I am a chiropractor's assistant at a small chiropractic clinic. I do therapies such as ultrasound and EMS therapy on the patients before they see the chiropractor for an adjustment. I really enjoy my job and like the challenges that come my way. I work with a very helpful chiropractor who will answer any questions you have about what he does. I did not know much about chiropractic care until I started working for him and now I really do see the benefits of it. The pros of it are its a very steady job with alot of things to learn and keep you busy. The major con would be that by the end of a busy you feel like you should be the one on the table getting your back examined. We deal with alot of people and alot of therapies in a days time and it can be a long time on your feet moving. But I would definitely recommend it to someone looking for a good job in a friendy environment.
Try to find a doctor or practice that offers health benefits and a retirement plan, that way you are not only working yourself silly to make someone else rich. This way you have health benefits that everyone who works should have and also security for your future with a retirement account.
I am a chaplain for a hospital. I would recommend this career to someone who believes they are called into ministry but are not planning to work directly in a church, synagoge or temple. To be hired as a hospital chaplain, one usually has to have a college and a master's degree. Then one must complete Clinical Pastoral Eduacation. Most positions require four credits. This is a clinical training within the hospital setting with classroom instruction, also. Once you are a chaplain you are not paid as well as others in the medical field who have a master's degree and certification. Yet, it is a decent living. You visit patients and address their needs which are more emotional and spiritual in nature--often related to their illness or circumstances that being in the hospital causes in their lives. People are very open to "God" at this point in their spiritual journey. They may not have views like you do, but your job is to support them in their views and help them to draw upon that as a resource for strength.
