Fighting crime and generally being a badass is no mean feat, especially when you have to juggle a regular job in-between kicking ass and taking names. It's even harder when the individual's regular job doesn't take full advantage of his range of abilities.
But what if they did have jobs that matched their abilities? The possibilities would be endless. This is all hypothetical, of course, because for one reason or the other they decided to take jobs that have absolutely no correlation with their powers.

We have decided to conjure our imaginary world where everything is as it should be, and superpowered characters have jobs that match their abilities, and these are the individuals we think would benefit from a career change. Don't forget to chip in with the names of anyone we might have overlooked and jobs you think they'll do awesomely.
Pizza Delivery (Barry Allen) - The Flash
A lot of established facts are being challenged at the moment like how the earth isn't round, global warming isn't real and vaccines are evil. While others contend with such inconsequential issues, we are safe in the knowledge that it is a universally accepted fact that cold pizza sucks and that is all that matters. Imagine how much more attractive the prospect of living in Central City would be if they had the fastest man alive delivering pizzas to the masses. I bet a lot of people would jump at the chance to live in a place where your piping-hot pizza is delivered before you put down the phone. Having your brain melted in an alleyway by a metahuman seems like a reasonable risk to take for such a luxury.
Private Investigator (Kara Danvers) - Supergirl
Kara is by no means incompetent as a reporter, but she definitely wouldn't be taking home a Pulitzer anytime soon. The advantages her Kryptonian physiology awards her could be put to much better use finding out information that would otherwise be impossible to acquire. Jon definitely got the right idea, but he doesn't have Kara's abilities.
Firefighter (Daenerys Targaryen) - Game of Thrones
Instead of keeping up her family's reputation as serial arsonists and mass murderers, it'll be quite fascinating to see the mother of dragons take up a job that is basically the antithesis of her favorite hobby. Also, she's fireproof so that'll come in handy. It's kind of difficult to imagine what professional firefighters would look like in Westeros, but one thing we can be sure of is they won't be fans of house Targaryen.
Editor (Amenadiel) - Lucifer
Being an Editor can be a pretty grueling job, not that we'd know anything about it. But I bet TV Fanatic's own Editor-in-chief wouldn't mind sharing Amenadiel's ability to slow down time, especially on those long nights a lot of reviews have to be edited and published between a narrow time window. Too bad Amenadiel thought becoming a therapist was better than being the most unstressed editor on earth.
Photographer (Karolina Dean) - Marvel's Runaways
She'll render drone-captured aerial shots unnecessary with her ability to fly, and the same goes for camera flashes because there is no one who'd not rather have Karolina light them up with her dazzling bio-luminescent powers.
History Teacher (Klaus Mikaelson) - TVD Universe
Niklaus and his family have been at the center of a lot of important historical events, while also being the cause of a few of those along the way. In the modern day, Klaus paints in his downtime and is clearly wealthy enough to not require a regular job. Still, you can't help but feel like Klaus' first-hand knowledge of historical events (mostly the violent ones) was wasted when he died without passing the knowledge on to another generation.
