Consumer and Personal Services

No two jobs in the personal services / consumer services sector are alike when it comes to day-to-day responsibilities, but all of these careers have something in common. The service industry economy is based on the provision of services, rather than the production of physical goods. Funeral home workers, window washers, home security experts, and hairstylists don’t make products. They all earn their income by providing services to individuals or businesses.

Because of the range of jobs available, people with varying skills and interests can find fulfilling careers in the service industry.
