+ Bakers, Manufacturing Job Description
The main difference between the baker at your local pastry shop and the baker at a large manufacturing firm is the environment in which they work.

+ Bartenders Job Description
Bartenders fill the beer, wine, and mixed drink orders that waiters and waitresses take from patrons seated in a restaurant or lounge. Most do the same for customers seated at the bar. Whether through vocational school training or personal experience, most bartenders know how to prepare drink orders quickly and efficiently, even during an establishment’s busiest periods. However, since the same brands are available everywhere, the most important part of a bartender’s job is usually the creation of a friendly, welcoming atmosphere that encourages customers to return on a regular basis > view more

+ Cooks, Restaurant Job Description
Across the nation, over 700,000 restaurant cooks prepare literally millions of meals each day, most of them cooked to order.

+ Drafters Job Description
A drafter “draws” the plans that specify how something should be constructed. Engineers and architects may develop the grand design of a machine, building, or circuit board, but the drafter is the one who does the “heavy lifting” of filling in the specific details -— without which nothing could be built. The work of drafters is all around you. Your computer, your telephone, and your TV exist because a drafter at some company created a set of plans specifying how it should be built > view more

+ Electric Home Appliance and Power Tool Repairers Job Description

+ Employment Interviewers, Private or Public Employment
Most employment interviewers work either for personnel staffing firms and employment agencies or for state job service centers.

+ Explosives Workers, Ordnance Handling Experts, and Blasters
Few careers leave so little room for error as that of an explosives worker. This is a job with conditions that are not only challenging, but often dangerous.

+ Glaziers Job Description
Handling glass requires a combination that might seem strange: strong gentleness. Glaziers have to be strong to work on their feet, lift sheets of glass, and handle the frames of windows and doors with ease.

+ Home Health Aides Job Description
EVENT 01084 a. HOME HEALTH AIDE - 374 A/V: NARRATOR (VO): As both hospital costs and the number of elderly citizens grow, home health aides are playing an increasingly important role in the nation's health-care system. Years ago, when grandparents, parents, and children all lived in the same house, someone was always available to help care for an ill family member. But that usually isn't the case today > view more

+ Machine Setters and Tenders Job Description
Nearly every company that manufactures things needs machine setters and tenders. That's because, as powerful as they may be, most machines can't "feed themselves" with the raw materials they were designed to process. Specific duties vary depending on the industry, but most machines need someone to change molds, bits, or cutting tools, fill reservoirs, make fine adjustments, and check coolant or lubricant levels > view more

+ Office Machine and Cash Register Servicers Job Description
Electro-mechanical devices are the weak link in a computerized world. That’s because, unlike computers, they are based on moving parts. Cash registers, printers, photocopiers, and fax machines have to transport paper past a printing or scanning element. Typewriters, which many offices use to fill out multi-part forms, have printing heads that physically strike carbon ribbons and paper. And where there is movement, there is wear, and, eventually, the need for repair > view more

+ Order Fillers, Wholesale and Retail Sales Job Description

The order clerk serves an important role, since he or she is often a customer’s only direct contact with the company > view more

Operators move materials to and from production areas -- manually or with forklifts, dollies, carts, or handtrucks > view more

+ Packers and Packagers, Hand Job Description
The modern industrial assembly line is a wonder to behold: bottles, boxes, jars, cans, and thousands of other products move by at a dizzying rate. But in many cases, they'd all wind up in a pile on the floor at the end of the line if it were not for hand packers and packagers. Some tasks simply cannot be automated. Therefore, many production lines still rely on human beings to visually inspect and manually pack or package their output > view more

+ Paperhangers Job Description
People have decorated the walls of their living spaces since ancient times. Modern advancements in the materials and techniques used to cover surfaces created positions for painters and paperhangers. Paperhangers, on the other hand, cover interior rooms with decorative wallpaper, fabric, vinyl and other materials. Each trade has its own set of skills…both must properly prepare the surfaces to be covered so that the paint or paper adheres to the surface > view more

+ Pharmacists Job Description
When a prescription is written for a drug or treatment, the next step for the patient is usually a visit to the pharmacist. And while for most people, that often means going to the local drug store, hospitals and community clinics have pharmacies as well. Typically, pharmacists spend most of the day standing at a counter, dispensing medication. They may also compound the medication, though this is now a much smaller part of a pharmacist’s practice > view more

+ Pharmacy Aides Job Description
A pharmacy is literally a lifeline for the community it serves. This is where people come to obtain the medicine and equipment their health care professionals have prescribed.

Applicants for these positions usually need a high school degree—and a record clean of drug or substance abuse > view more

+ Pharmacy Technicians Job Description
Pharmacists used to fill prescriptions by preparing and dispensing doctor-specified pills, creams, and liquids, by hand.

But someone must still measure the doses, count out the pills, and type up instructions for the patient > view more

When the work is completed, they make sure the images were developed properly > view more

+ Physical Therapist Aides Job Description
If you enjoy helping the others, you may want to consider working as a Physical Therapist Aide. You don’t need formal training or a license to be hired. Physical Therapist Aides assist patients receiving treatment by physical therapists. They help disabled patients move to treatment areas; they keep the areas organized and clean, and prepare them for each patient’s therapy. Some Aides also do clerical work, such as ordering supplies and filling out medical insurance forms > view more

+ Printing Press Machine Operators and Tenders Job Description
We live in the Internet age, but printing text and images on paper and other materials is more popular than ever.

+ Sheriffs and Deputy Sheriffs Job Description
A/V: NARRATOR (VO): Any position in law enforcement is filled with daily challenges. But the job of sheriffs differs from other law-enforcement officials in that their jurisdiction is usually limited to a single county. And, unlike commissioners and chiefs of police, sheriffs are usually elected by popular vote. Sheriffs and their deputies are involved in a wide range of law enforcement activities within their jurisdiction —everything from issuing traffic tickets to conducting murder investigations > view more

+ Waiters and Waitresses Job Description
Waiters and waitresses take orders and serve food in restaurants, coffee shops, and other establishments. But few people realize that a waiter or waitress can make or break a business. That's because "service sells!" The food may be completely ordinary, but if the waiters and waitresses are friendly and attentive, customers will come back again and again. Job opportunities can range from local diners… to national chains… to expensive restaurants in major cities and resort areas > view more
