Carlsbad, CA (June 15, 2017) – One way to make a difference in society is to work for a non-profit organization striving for the greater good. In addition to working in the non-profit sector, there are many professions where you can make a positive contribution to the community, including Social Worker, School Teacher, EMT, Home Health Aide, and Funeral Director, says a new report by CareerCast.com.

Elementary and Secondary School Teachers are often the biggest influences on young lives. Similarly, Social and Community Managers can be major influences on children outside of the home, managing coordinating and supervising social service programs and community organizations. Social workers help people solve and cope with problems in their everyday lives.

Police, Firefighters, and EMTs are the pillars of a community. The role these professions play in our society includes heroism and saving lives.

The booming healthcare industry provides plenty of opportunities to make a difference in the lives of others. Two fields to consider are Home Health Aide – the fastest-growing profession in the United States – and Dietitian.

Home Health Aides are the immediate and regular contact for outbound patients. The growing demand for in-home service, particularly among the aging Baby Boom generation, means the opportunity to have a widespread positive impact on older and disabled people, or terminally ill people in hospice care.

Dietitians are also in growing demand. An increased focus on wellness has necessitated greater demand for Dietitians. And, as the country combats the negative effects of obesity and poor health, the work of Dietitians has profound benefit on a macro level.

On the other hand, the often-overlooked job, Funeral Director, plays an important role when a loved one passes away, helping families through a difficult time.

“The places in which one can make a difference span just about every industry, and include many different professions,” says Kyle Kensing, Online Content Editor, CareerCast. “Our report concentrates on jobs where you can make a positive impact on society through personally satisfying work but that don’t require more than a Bachelor’s degree.”

CareerCast.com’s “Jobs Where You Can Make a Difference” list spotlights 12 jobs from the 2017 Jobs Rated report, reflecting the positive contributions made in a variety of industries, and affecting different parts of our culture.
