(Road Construction and Maintenance Worker vs Political Scientists)
First off one of the HUGE differences is that Political Scientists have to work inside. Where as construction workers/maintenance workers are outside every day trying to figure out a new way to make the roads better, repair the guard rails on highways, or even filling pot holes after a bad winter. I am not trying to put Political Scientists down or make their career look bad but they have absolutely nothing in common with the career that i am going to be working in. Another difference would be the equipment they use. Political Scientists use a bunch of computer stuff and Construction workers use heavy machinery. These are just some of the obvious differences between these two careers.
