You can read our interviews with three women on their experience as customer success managers.

  • Average U.S. salary: $68,689

Speech and language pathologist

Communications manager

Communications managers handle a company’s internal (management-to-employee) and external (company-to-public) messaging.

Sometimes the job is similar/identical to what public relations professionals do, and you can read two women’s experiences in PR here

  • Average Overall Satisfaction rating: 3.7 stars
  • Average U.S. salary: $111,770

Event manager

Event managers oversee everything associated with an “event,” whether it be a party, conference, or corporate retreat. They try to create an experience even better than what the hosts envision. They scout and book locations, handle vendor communication and hiring, work on the logistics of layout and timing and rentals. It’s a lot of planning and attention to detail—which is why event planners never seem to be far from their phones. 

  • Average Overall Satisfaction rating: 3.6 stars
  • Average U.S. salary: $100,655

The best jobs for working with numbers or getting technical

  • Average U.S. salary: $72,313

Operations analysts are problem solvers. They identify and fix issues with how a company or business operates. They use statistics, research, and modeling to find and present solutions.

  • Average Overall Satisfaction rating: 3.6 stars
  • Average U.S. salary: $63,931


If you loved science class in school, be a scientist and get paid to study what you like—human bodies, animals, Earth, space, disease… You can spend your days in a lab or in remote areas of the world, and what you discover could actually be life-changing.

  • Average Overall Satisfaction rating: 3.5 stars

Copywriters are in charge of the words in advertising and marketing material. Like marketing directors, their specific roles and compensation depend on how big the company and the advertising campaign is and how much money it brings in. Good copywriters know how to use emotions to get us to act, so they can charge a lot more when they have successful examples in their portfolios.
