The Holy Grail of super day jobs: being paid to be a full time superhero! Like all things that seem too good to be true, this isn't exactly easy to get. First off, it usually requires [[SecretPublicIdentity you to give up your secret identity]], then you'll either need some government agency or corporation to sponsor you, or be brilliant enough that your grants will pay for everything. Then, be prepared to have absolutely no downtime: you'll be expected to leap into action for anything, which, if you find having a normal life as well as a super one important, might be a turn off. But, if everything goes well, you'll be living like a king doing what you would be doing anyway; you'll have ton of respect, groupies, a cool house and a ludicrous bank account that probably won't ever empty. Of course, one crisis later and you might lose it all, but, don't worry, [[StatusQuoIsGod you'll get it back... eventually]]. You'll be joining such luminaries as:

Why not burn the crimefighting candle at both ends? Join the force and protect and serve 24/7. You'll know about every criminal related thing that happens in the town, as well as people in need of rescue or strange occurrences. It's especially good if you're also a confirmed ChronicHeroSyndrome case as people in peril are just a callout away. When things get a bit too hairy, zip off (just don't let your partners see you "abandoning" them), get into the spandex suit and solve the problem with superpowers. The main problem here would be that you can't always just "zip off"; the environment's pretty restrictive, so you'd better be good at making incredibly good excuses or get used to waiting until you get home to get your superheroing on. And you should avoid getting a partner at all costs, unless it's someone you [[SecretKeeper trust.]] Can overlap with 'Career Superhero' below and SuperCop. Good examples of this would be:
