Job Opportunity – Mail Carrier. Being a mail carrier is another job that does not require a degree. It’s a good job with good benefits. This video paints it in kind of a negative light but I happen to personally know people who work for the United States Postal Service and it’s more positive than she portrays. Also, while it is true that the internet has decreased the volume of mail, it will be a long time before physical mail goes away completely if it ever does. The post office is trying to find ways to update their offerings to keep up with changing technologies. They’re also working with Amazon to ship packages.
One of the greatest unrecognized services that a mail carrier performs is keeping an eye on the community. They have reported dangerous situations. People needing help and even suspicious circumstances that have lead to the discovery of people who died in their homes. That’s not in their job description but it is some of what they do.
