"if the job requires an intrinsic knowledge that you possess" :
you are most likely NOT going to get a premium because, if you know that knowledge you probably duno many others, your boss knows no one/very few will hire you for that specific knowledge and your pay will be crapped.

"Career lifespan - if this job only lasts 10 years, " : Coding skills are skills that have an expiry date, but yet coders are paid peanuts. A 40years old programmer with 20years coding in BASIC is no better than an ITE student when it comes to coding java.

Consider all factors and make your choice wisely...
Yeah, best jobs are those where supply is artificially limited like doctors and lawyers where even the average performers are very well paid. The rest feel the effects of globalisation much more
