There are a lot of high level careers that, thanks to television, appear to be a really cool way to make a living. Believe me, none of those jobs are anything like they play out on TV.
For example, 'Mad Men' has really made the world of advertising look cool and glamorous. Take it from me, it's an ulcer producing, highly stressful world.
Advertising is one of those highly overrated jobs, but there are several careers out there that are vastly underrated and, best of all, they pay well.
