In brief: Almost anything

Being colorblind should not limit a person much in life - even some famous artists have been colorblind! the only restriction i can think of is that colorblind people are not allowed to get a commercial driver's license, so cannot become a professional trucker, but otherwise colorblind people can usually learn to recognize traffic light signals and drive a car without difficulty.

In brief: Most are possible

It is easier to name careers for which color deficiency might be a barrier. These would include police work pilots, painters, artists, agricultural produce graders, some types of electronic assembly work, histopathologists, and anything requiring subtle color distinctions.
This leaves almost all other occupations which probably is 99% of all the jobs out there.
