How do I find a job where I'm useful?

I've found what bothers me about my office job -- my position and what I do is utterly useless. What I do has absolutely no effect on anyone, nor does it increase my employer's profit or success in any measurable way. I've realized this is what leaves me absolutely drained at the end of the work day, though I've spent the day sitting at a desk. It also makes me dread going to work in the morning because I could not feel more like a cog in the machine. What are some jobs where I can actually feel useful or needed, or feel like I'm contributing to society? [more inside]

Looking for a non-office job where I can take pride in my work and not deal with too many people.

What are some jobs that are "out in the world" (i.e. not in an office) that don't involve lots of interaction with people? [more inside]
