If you need to move around, you'll need a job that can go with you.

While industries like tech and finance are associated with certain cities, and jobs associated with natural resources are concentrated where those resources exist, lots of professions are in demand anywhere people live, in rural and urban areas across the country.

The occupations on Indeed's list of so-called "Everywhere Jobs," released Thursday, are not location-specific. They often hinge on in-person interactions. Though some rely on knowledge of a particular industry or business, most do not require technical skills.

This is good news for job seekers who may be moving for non-professional reasons, such as to care for an aging relative or accompany a spouse on a military transfer, or those workers who may need to move in the future.

"Even if you're tied to a place for personal or family reasons, it can be an advantage to be in a career that is everywhere," says Indeed chief economist Jed Kolko, "as opposed to a career that concentrated where you live."
