Q:

Why are jobs important?

A:

Jobs are important for several reasons: they provide workers with personal feelings of self-worth and satisfaction and produce revenue, which in turn encourages spending and stimulates the larger economy. Jobs provide personal and economic benefits. Although the type of jobs Americans pursue varies widely, all workers benefit from having careers.

 

Having a job produces wages, although the amount of revenue varies depending on profession and skill level. However, all citizens receive at least minimum wage. Having a fixed income lets people offset the cost of living, such as paying for housing, food, clothes and medical expenses. Money earned from working also lets people save for retirement and enjoy activities like vacations. In addition to revenue, jobs create positive feelings. People realize that they possess important skills, which they use to help others.

 

Careers produce benefits for larger communities in addition to individuals holding them. People specialize and train in different academic practices, and possess traits not shared by all. In turn, they use their special skills and knowledge to benefit the community by sharing information. People enjoy psychological benefits from having careers, including financial independence. Many people hold different jobs throughout their lives. They start working trivial careers during high school and early adult years, and eventually progress to more serious professions.

    What is the difference between direct and indirect exports?

    A:

    In indirect exporting, a manufacturer turns international sales over to a third party, while in direct exporting, a manufacturer handles the export process itself. Manufacturers that engage in indirect exporting hire export management companies, distributors and commissioned agents or brokers to work as intermediaries with the end-users, retailers and distributors in the foreign markets. Direct exporting requires the manufacturers to deal with these foreign entities themselves.
