Hate math? No biggie.

Are you a high school, college student, or a full-grown adult trying to figure out what you want to do with your life? Does just the thought of solving math problems make you break out in a cold sweat? Contrary to popular belief, all of that's totally okay!

First of all, know you're not alone. Second, take a deep breath and rest assured that there are SO many exciting, lucrative, and high-paying careers that don't require Idahoans to be math whizzes! 

The creative career fields are calling!

If you're a creative soul, why not monetize your affinity for the arts?!

Fields like marketing, content creation, graphic design, and film and music production could be perfect fits for you. Creative careers give you room and space to express yourself. They're outlets that allow you to engage with audiences and followers in ways other professions don't.

Now, more than ever, creative minds have more employment options. The dawning of the digital age has opened up countless opportunities where creatives can shine and make good money without having to live off Ramen.

Have a knack for understanding and connecting with people? Awesome!

Social work, human resources, counseling, advertising, and education could be your calling. Why? These careers rely heavily on empathy, communication, interpersonal skills, and the ability to read a room or a group of people as opposed to algebra, calculus, or rigid statistics.

If you love helping people, these career fields can be incredibly rewarding on both personal and financial levels. If you're a wordsmith or a natural orator, you may even consider becoming an attorney, paralegal, or a public relations specialist.

Are you an adult ISO of a second act?

If you're all grown up and still don't know what you want to be, welcome to the club! Many Idahoans have pursued a career change after years of working in fields that didn't suit them or were less than fulfilling.

Real estate, project management, entrepreneurship, and freelance creative work can be fulfilling, light on math, and pay well. The key is remembering that successful careers aren't about fitting into a mold. They're about highlighting and leveraging your strengths and ingenuity! Math might not be your jam, but that's not the end-all-be-all when it comes to securing high-paying, rewarding work.

So, get out there! Find your passion and rock it. The jobs in the gallery below are 13 stunning examples of careers where Idaho creatives thrive.
