I was wondering what type of jobs would use basic kinematics (phyics), such as accelertation, navigation, and projectiles, and how they would apply it to that said career??

Basic physics actually is very useful in many areas in the society and apparently these are fundamentals of some jobs. 

These are applicable in engineering jobs such as mechanical, automobile and electrical. Machinery needs a lot of testing which includes basic kinematics in order to determine the efficacy of the machine to be created. 

Astronomical science uses a lot of basic kinematic in order to monitor the earth and other celestial bodies. 

Sports science in some sense uses the basic kinematics in order to measure the ability of human in certain sports. Some coaches rely on speed and projectile in order to statistically measure the possibility of winning through movement minimization thus conserving energy.
