hope i posted that correctly.
anyway, what you will find is that any career is pretty good for a bodybuilder. you just gotta make it work. i will admit when i had a more sedentary job i did better and missed less meals etc. but you can make almost anything work.
8 time Mr.O Ronnie Coleman was a cop for 4-5 of his sandow wins i believe. Ate in his squad car, trained early in the day etc.
If you want to go to school a kiniesology degree is great for a bodybuilder or anyone who wants to make a living off of fitness. I am working on a B.S. in athletic training myself and I love every minute of it. You can also go into P.E. or physical therapy.
This can go a lot of different ways in my opinion.
What job is 'best' for a bodybuilder, the bodybuilder being YOU could be totally different things from one person to the next.
Do you want some office job where you just sit around and eat your meals and then lift when youre off? Do you want a physically demanding manual labor type job? Do you want something that actually involves fitness like being a trainer?
I would say to go towards the job that you want, or that you would enjoy while still making a decent amount of money. or enough to make a realistic comfortable living. Bodybuilding should come behind all of these things in order of priority, even though some would disagree with me
But the harsh reality is that for 99% of the people on this planet being big or in shape on its own isnt enough to earn you a living. You need skills, experience etc. Use what you have. And sadly "most" fitness jobs you may have in mind wont cut it for most people in the long term. Especially if you have kids or mountains of debt.
Im not saying that you wouldnt be able to.. it just seems like people have a harder time doing that, or go in with false expectations maybe. Hell you can still be a teacher or be an accountant or artist or something and be a bodybuilder. Just look for whats best for you.
Seriously, Brick's answer should be given thought. I am a white collar professional, dig my job, well paid, respected, etc etc etc and I worked bodybuilding around it (although in my advanced age I no longer use bodybuilding to describe my weight lifting).
