      You're welome, Kathleen! Because I look a lot at want ads every day, I noticed these jobs and did some investigation. A lot of the positions are not listed with the Dept. of Labor's Occupational Outlook Handbook online yet, so I think they must be pretty new. Maybe this Hub will help people look for new types of jobs!
