The human resource management system is one of the most valuable & essential assets for…
A typical office environment isn’t the right fit for everyone. In fact, for some people, the idea of a desk job is repulsive. If you’re a hands-on type who would vastly prefer working outside rather than inside, there are fortunately a lot of varied and growing job opportunities for you. Here are three outdoorsy careers that might be suited for you.
Construction work is in demand right now, meaning that you stand to have a good chance of success whether you wish to own your own construction business or find work as an employee. If you want to open your own construction business, you will likely need to either purchase or rent certain tools and equipment, and there are many outfits like Freo Group that can provide you with them. You will also need to get in contact with suppliers that can provide your business with the raw materials it needs, such as gravel or lumber.
2. Environmental Scientist
Many environmental scientists spend a lot of time outdoors, no matter their specialization, so this is a great career for those who would rather be out in the field. Environmental scientists are in demand and the profession is expected to grow by 11%, faster than average, per the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS). Environmental scientists work to protect both the environment and human health and work in many different areas for many different organizations, including legal firms, state and federal agencies, private businesses, laboratories and more. Specializations include zoology, soil, water, botany or forestry.
Long the backbone of human society, few people want to be farmers anymore. Unfortunately, farming is the one occupation on this list that is set to decline over the next decade, per the BLS, as automation and more efficient methods of farming become more commonplace, removing the need for many workers and ranch hands. But people still have to eat, and the growing and nurturing work it takes to raise either crops or livestock is very enjoyable for many people. It’s hard work though, but very rewarding. You can even play your part in helping to bring back small, local farms not owned by large-scale farming operations for a healthier, more sustainable farming industry.
There are a number of good, growing, enjoyable and well-paying hands-on outdoor careers, whether you choose to start your own small business or work for a company or organization. So if you aren’t the type to want to work indoors and are much better working with your hands, the careers listed here, and others, would be very good options for you.
