"What Kind of Work Do They Do?"

The notoriety of MTV's Jersey Shore and the appearances of some of this reality show's characters on other shows and in TV Commercials raises interest. The general interest of a large group of Americans in the 2010s is often in the types of jobs the 8 housemates on Jersey Shore hold  - and whether they actually work at all.

This may be a point of contention particularly with the unemployed of the region and those whose Unemployment Benefits are running out or have run out just short of current renewal legislation.

The Jersey Shore characters likely receive payment through their MTV Jersey Shore contracts, but what else do they do for a living? In the future, will they earn their own individual TV shows or movie contracts? How about the legal situations that some of the characters are amassing - how will these affect the stars of the show, their futures, and the popularity of Seaside Heights (Seasons 1 & 3) and other nearby locations?It's all entertainment of a sort and the industries most successful in Seaside Heights are Entertainment and Tourism-related business.

After viewing the television show that often centers on Seaside Heights NJ, some people are wondering if there are any jobs in any of the Jersey shoreline cities and if anyone really works in any of them. I decided to find out what occupations they hold and what jobs and careers are available on the New Jersey shoreline.

The Crew of Jersey Shore, Seasons 1-3:

  • Angelina Pivarnick. New York City bartender.
  • Jenni Farley. NYC graphic designer and club promoter.
  • Michael "The Situation" Sorrentino. Assistant manager of a fitness center somewhere in New York. Appeared on Dancing With the Stars for 4 weeks (I saw two of them).
  • Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi. Studied to be a veterinary technician. Also does pistachio commercials that I have viewed.
  • Paul DelVecchio. Disc Jockey.
  • Ronnie Ortiz-Magro. Unknown.
  • Sammi Giancola. Unknown.
  • Vinny Guadagnino. Trying to be an actor. Failing that, law school.
  • Deena Nicole Cortese. Unknown. Season 3.

About 50% have occupations outside of Jersey Shore, mostly in NYC.

If anyone has additional employment information on the Jersey Shore stars, feel free to post it in the Comments section at the end of this Hub.

      As the Hapless Househusband I discovered the Jersey Shore while ironing one day. My jaw dropped as I got hooked into their crazy world. I felt like an anthropologist observing the rituals of a very different tribe!

      I ended up ironing everything in sight...
