I’ve talked about having a lot of jobs in past posts, the most memorable one being 10 Things Most People Don’t Know About Me.
I’ve been a cashier, a title clerk, an inventory auditor, an order puller, a server, a babysitter, a bookkeeper, a sales associate, a book binder, and a treatment coordinator. I’ve answered customer complaint calls, added up payroll, dispatched maintenance workers, unloaded trucks, scanned outgoing packages, filed paperwork and helped countless people with whatever they needed.
The one job I can honestly say I hated was being a server. Never again will I do that job. I have a lot of experience in a lot of different things and I think it’s awesome. I don’t regret jumping around from job to job. I know employers prefer someone who is more reliable and loyal but I think if they really value their employees maybe people will be more apt to stay.
I need to be challenged to stay in a position for a long time. If I’ve learned all there is to learn and there isn’t anywhere to go after that I just lose interest and only stay for as long as I can stand it. Then I move on. I do hope to finally find a career one day that will hold my attention for the rest of my life but knowing me I don’t think that will happen. I think the best job for me will have to do with writing and flexibility. And a great paycheck of course.
There are a lot of other jobs that I think would be fun to try though, maybe when I’m retired and have nothing to do I can come back to this list and try a few of them out for a bit. For now though I’m going to give being a stay at home mom a try.
Working in a bookstore. I love books, they’re the best. I would love a laid back job of being around books all day and helping people find books that they will enjoy. I haven’t worked in a book store because they usually just pay minimum wage and since I have kids that won’t cut it.

Delivery driver. I think it would be fun to deliver stuff. I mean I would probably only like it for a day but I’d try it. I would want to deliver packages or flowers, something that people would be excited to get.

Coffee barista. It would be super chill to work in a coffee house, plus I would learn about the different types of coffee first hand. I would learn to make delicious drinks that make people feel cozy and happy. Plus I feel like I would meet some cool people.

Voice acting. I think I could totally do voice acting. It would be a fun challenge, even if it was for a cartoon commercial. I also think I have what I call a “Disney singing voice”. I’m not so good that I could be a professional singer but I think my voice is good enough to sing some Disney songs.
What jobs do you want to try? What would be fun for you?
