There are millions of jobs that are created, exist, and some are jobs are replaced by machines or eliminated altogether, as they are no longer needed, while some have not even been created yet, but there are certain jobs that are and will always be needed, are always in demand, and will always require service workers to fulfill these jobs. Some of these jobs require a great demand including years of education, years of training, or years of experience. There are other jobs that require no education or skills, and regardless of your background, provide training directly on the job.

These jobs include fields in government, mining and construction, education, healthcare, hospitality, manufacturing, retail, finances, transportation, science research, computer science and technology, entertainment, and the food packaging and preparation industry. Depending on your location and where you live, there may be a job opening waiting for you and your skills.

For more information about the job market and its demands, visit my in-depth article about a great resource called O*NET Online to discover the requirements of your future job and salary, and the training, education, and skills required for your specific job or career.

This infographic lists, in millions, every job in America.
