There’s a lot to think about when choosing a career. If you’re someone that likes to be moving around a lot, a desk job probably isn’t right for you. Here are a few fields you can get into that will help ensure you aren’t behind a desk all day.
Although working in the transportation industry does involve a lot of sitting down, you get to travel and see places you wouldn’t normally get to. Hopper bottom jobs give you the chance to see all sorts of things as you drive across the country. If you’re more interested in being a pilot, you can spend time in the cities you fly to. Flight attendants are also in the transportation industry and don’t sit down nearly as much as other jobs.
Doctors and nurses are on their feet for most of the day. In fact, if you become a surgeon you’ll spend most of your time on your feet. The medical field also includes physical, occupational and speech therapists who are constantly moving around during the day. Even ultrasound technicians are always up and about.
Teachers spend most of the day on their feet. They move from student to student helping small groups and individuals when they aren’t standing in front of the class teaching. Classroom aides are also constantly moving around. Although principals and vice principals are at their desks some, they are frequently roaming the school and interacting in the classroom.
The good news is that these fields have a lot of variety, which gives you a wide array of jobs to choose from. Do some research and talk to people who are in the profession you’re interested in. After all, your career is a big part of your life, so you want to make sure you’re doing something you love.
