To live beyond middle age without a frequent visit to a hospital. In the healthcare industry, a dietician is a healthcare professional who assesses and recommends nutrition to clients, carers, and colleagues.     OTHER RELATED OR SIMILAR ROLES Clinical nutritionist Gerontological nutritionist Neonatal nutritionist dietitian Nurse-dietitian Nutritional advisers Nutrition experts Nutritionist Public health nutritionist Sports and fitness nutritionist Therapeutic nutritionist dietitian   JOB RESPONSIBILITIES Design menus and nutrition Write reports Advice about special diets Consult with other health professionals regarding dietary needs or restrictions Monitor food service to ensure compliance to nutrition, safety and sanitary standards Develop policies or rules on nutrition and disease control Test food products and equipment   WORKPLACE - WHERE DO THEY WORK?

This course will you understand how to document, implement, and monitor nutritional programs for an individual or group. In your last year of the course, you’ll be asked to undergo on-the-job training in community food manufacturing companies, food/beverage companies and health facilities. After graduation, if you want to be a registered dietitian,  you must take an exam conducted by the Professional Regulations Commission (PRC).   PAYSCALE According to, the average salary of a dietitian is 245, 000 PHP every year, the lowest is 108, 000 PHP and the highest is 357, 000 PHP.   JOB MARKET OUTLOOK People need the right nutrition to stay healthy and fit. You can’t just do anything you want 24/7. Getting and eating the right food for a healthy body isn’t simple and there’s always be a need for a dietitian. An increase in the aging population will raise the demand for dietitians.   PROSPECTS FOR CAREER ADVANCEMENT You can advance in this job by taking additional training or postgraduate degrees such as a masters degree or doctorate. You can also get promoted to administrative or managerial roles.   RISKS OF BEING AUTOMATED OR REPLACED BY ROBOTS According to, there’s a 0.4% chance of dietitians being automated or replaced by robots. That chance can be lower if professionals stay in their human interaction role.   PROS AND CONS Pros Help people get healthy Work in different places The pay isn’t bad.  You’re less exposed to the risk of infections due to handling specimens or visiting patients who have a communicable disease. Cons You may work with patients who have shortened life expectancy. And losing them is disheartening. You have to follow and get updated on regulations. Schooling could be expensive and intense.   DIETITIAN VERSUS NUTRITIONIST These two terms are often confused. Although they have similar training and education, a dietitian is often certified or licensed while a nutritionist isn’t.  Registered Dietitians are qualified to design diets and diagnose eating disorders while anyone who has a nutritional background or has studied a short-term course can call themselves a nutritionist even without a valid license. In the United States, however, a nutrition professional is called a certified nutrition specialist.

Flying is fun. You see the clouds, enjoy the view of miniature cities below, reach different cities, and landmarks across continents that were only in your dreams when you’re still attending history and geographical lessons. If you’re a frequent flier, you’ll love watching flat screens while eating inflight catering cuisines subject to the specific country and airline. The increase in tourism, airports, and advances in air travel leads to more jobs in aviation. If you’re a new graduate, a mid-career person or planning to take a college degree, this article listed some of the careers in the aviation. Air Traffic Controllers Air traffic controllers guide pilots and their craft to land safely. Here, you work in airport towers where you have a full view of the runway. You’ll use equipment such as radar screens, controls, two way-radios, and telephones. Your daily life in this job includes: Direct inbound and outbound air traffic such as aircraft taxiing, airport workers, baggage and maintenance vehicles. Guide pilots with flight directions and changes during emergency landings due to bad weather and aircraft trouble. Keep telephone and radio contact with other nearby control towers, area control centres and terminal control units to manage aircraft movement. Transfer departing or outbound flights to other traffic control zones. Receive control of arriving or inbound flights. Issue flight clearances. Customs Officer If you like to contribute to the welfare of the country and guarding borders against illegal trade and making sure everyone is paying the right taxes at the airport then this job is for you. You’re tasked to collect customs duties (taxes), prevent illegal trade of contraband items and flow of dangerous objects. You could work either at the airport, seaport or land border. Your daily working routine includes: Ask passengers to open baggage and check the insides to ensure no contraband gets through the airport whether it’s inbound or outbound. Prohibited items include illegal drugs, illegal wildlife goods, pornographic materials, explosives, weapons, and chemicals (e.g. mercury) that can damage aluminum. Another part of your routine is to ask passengers to place electronic devices, shoes, food, and liquids on the trays. Check and make sure that outbound and inbound passengers only bring the allowed cash amount. An excess of a certain amount (over $10,000) violates the anti-money laundering law. Operate X-ray machines - Here, you’re trained to watch hundreds of luggage come and go to X-ray machines and ensure no illegal items go unchecked. Ask passengers to comply with security checks - Here, you may frisk the passengers. Flight Catering Cooks Cooks, chefs, stewards and commissaries make the delicious inflight meals. The team comprises the following positions: Menu planners - They are chefs that design garnishes and do costing to minimize expenditures and implement