9 Jobs

Concerned about your job? According to the U.S. Department of Labor and Yahoo! HotJobs, here are 9 jobs that are not likely to be shipped oceans away:

Dental Assistant - It's tough to clean teeth from across the world. A career as a dental assistant usually begins with an associate's degree from an accredited college or university.

Pharmacy Technician - People take their health seriously. A certification as a pharmacy tech is not likely to be outsourced.

Fitness Professional - It's hard enough to be motivated in-person. Offshore encouragement won't cut it. A career in fitness can begin with a certificate program.

Teacher's Aide - Teachers need live help to care for kids. An anonymous, off-site representative just won't cut it when it comes to educating our kids.

Auto Repair Technician - Most car troubles can't be repaired with simple, over-the-phone instructions. An auto tech studies anywhere from 6 months to 2 or more years, and will always have a steady stream of live customers.

Pet Groomer - Along the lines of a dog trainer, pet grooming just must be done in person. This is usually only a certificate program.

Plumber - This career depends fully on local workers. Plumbers definitely won't be phoning in from overseas to unclog your toilet.

Veterinary Assistant - A pet's health and happiness is of serious importance to most owners, and they won't be putting it in the hands of foreign workers. You can become a vet assistant by completing a certificate program.

Electrician - This highly technical and hands-on job simply can't be done any other way, except live and in-person.

"But I am trusting You, O Lord, saying, 'You are my God!' My future is in Your hands ... Be strong and take courage, all you who put your hope in the Lord!" - Psalm 31:14, 15, 24.
