what type of job carers are out there that does not require sitting in an office or working for someone?

As a young adult and an upcoming senior in high school, i've been granted the opportunity to participate in summer internship for big companies and i've come to a realization that i don't like the sound of doing a 9-5 in a cubical. I don't have an interest in a career where i'll have to work for someone or do a 9-5 in a cubical. I need help in searching for interesting careers that does not fit in any of this criteria that i can go to college for #college #career #general #workers #specialist #grads

Hi there!


Miquel has some great suggestions above. He is right that it really depends on what specifically you're interested in and what your passions are.


Sometimes, you can work for a big company and not have to sit behind a desk all day. For example, if you're in a sales position, you'd be out on sales calls most of the day and interacting with different clients and potential clients.


Something in the health and fitness industry (as Miguel mentioned) would be a great start.
- personal trainer
- nutritional coach
- or even a lifestyle coach


I'd also suggest exploring options in medical/healthcare. Unless you're in an administrative position, you will definitely not be stuck in a cubicle while working in healthcare.
- Nurse
- Doctor
- Physical Therapist
- Dietitian
- plus many, many, many more


Another option is retail. You'd be interacting with customers and helping with their purchases.


Don't get discouraged if you don't find your dream non-cubicle job right away. Sometimes it takes trial and error to figure out what you're most passionate about. And in doing so, you'll be gaining experience in different areas that will ultimately prepare you for that dream job.


Best of luck!


Thank you very much for your wonderful suggestions and advice. I'm going to do more research on each of these careers to see if they peak my interest ROQEEB G.

Hi Roqeeb,


It ultimately depends on what you're interested in. However some non-traditional jobs that keep you fairly active are:




  1. National Park Service or State Park Service Ranger - You get to be in the outdoors a lot and maintain the environment for others.




  2. Personal Trainer - You get to stay active, as you're up and in a gym a lot. Not to mention you help others lose weight and stay healthy, which everyone is always really grateful for. The hours are also really flexible which is a huge plus.




  3. Entrepreneur - Ultimately you can do whatever you want when you run your own business. If you want to set your own active and non-office lifestyle, figuring out what service/product you'd like to provide to others, and being in charge of your own lifestyle, is a big advantage.




Thanks!
Miguel
