Counter and Retail Clerks
The U.S. Department of Labor predicts that employment for counter and rental clerks will grow about as fast as the average through 2020. Businesses that focus on customer service will always want to hire friendly and responsible clerks. Because of the high turnover in this field, many job openings will come from the need to replace workers. Opportunities for temporary or part-time work should be good, especially during busy business periods. Employment opportunities for clerks, particularly those who are entry level, are plentiful in large metropolitan areas, where their services are in great demand.
