+ 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

+ Loan Counselors Job Description
Financial institutions “rent” money in the form of loans. If they don’t make any loans, they don’t make any profit. That makes loan officers very important employees, because they’re the ones who work with customers to assemble and analyze the information needed to determine how much someone can borrow. There are set financial formulas, to be sure. But loan officers who specialize in “commercial” lending, or loans to businesses, must also know a lot about the businesses their customers are in > view more

+ Plumbers Job Description
The term plumber comes from the Latin word for lead, the material used for joints and pipes for centuries. Modern plumbers no longer use lead, but they still spend much of their time assembling, installing, and repairing pipes for systems that carry everything from water and steam to oil and gas. Plumbers can be found at construction sites and in residential and commercial buildings, where a great deal of the work involves cutting, bending, threading, and joining pipes and fittings > view more

+ Property, Real Estate, and Community Association Managers
Property or Real Estate Managers are the people who supervise the vital behind the scenes operations of malls, commercial office buildings or apartment buildings.

+ Real Estate Brokers Job Description
It looks so simple: the house is for sale. Someone wants to buy it. But the negotiations, financing and closing of the deal can be very complex. So most people selling real estate, and buying it, work with a broker. Real estate brokers have to be licensed by the state where they’re selling property. They take 30 to 90 hours of coursework about marketing property, zoning and tax laws, inspections, mortgages and other related matters > view more

+ Real Estate Sales Agents Job Description
Buying or selling a house is the biggest financial transaction in most people's lives, and real estate sales agents are intimately involved in every part of the process. Some agents specialize in commercial and industrial property, but the vast majority work in the residential market, usually in association with a licensed real estate broker. The broker provides office space and support services while the agent sells the property > view more

+ Roofers Job Description
Roofers work with diverse materials on many types of buildings: residential, commercial and industrial. In addition to new building, roofers do repair work on existing roofing, so their jobs are less affected by economic downturns than other construction jobs. Roofers need a good sense of balance, and must not be afraid of heights. They work outdoors in all types of weather. The job can be very strenuous, from erecting scaffolds, to hauling heavy bags of shingles up ladders > view more
