Pastry Chef

Pastry chefs make between 26,000 and 50,000 dollars per year. They can work in restaurants, bakeries, specialty shops, or in-house bakeries at grocery stores. The job requires proficiency and creativity with pasties. While formal schooling isn't necessary, pastry chefs must be experienced.

Children's Librarian

Librarians working at schools or children's libraries make a yearly salary of around $35,000 per year, almost 20,000 dollars less than some full-time librarians. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, a Master's Degree in Library Science is an entry-level education for librarians, but is not always necessary.


Full-time clowns make an average salary of $38,000. However, many choose to have a full- or part-time job, and clown (clown can be a verb!) as a hobby. Clowns are responsible for capturing and holding the attention of a crowd for long periods of time.