food standards. They may perform administrative tasks such as interviewing applicants and overseeing food preparing operations. Commissaries - They are the front-liners who portion ingredients, cook hot food, mix salads and place meals into individual plates, cups and bowls. They may retrieve ingredient supplies from the warehouse. Flight Catering Dishwashers and Warehouse Staff Flight catering support involves the dishwashers and warehouse staff who make flight catering possible, orderly and efficient. Dishwasher - Load soiled utensils into dishwashers and dryers and sort them. Warehouse staff - These guys receive ingredient deliveries, sort items and retrieve them for inflight catering staff. Flight Catering Trolley Worker A flight catering trolley worker is responsible for getting those inflight meals into the aircraft. Here, you will use a trolley containing trays of passenger food made and prepared by cooks at the airport. You’ll work wearing a hairnet and following sanitary standards (Hazard Analysis Critical Control Point). Before loading the trolleys, you have to double-check if the quantity and quality conform with the declared list. Afterwards, you’ll push trolleys inside the catering truck or food loader and unload them inside the plane. Then, you have to detail the handover to the cabin crew about the quantity and quality of the declared menu. You’ll work for companies that are either subcontracted by the airline of a subsidiary by the airline company. Flight Steward (Flight Attendant) Flight stewards are among the frontlines of the aviation industry. They face the customers, greet them with pleasantries, attend to their needs and ensure that passengers have a pleasant flight from take-off to landing. Flight attendants perform the following routines and tasks: Great and guide passengers who can be in the boarding gate and inside the plane. Demonstrate how to use the Emergency Oxygen System (EOS). Serve welcome drinks, snacks and dishes depending on the flight duration and menus. Guide passengers towards their assigned seats and ticket class (First, Business and Economy). Guide passengers on how to use the entertainment system and amenities inside the plane. Provide headsets. Retrieve used utensils. A flight steward can be rewarding as it offers you an opportunity to reach different places, airports and countries depending on your airline’s route. The qualification for this job will need specialized training in an aviation and flight attendant school. Commonly, most airlines may require you to finish a degree in Bachelor of Science in Tourism Management. Airlines are strict in requiring applicants to be presentable - physical appearance or grooming. While there’s a glamour vibe linked to this job, being a flight steward is stressful as it involves you to deal with different passengers who can be uncooperative, disrespectful or ungracious, cope with sporadic hours and flight cancellations or delays, and help passengers put their bags up quickly. Earning as a flight attendant can let you live a middle-class lifestyle or more depending on the airline company size and position. Immigration Officer Immigration officers constitute the country’s frontline of safekeeping the country’s border against illegal immigrants, human trafficking and blacklisted individuals. Like the customs officer, this position is a government one. Likely, you’ll work for your country’s immigration agency. Here, you’ll be facing hundreds to thousands of inbound tourists, businessmen, politicians and celebrities. You might be posted at the airport or seaport. A day in your job includes: Checking passports of inbound and outbound passengers – Here, you’ll stamp departure and arrival stamps on passport pages, check visa stamps, validate visa stamps via a computer database and refer flagged and blacklisted individuals to the immigration office. Query inbound and outbound passengers - You may ask a person these questions: For inbound foreigners, “What is the purpose of your stay? Are you travelling alone?” For outbound citizens: Who is your sponsor in that country? Do you have a return ticket? Operate profiling devices - Some airports in affluent countries use advanced iris and facial scanners to profile inbound and outbound passengers. A blacklisted person (due to visa violations and offences related to the host country’s laws) can be flagged when he or she is scanned by such devices. Operate passport scanners - Passport scanners complement the immigration officers’ job, so basically, these machines do the job. Pilot Perhaps pilots (along with stewards) are the most visible jobs in aviation. They are professionals who trained hundreds to thousands of hours flying different models of Airbus and Boeing planes.  Pilots also train on a flight simulator before flying the real aircraft. This career is highly paid but it comes with a great price - most pilots came from affluent families as the required flight training hours can be expensive. You’ll work for passenger and cargo airlines. The daily routines include: Check the aeroplane cockpit/dashboard. Request take-off and landing clearance from the air traffic controller. Fly the plane to the destination. Keep in touch with other aircraft and air traffic controllers. Monitor electronic instrumentation panels such as radar. Airport Baggage Handler Airport baggage handler comprises the airport employees tasked to sort baggage according to flight number and airline. You’ll work in a large facility where machines and very long (about several kilometer-long conveyor belts sort and transport hundreds of pieces of luggage. You may use trolleys and vehicles to load and take out items. Baggage Acceptance Crew This position entails accepting passengers’ baggage and weighing them on a weight scale. You’re a part of the airline company’s ground crew and posted at desks with mini-conveyors. Your job is safe to keep, sort and tag baggage. Also, you’ll ensure that each baggage complies with the baggage weight allowance and limit.

