Licensing Requirements | Jobs That Need Licenses | BusinessNewsDaily.com
You already know you need a license drive a tractor-trailer, but did you know that nearly one in three occupations in the United States now need a license?
In its new report, called “License to Work,” the group details dozens of occupations you may not know need licensing. IJ’s Angela C. Erickson highlighted 10 surprising occupations that need licenses.
Makeup Artist– “Makeup artists are licensed in 36 states which consistently require three to nine months of education and experience, two exams and an average of $116 in fees to get a license,” Erickson said. “In several states, an exception is made for make-up artists working in theaters, while those in salons, spas or making house calls are required to be licensed.”
Security Guard– “Security guards are currently licensed in 37 states. Michigan‘s barriers are the most onerous, requiring an applicant to be at least 25 years old, have three years of training and pay $200 in fees, but those requirements may soon be removed in regulatory reforms sweeping through the state,” she said.
Auctioneers– “Auctioneers are licensed in 33 states, with requirements varying from just a $15 fee in Hawaii to $650 in fees, two exams and over two years lost to education and an apprenticeship in Tennessee. Auctioneers are another occupation Michigan is considering deregulating,” said Erickson.

“Only one marriage I regret. I remember after I got that marriage license I went across from the license bureau to a bar for a drink. The bartender said, ‘What will you have, sir?’ And I said, ‘A glass of hemlock.’” – Ernest Hemingway
