I have a minor (yet important) character that I need to figure out an occupation for. She is relatively young, mid to late twenties. Her main role in the story is to serve as a source of envy for my main character, who is the same age but much less successful in his life. So this young woman needs to have a pretty successful professional job, probably with long hours and high stress, but very high compensation as well. She had an excellent education and got high grades in all her classes, got an entry level position in her field, and quickly rose to a higher, more prestigious position than might be usual due to her hard work, intelligence, and ability.
The problem is, I have no idea even what professional field to put her in, let alone a specific position. Any field will do, so long as it's somewhat highly respected, and is not science-related. Any ideas?
Other info: story takes place in modern day America, in an unnamed city in southwestern Ohio.
