25 great jobs that let you have a life outside of work

Work-life balance can be hard to find, especially in the tech sector.

In most jobs, the line between work and personal life is rapidly disappearing.

Thanks to 24/7 connectivity, it’s easy to check email and put in extra hours on nights, weekends, and even during vacations, says Scott Dobroski, Glassdoor’s community expert.

“Inevitably, there are some jobs that may require more attention during and out of normal office hours,” Dobroski tells Business Insider. “Before accepting a job, job seekers should do their research to understand the hours that are expected in the role, where and how they can get their work done, and the overall nature of the job.”

Think it’s impossible to find a well-paid job that allows you a life outside of work? Think again. There are plenty, even in the tech sector. 

Glassdoor recently sifted through its data to find jobs that provide the best work-life balance. Based on employee feedback and ratings on work-life balance shared on Glassdoor over the past year, the job and employer review site rated job titles on a 5-point scale, from very dissatisfied (score of 1) to very satisfied (score of 5).

Here are the jobs employees say offer the best balance between work and personal life, as well as the average annual salary and number of job openings, according to Glassdoor.
