There comes a time in everyone’s life where they start to question what they’re doing. This could be anything from your personal life or your business life. It’s all about working towards your goal, and if you haven’t got one, maybe it’s time you start planning, that way you can have something to set your mind on and get closer to your dream – whatever that may be.
If you’re looking for a new career path that will challenge you in all the right ways, while wearing a uniform that you’re proud of showing off, letting everyone know what you do – then you have plenty of options.
Here are the top 5 careers that require you to wear a uniform.
In order to be a successful chef, you will have to have a passion for food and know how to create new flavours with the ingredients you are given. You usually have to go to culinary school if you want a career as a chef, because they will be able to teach you all the necessary techniques and skills that you will need, along with what works well together.
You will have to wear anti-flammable clothing that is strong enough to protect you from minor burns, a hat to keep your hair covered and a good pair of shoes that not only grip, but have a steel cap shielding your toes.
Other than having the pleasure of telling people you’re a pilot, it’s one hell of a responsibility, (and it’s super cool!) Just imagine having the ability to fly an aircraft over the ocean, to different countries throughout the day, transporting people to a magical destination.
Let’s admit it, who doesn’t fantasize about wearing that pilot hat, and fastening that oh so import brooch onto your shirt? You get to greet people by the door, and then tell them with confidence that they’re in safe hands while you are flying amongst the clouds. Only to land and be thanked by your excited passengers who have now arrived safely, thanks to you.
Builders tend to get overlooked sometimes, but the hard work that goes into being a builder every day can be exhausting and so rewarding at the same time. You get to create things from nothing and build them into something, and to see that final picture that you and your team grafted so hard for – is a very satisfying moment.
Although you may not wear a suit and tie, you get to wear a flashy high-vis jacket and some sturdy boots to hold you up all day long. – If you want to know what the best kind of boots would be that grip, support and give you the comfort you need; these are the top 10.
Everyone will figure out what you do. The cement stained trousers and helmet hair will most likely give it away.
If you’re brave, always want to help people, and aren’t afraid of getting hot and sweaty – all while being a real life superhero, then becoming a firefighter is one of the most exhilarating jobs you can have. It’s not all about the adrenaline you get out of it though. It’s a very hard job to have, and it can be not only physically, but mentally draining too. Having said that, you have the ability to help people that are in desperate need. Your job is to protect them, and save their lives in the event of an emergency.
You will be expected to wear heavy duty overalls that are, of course, fire resistant. Along with a bottle of oxygen secured onto your back that you then breathe in through the headgear and mask.
If you’ve always seen yourself as the crime fighter, then why not have a career as a police officer? Your job is to make sure the area you are living in is safe and secure, with any harm and dangers out of the way. This can mean anyone who is breaking the law by participating in illegal activity or causing harm to someone. You will have to know how to adapt to different situations and deal with a whole variety of personalities.
Along with the smart uniform, you will be expected to wear a bullet and stab proof vest at all times, while carrying around a baton and handcuffs in the event of having to make an arrest and protecting yourself. Sometimes you will be required to carry a gun, but this depends on the training that you have had.
