Lobbyist

Well we all know no one sees lobbyist as a great job in a society and it many became true after Jack Abramoff scandal broke out but financially and politically it is very good job. Good thing about lobbying is you can earn big amount of money legally. Main key is a relation in this job sector. You should have good relation with politicians to be successful in this job.
Lobbying is not an easy job mainly if you are shy or not good in public communication. Persuasion is a great "weapon" on lobbying. Most of the lobbyist is lawyer or ex politician. There are many well-known politicians who became lobbyist after they retire from politics. It’s not unusual for congressman becoming lobbyist after they retire from politics. There are some key players in lobbying in United States like: Patton Boggs, Akin Gump.

Some tips for lobbyist:
1. Don’t be stupid: People when see money they start became stupid. If you are one of the people who cannot handle your emotion after you see money then this is not a job for you.

2. Realize everyone have limits: After you earn money realize that you have limits. If you forget that you have limits on life your situation will be same like Jack Abramoff.

3. Know politics: If you don’t know "game of politics" doesn’t even think about this career. This career depends on how well you know politics. If you know game of politics you may prosper in this career.

4. Know public relation: If you don’t know how to make public relation go and take some classes. You have to be expert in making deals. If you cannot make deals you will stuck being lobbyist for a firm who don’t have even one "relation" inside Washington.

5. Don't expect quick career success: Let me give you general scenario how you can be lobbyist:
Pass High School
Get bachelor's degree in public relations or political science.
Work as intern for about year (usually not paid)
Work on campaign related job.
Work as some lobbyist assistant for some years
Finally you are lobbyist

Travel Writer

As it says itself  Travel Writer. They travel for writing. Sounds fun huh? but its not easy as it sounds. Its very hard to get this job mainly while publishing. Its so hard to some write they cant even make enough money to live on. Only pro writers can make enough money to make living with travel writing. First let me make it clear that this job is hard unless you good in English ( or language you are writing book or article on). I hear sometimes people saying that all of your expense will be covered when you are going for writing and guess what it a myth. Even if your 75% of expense is covered, you are lucky. In bottom line if you want to make money this not your job.
If you want to be travel writer then.
First i would suggest making nice relation with people. This is one of the good site for it http://www.travelwriters.com/ (believe me i am not being paid for it i am keeping this just for your help)

Flight Attendants

When we take flights, we dont meet lots of people, one of the main person we meet inside plane is flight attendant. They are the face of airlines company. This job is not glamorous as it shows on TV or movies. In this job most of your time will be spend on air not land. Well we all know about the plane crashes and other problems so we all know about that there is a big risk on this job.
According to BLS
  " Because airlines operate around the clock and year round, flight attendants can work nights, holidays, and weekends. In most cases, agreements between the airline and the employees' union determine the total daily and monthly working time. Scheduled on-duty time usually is limited to 12 hours per day, however flight attendants can be scheduled up to 14 hours per day, with somewhat greater maximums for international flying. The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) requires that flight attendants receive 9 consecutive hours of rest following any duty period."
Most of the Flight Attendent have high school diploma but nowdays some flight companies ask for associate degreee. If you want to be sucessful and promoted that i would suggest at leat assoicate degreee. Airlines companies perfer degree associated with public speaking because you will be in touch with public all the time.
Collest thing about this job is you can travel on free. Maybe beacuse there is lots of competation on this job.
According to BLS
 " Median annual wages of flight attendants were $35,930 in May 2008. The middle 50 percent earned between $28,420 and $49,910. The lowest 10 percent earned less than $20,580, and the highest 10 percent earned more than $65,350. "

Police

As we all know police job is very hard and dangerous. You have to be careful every moment when you are police. Police job is not so glamarous as we see in movie.
Police job requries at least high school or GED ( in some states you need associates degree ). I personally would suggest to go to college because it will help you to get pormoted easily. Education is not the only factors that make you pormoted but it is one the primary one. Like if you want to be captain you have to have college degree ( in most states ).
Some Tips
When doing police job you may need to move away from your family (mainly if you live in very rural area ).
Police are widely said to be one of the respected job ( i wont guarantee that if you are in highway patrol and stopped someone drunk )
Again Its very stressful and dangerous job.( I am sure anyone understand how stressful you will be if you are in shootout )
You have to be US citizen in most states. ( Personally Alaska is the only state i know who accepts legal resident )

I got most of the above info from BLS website
