I would suggest computer graphics. Although there are higher levels of
mathematics involved, computer work requires a very deep understanding of
how shapes create "special effects" on the computer screen which eventually
translate into movies!

I think landscapers use geometry in several ways. Aside from the asthetic
view, there are actual use of computing of areas, plant food, water
distribution.

Whoever creates the patterns for tiles would have to know about geometry!

Carpenters use lots of geometry!

Land surveyors use geometry and go on to apply trigonometry quite
extensively!
