  Funeral directors Description: Funeral directors, also called morticians or undertakers, prepare bodies for burial or cremation. When someone dies, they help the family plan the funeral, prepare the obituary notice, and handle the paperwork. Most are licensed embalmers. Funeral directors are also businesspeople: They prepare bills, keep financial records, and hire and manage a staff. Most work long, irregular hours.Source: Bureau of Labor Statistics, U.S. Department of Labor, Occupational Outlook Handbook, 2008-09 Edition at http://www.bls.gov/OCO/Complete Job Profile: http://www.bls.gov/oco/ocos011.htmSalary: \$28,001 to \$50,000 per yearComments:
