List Rules Vote on which job you think most benefits society

List of careers that are the most beneficial to society--jobs that help people and make the world a better place. While most of us have to work for a paycheck so we can support ourselves and our family, some people have the added benefit of feeling good about themselves through their livelihood too. What jobs help society? There are lots of them. Any job in education, healthcare, or public safety tends to help society. If you are looking for jobs that help people you don't only have to stick with the nonprofit sector. There are plenty of well-paying, competitive jobs that pay well too. Although they get a bad rep because of how much money they make, at the root of their job lawyers are actually helping people. Doctors and nurses are also great jobs that help people. 

Looking for a job you can feel good about or careers where you help people? Or do you already have a job in one of these careers that help people? Help others find their true calling by voting on which job you think most helps society. Add more jobs to this list if you that one is missing so others can learn about jobs where you can help people and truly make a difference.