Boring jobs refers to occupations with little creativity and excitement opportunities. You can imagine such work killing the time or seeing the clock and wishing that your shift comes to the end. Boredom can result in job dissatisfaction, high attrition rate and low productivity. This list can help you assess the drivers to a monotonous atmosphere. Lift Operator Lift operators make sure that visitors, tenants, residents get to the right floor. They may use two-way radios or the elevator’s alert system in case of emergency. Most of the time, they will just sit and listen to music. They’ll receive a dose of anti-boredom rush whenever they build rapport with passengers or hear their favorite music. But most of the time, the cycle of pressing a button, letting passengers in and out gives this job minimal career advancement. Tollbooth Fee Collector In countries where manual toll payment is used (non-RFID), tollbooth fee collectors or cashiers process hundreds to thousands of motorists. You’ll have to quickly process each motorist, assign the correct charge for the different vehicle types. The repetitive cashiering and sitting at the booth for 8 hours a day can make this work boring. But a plus side of this job is that you’ll be greeting and meeting numerous people. Factory Worker A classic example of a boring job is a factory worker. Here you could be assigned to packing, canning, sardines processing or product assembly line of a manufacturing or production plant. An 8 to 12-hour shift might mean bad posture, repeating the same motion over and over again, and having to stand for long period of time. Security Guard For the most part of this job, you’ll be standing or sitting in your security cubicle or booth. There you’ll be guarding, greeting customers, checking bags, populating records. You may also stand at the entrance and open the door for customers. Transcriptionist Doctors, lawyers and other industries outsource their mundane tasks overseas, including transcribing. The task of a transcriptionist is to listen to spoken words and sentences or audio recording and transcribe them into grammatically and factually correct paragraphs and documents. While you’ll use your attention and grammar skills here, in the end, you could get overwhelmed by the repetitive tasks. Buckingham Palace Guards A special brigade or force protects the royal family queen of the United Kingdom. These bearskin and red-tunics wearing guards stand at the entrance and hold a rifle. They march back and forth at the main entrance, secondary entrance, aisle and hallways. These guardsmen need to express a professional level of discipline while marching and dealing with possible troublemakers. But the repetitive nature of this job makes it one of the most boring jobs. Bagger Baggers are entry-level jobs posted at supermarket cashier stations. Here you’ll take the correct plastic or paper bag for the customer’s goods. You will tie cardboard cartons and make sure they are resistant to tampering and rough handling. You may also assist them in their vehicles or transport terminal. Housekeeper It is one of the most backbreaking and tiring jobs. Housekeeping isn’t fun when you have to repetitively keep rooms tidy and neat, and use the same equipment all day. On top of that, the constant back bending to arrange bedsheets and pillows makes this job not only boring but also difficult. Data Encoder Sitting in front of the computer and typing texts from paper to computer will surely send your mind into daydreaming. Typing and scrolling your mouse can lead to carpal tunnel syndrome or sprained wrist. Call Centre Agent While handling customers' queries and solving their problems can improve your speaking and customer service skills, when such a cycle is made over and over again, boredom follows. Add to that, you have to deal with rude customers. Unpleasant and non-challenging things can make working uninteresting.
