+ Aerospace Engineers Job Description
Since the Wright Brother’s inaugural flight at Kitty Hawk in 1903, aircraft have come a long way. Aeronautical engineers work on aircraft which operate within the Earth’s atmosphere, while Astronautical engineers deal with aircraft which operate outside the Earth’s atmosphere. The people who design, develop and air and space craft may be experts in a variety of disciplines, including aerodynamics, propulsion, thermodynamics, structures, acoustics, or guidance and control systems > view more

+ Air Traffic Controllers Job Description
At first it looks like a video game…but this is very much for real. Each number on the screen represents an aircraft…and the passengers’ lives depend on your careful, swift, decisive, constant instruction. Most Air traffic controllers are employed and trained by the federal government. The pay and benefits are excellent, but the stress is high. Whether you work in an airport control tower to make sure planes stay a safe distance apart on the ground, taking off and landing… a Terminal Area Control Facility or an enroute control center monitoring travel through invisible highways in the sky, you must speak clearly, work in a team, and be constantly on the alert > view more

+ Aircraft Cargo Handling Supervisors Job Description
When we think of air travel, we tend to think of people on the go. But there are plenty of other things that travel by plane. In fact, there are entire fleets of aircraft dedicated only to cargo operations. Aircraft cargo handling supervisors are responsible for making sure cargo is properly loaded and transported safely. They need to be experts in calculating the maximum amount of cargo the plane can carry > view more

+ Aircraft Engine Specialists Job Description
The lives and safety of everyone who flies are in the hands of aircraft mechanics. That’s because it is the aircraft mechanic’s job to keep every airplane and helicopter in peak operating condition. Equally important, each mechanic must be on the lookout for excessive wear, metal fatigue, and other conditions that may cause problems in the future. Mechanics work on every kind of aircraft. But specialization in areas like the airframe, the engines and power plants, or electronics and avionics instruments is common > view more

+ Airline Pilots, Copilots, and Flight Engineers
Aircraft pilots fly airplanes and helicopters to do everything from crop dusting to intercontinental travel to traffic reports for radio stations. Flight engineers assist the cockpit crew in some larger airplanes by monitoring and operating many of the instruments and systems, but computers are rapidly eliminating this position. Generally, jet pilots earn more than pilots of propeller-driven planes do > view more

+ Ambulette Drivers and Attendants, Except EMT
This is a job that often requires speed, but always combined with the utmost care. Ambulette drivers and attendants drive vehicles and assist in transporting sick or injured people. Many of these jobs do not come with flashing lights and sirens, however.

+ Aviation Inspectors Job Description
When you board an aircraft, it’s good to know that aviation inspectors have been on the job. They ensure that all United States registered aircraft meet federal safety regulations. One way this is done is by careful and extensive inspection of the aircraft. Aviation inspectors must also examine flight and repair records. Only aircraft that have a valid airworthy, certificate issued by the FAA, can fly > view more

+ Avionics Technicians Job Description
Avionics technicians keep airplanes in the sky. They repair and maintain components used for aircraft navigation, radio communications, flight control, weather radar systems and engine operation. They also work on computerized instruments that run the aircraft. They may have to analyze and develop solutions to complex electronic problems. This is one of the highest paid technical professions, and it’s easy to see why > view more

+ Camera and Photographic Equipment Repairers
The world of cameras and photography is becoming increasingly complex. What once was a simple mechanical matter of allowing light to enter a box and engrave an image… now can involve complex electronics and computer chips. So camera and photographic equipment repairers need very specific knowledge and training. Career schools offer classes in subjects like computer or film technology. Manufacturers and retailers offer on-the-job training > view more

And the technical skill to record that image reliably > view more

+ Chemists Job Description
Chemicals make up our world. Some are natural. Some are made by humans—synthetic. But each chemical has its own particular way of behaving under changing conditions such as heat, exposure to light, and combination with other substances. Chemists study how chemicals affect each other, and how they interact with the environment. Usually they specialize in a particular kind of chemistry. They use their knowledge to contribute to many different fields, from energy development to medicine and food processing > view more

+ Electricians Job Description
For years after Edison invented the light bulb, people wouldn't buy a lamp unless it could use both electricity and gas. Most assumed electricity in the home was just a fad, and they wanted to be prepared for the return to gaslight. Today, of course, civilization depends on electricity and on the men and women who splice the wires and install the switches to make the electricity flow. The work of electricians is as varied as the uses for electricity itself > view more

+ Film and Video Editors Job Description
Between the camera…and the audience… comes a very important job. Film and Video Editors edit soundtracks, film and video for the motion picture, cable and broadcast television industries. They select the scenes captured by the camera operator…and put them in a sequence. It sounds simple. It isn’t. In addition to creativity, a thorough understanding of what needs to be communicated drives each decision > view more

+ Film Laboratory Technician Job Description
Before motion picture footage can be edited into a film, it has to be processed, prepped, transferred and digitized into an editing system. Film laboratory technicians process and prep the film for that transfer. These workers are involved in many tasks in a film processing facility, and may specialize. While it helps to have a discerning eye, some lab techs rely more on their sense of touch -- working comfortably and accurately in complete darkness! In order to show you this, we're simulating the procedures with the lights on > view more

+ Flight Attendants Job Description
It’s a job that looks glamorous on the outside, but on the inside there’s lots of hard work. Flight Attendants are important people: they are responsible for making sure safety regulations are observed onboard their aircraft. They instruct passengers in the use of equipment like seat belts and oxygen masks and they’re trained to help passengers evacuate in the event of an emergency landing. All of that comes on top of greeting passengers, helping them find their seats and stow their bags, serving meals, and coping with turbulence, airsickness—and occasionally with disruptive travelers > view more

+ Grips and Set-Up Workers, Motion Picture Sets, Studios, and Stages Job Description
There’s more to making a movie or television show, than what the audience sees. Behind the scenes there are workers responsible for moving equipment and building sets. Called Grips, or Set-up Workers, they are the “muscle” on a film or TV shoot. Grips are “jacks of all trades.” They assist the electricians with lighting. They help move and set up camera equipment.

+ Janitors and Cleaners, Except Maids and Housekeeping Cleaner
Janus was the Roman god who guarded gates and doors, so it's not surprising that the first "janitors" were doorkeepers. Gradually the job responsibilities expanded to include cleaning, sweeping, and otherwise caring for a building. That's why janitors are sometimes also known as "building custodians" or "maintenance workers." Schools, apartment and office buildings, shopping malls, airport terminals, hospitals, and just about every other place people gather, rely on janitors to keep them neat and clean > view more

+ Traffic Technician Job Description
There’s a lot more to traffic than “stop” and “go.” To keep motorists moving, Traffic Technicians perform many complex tasks. They might set the length of time a light stays “red…” Count the number of trucks using a particular bridge… Make sure a road crew is protected and well marked… Or analyze accident reports to determine if a highway interchange is too dangerous… Those are just a few examples, of the work that goes into enhancing safety and the smooth flow of traffic > view more
