Looking for math-free careers

I’ve read this from Yahoo months (?) ago. Just in case you were looking or preparing for math-free careers, here they are.

Paralegal – helps lawyers prepare for cases through conducting research on laws and regulations, writing reports, and digging up facts.

Public Relations Specialist – you’d use communications – such as writing press releases and drafting speeches – to promote a positive image of an organization,

Graphic Designer – create the layout for different types of materials, such as brochures, corporate reports, or advertisements. Your work could involve using design software to communicate ideas that capture consumers’ attention.

Dental Assistant – they typically help dentists clean teeth, process x-rays, sterilize equipment, and keep records of dental treatments.

Police Officer – spend their time patrolling assigned areas, conducting traffic stops, and enforcing the law.

This doesn’t include a career in music, which we all know involves, mathematics. However, if you are involved in selling Guitar Center, krk rokit as promo officer, the job (I think) doesn’t require you to deal with numbers. The store cashier will take care of the computation for you.
