A medical secretary is a member of staff in health care facilities like hospitals and doctors' offices who performs administrative and supportive functions. In addition to having administrative skills, medical secretaries should have knowledge of medical terminology, the general language of the medical profession and be familiar with various medical procedures and business practices. This is because of the uniqueness of the health facilities work environments. On a typical day, healthcare facilities are busy attending to the many patients who seek their services. Secretaries play an important role of receiving patients, assisting them with filling out forms, maintenance and retrieval of medical files, transcribing and typing of medical reports. Generally, they organize the huge amounts of data that the facilities generate every day. A medical secretary performs a range of duties, which helps to streamline the operations of a medical practice, hospital etc. Being among the first persons that patients interact with when they arrive or call the facility, medical secretaries form an important link between patients and physicians. Often, the size of the facility determines the structure of hierarchy and the specific duties assigned to the secretary. In a smaller private clinic for example, the secretary may report directly to the physician. Larger establishments on the other hand, may have a structure of hierarchy in which the secretary reports to the department's head and may specialize on a specific function.

Military operations or drills require excellent communication between military units, higher ranking decision makers, and sometimes government officials. During a mission or a training drill, there may be several units involved in the operation. Moreover, sometimes, units or components from different military branches operate together to accomplish their mission. This is especially true of large-scale military operations that require excellent communication and coordination support to ensure a successful outcome. Command and control center specialists work in command centers where all communication is relayed and analyzed by highly trained military staff who integrate various pieces of information into the big picture of the military operation or training drill. It is a very demanding job due to the enormous amount of incoming data that must be sorted according to its importance, relevance and priority to ensure that proper decisions are made by high ranking military officials on time. Command and control center specialists have the responsibility of maintaining clear communication between units, components and task forces, and coordinating their activities on a higher scale. They must analyze the incoming information quickly and effectively, and transmit it to military decision-makers who will decide on the best course of action. A large-scale military operation may be conducted by air force components, naval and ground elements, which requires tight coordination and supervision. Because units are frequently located at considerable distances, all communication is relayed to specialized command and control centers where data is analyzed, prioritized and filtered to allow for the most effective allocation of military resources at any given moment. For example, when several units request air support for their ground troops, command and control specialists must analyze the information, make sure they understand the urgency of each request and prioritize the data to make sure that air force elements will first respond where they are needed the most. At the same time, this information will be sent to troop commanders who will analyze the battlefield situation and decide how to allocate their military resources. Command and control specialists also operate and maintain advanced communication equipment, weapon systems, air control equipment, radar systems and other advanced detection and data transmission equipment.

Due to the wide range of professions available within the horse industry, an equestrian can be anything from a horse trainer and manager to an equine sports massage therapist.

Equestrians prepare horses for competition in a variety of disciplines, manage equine diet and nutrition in preparation for breeding, and work with students of all ages to improve equitation. Each position in the horse industry is available in a variety of concentrations, or disciplines. Horse trainers, for example, may work in the fast paced three-day eventing discipline or choose the slower paced alternative of training horses for a lifetime of kid's lessons.
