I am trying to search for a new career choice and don't know which direction I should go. Any advice on jobs right now?
Back when I was young and of course, legal age, I loved having this one part time cocktail waitress job. It was busy, fun and always got huge tips
Well according to one post, being a pole dancer can bring you a good income.
Starting your own business is the best job - then you don't have to answer to an idiot boss.
Working online full time for myself right now is my best job. Anyone can do it, but it takes lots of hard work, no "get rich quick" methods.
However my favorite job I used to have working for someone else was with blockbuster. I use to deliver all that popcorn and candy they sell to all the central Florida area.
Each day I'll have several cases of candy and popcorn left over. The unspoken rule was to just keep it, as they did not want to figure out where it went. Yum!!!!
I worked in an adult video store when I was 19. It was funny watching people come in who looked so prim and proper and seeing the things they would rent. Sometimes really mind blowing. The store had everything from barely legal to beastiality.
Absolutely agree, Dan. I never been happier than since going freelance, despite the financial insecurity. Why? No anal managers breathing down my neck trying to dictate how and when I work. No crappy office politics. No small talk about football and soap operas with people I have the misfortune to work with. No banging on about teamwork. No need to be responsible for the work of incompetent and illiterate morons, which always meant I had to do their work again from scratch. Nobody else dictating holidays; I work like crazy when I work, but take off one or two long weekends a month plus about eight extra weeks holiday Ability to concentrate on my work apart from emails and the odd phone call from clients. I stand or fall on the quality of my work. At present, I'm standing high and having to reject twice as many work offers than I have the capacity to accept.
I also was a sponsored skateboarder and that was alot of fun. Traveling, parties, girls. I still skate but can't compete because I have to be careful of my ankle.
Go work for a magazine. Its fast-paced, exciting and you get to meet lots of cool people.
Plus you can see your own writing published!
It would be a dream come true if I could work for Vogue or Glamour!
A smuggler, years ago of course. Good pay, exciting work, providing a service for a good cause. I wouldn't recommend it for you though!
I have had more than 30 different jobs in my lifetime...and I'm only 37 years old!
But I finally found a job I love and that is working for myself.
I am an at-home transcriptionist. That means that I work out of my home office over the Internet. I receive audio files of financial company's conference calls and I type out everything they say. It's easy and interesting, although there is quite a rush to get stuff done at times.
But working in my pajamas is a major bonus!
I started a bookkeeping business in 1999 and never looked back. Being my own boss was the best choice I EVER made! Now, I am working with my partner in affiliate marketing, and bookkeeping and he has kept his foothold in scenic carpentry in the movie industry. We both travel between Portland Oregon and Vancouver BC. We could not be happier with our choices at this point in our lives. It's taken a lifetime to understand that if you follow your passion that everything else will fall into place. There is no substitute for hard work and tenacity when it comes to starting a new business. If you have a passion for what you do, hang in there! Love what you do!
My favorite job is what I'm doing now! I work for Lotto Magic as a Power Captain. I am building a lottery pool. I get to play Powerball and Fl Lotto every month on a huge number of tickets. I make a residual income as the pool grows larger and larger.
I love acting I would really like to be an actress and I always wanted to be a firefighter aswell
Anything that gets you out of the house and meeting people in the flesh - sitting online like this is great as a source of great friends and chit chat - but you can't beat a good dose of reality most days.
Anything that makes you feel good about yourself, not necessarily Mother Theresa stuff, just about people instead of banging out numbers or words.
Anything that does not make you feel bad.
Anything that makes enough money.
I have some of my favorite words in common with you. BTW, one of the coolest sites out there devoted to words is FavoriteWords.com
I'm not sure I've had a favorite job yet, but my favorite place to work had 100% to do with the ppl I worked with. No matter what you do, *who you work with is, to me, everything.
I worked at one store and it was like being in an episode of the Andy Griffith show. Every individual was a character and I enjoyed them immensely. I still love going back to that store and they welcome me like a long lost member of their crazy family. I adored them.
