  • Secretaries/Admin Assistants (96.8%)
  • Childcare Workers (95%)
  • Accounting Clerks (92.3%)
  • Registered Nurses (92%)
  • Teacher Assistants (91.6%)
  • Receptionists (91.5%)
  • Maids (89.5%)
  • Nursing aides (88.5%)
  • Home Care Aids (85.2%)
  • Office Clerks (82%)
  • Elementary & Middle School Teachers (81.9%)
  • Cashiers (74.4%)
  • Wait Staff/Servers (71.6%)
  • Office Supervisors (71.3%)
  • Customer Service Reps (67.9%)
  • Accountants (61.8%)
  • Retail Sales (51.9%)
  • Retail Supervisors (44.1%)
