20 Amazing Jobs That We All Respect


As children, we were big dreamers who knew no fear or impossibilities. Adults often laugh in amusement when kids reveal what they want to be in the future. Perhaps when you were young, you wanted to be a fighter jet pilot or a famous Hollywood actress. Whatever those dreams were and are, they motivated us to work hard and well into adulthood.

Here are some of the most amazing jobs we respect as adults

Coast Guard Rescue Swimmer

When you get into trouble at the middle of the sea/ocean, your only hope is to have some sort of hero to rescue you. A Coast Guard rescue swimmer is one of the noblest jobs out there and probably the closest thing we have to an aquatic superhero.

Private Tutor

It may not be a common thing to dream about becoming a tutor but for kids who have had to learn through them, it’s not an unusual thing. Becoming a private tutor takes a lot of patience and enough creativity to effectively teach his/ her clients what they need to know. Plus, the connection you make with your student is priceless, as compared to the usual classroom setting.

Land Surveyor

Land surveyors are vital to any construction project. As kids, we knew them as the construction guys who looked through a viewfinder type of equipment. And we wanted so bad to look through that equipment, too, not knowing what the job entails. Land surveyors know the end of every parcel of land regardless of the terrain. We need them to determine the location of the properties we own. People will fight over the ownership of land without land surveyors.

Nuns and priests

It’s a noble thing to give up your family or vow never to have a family of your own to serve the Church and the community. As children, we did not know the magnitude of becoming a nun or priest – we just think it looks cool to be someone a community looks up to and respects.

Optometrists

Optometrists are specialists in the field of eye medicine. We need them so we can see things clearly as we age or suffer some illnesses. Without the optometrists, we may lose our sight without having any help to try saving it.

Electricians

Electricians are perhaps one of the most underrated jobs in the world. The modern world need their expertise and provide the life line of industries and infrastructure, communication, transportation, and more.

Blacksmiths

No one will ever dare to look down on blacksmiths them because they make swords. Even in ancient times, blacksmiths are extremely important because they provide the necessary equipment in war. Today, they are providers of the foundations of our houses, buildings as well as other structures. Being a blacksmith takes a lot of patience and craftsmanship.

Nurses & Doctors

They are like the mechanic of our bodies. We easily to doctors and nurses when we don’t feel good. They assist us and prescribe medicines. Without doctors and nurses, we probably only live up to 30 years old because of infections and other diseases.

Air traffic controllers

Airplanes are in danger of crashing into each other without air traffic controllers. All planes leaving and entering an airport need to acquire permission from them. They make traffic go smoothly up in the air and into the runway so we can depart and arrive safely.

Veterinarians

Garbage collectors

No one can ever dare to think how our environment would look like without the garbage collectors. They collect what we dispose of from our houses and offices to make sure that those are properly segregated.

Soldiers

The same with the ship captains, pilots play an important role in our transportation industry. The lives of hundreds of people are in their hands as they travel above the sky. They go for up to thousands of feet above the ground but make sure everyone is safe when they reach their destination.

Teachers

We learned to read, write, compute, communicate, and more because of our teachers. They are our mothers/ fathers outside of our own homes. To help you learn is their utmost goal.

Astronauts

A lot of young children want to be astronauts. Why? It is because they want to be in the outer space floating and watching over the earth from the distance. Even from an adult’s point of view, being an astronaut is nothing short of cool!

Scientists

Science kids were called “weird” in high school but in truth, they’re just really smart. Scientists help us discover new things about ourselves and the world that we live in through constant research and study. When you’re a scientist, the learning never stops.

Farmers

Being a farmer is probably one of the most thankless jobs in the world. Farmers provide food for us to survive and yet they get little to nothing in return – they don’t even have days off or holidays. They plant and sow but sometimes they don’t eat. It’s ironic and painful to think that those who provide us food cannot provide their own personal needs.
