As a directory
assistance operator, I give out hundreds of telephone numbers every day.
I sort of like talking to people all day. I earn around $20,000 a year.
But I don't feel very secure - a lot of operators are losing their jobs
because of automation. Computers do everything these days. So I'm
studying to be a computer programmer at
My clients are all
I make plane, hotel, and car reservations for them. My annual salary
isn't very high - only $24,000 - but
I like my job.
It's pretty secure because travel
is a growing field.

- the plane tickets,
the hotel rooms, etc.
In my job, I mainly work with athletes who have sports injuries.

- $38,000 a year - and I always
have a lot of patients.
too busy to do physical therapy these days,
and they're happy to give the work to specialists like us.
