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.Β 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.Β 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.Β 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.

  1. Wow, you’ve had some great experiences in such varied places. Hope your future plans go well for finding something new! πŸ˜€ I think coffeeshop work would be great even as a part-time role, and bookselling would be a great avenue to continue my enthusiasm for writing, even if it’ll involve balancing two jobs.
    I agree with you about finding something that motivates you to stay on. I’ve loved working as a cashier for the last three years, but because of limited training opportunities / building my skills, I finally decided to leave before this Christmas (a few other people upped sticks as well). It’s a real shame because I loved what I did, but having that experience under my belt will hopefully illustrate to future employers that I can be relied upon to work hard.
    Hope it all works out for you! πŸ’šπŸ’™πŸ’œ

    • I’m hoping for future jobs all that experience will show employers that I’m great at multitasking and that I learn quickly. I’m hoping it shows I’m suitable for a lot of responsibility and that would be more of a challenge for me. We’ll see what the future holds. Thanks for your comment! ☺️

  2. Wow I love this idea for a post- so creative!!! I heard in a recent comedy that “everyone should wait tables once in their life” … it really grows character because the job is soo dang hard. It says a lot that you have done that in your past! I was a barista for a few years and absolutely loved it. Definitely recommend. I would like to work in a bookstore or library one day too ! Have a great week, gf! Thanks for this awesome post.

    • Thanks for the love! Yeah I’ve worked with the general public a lot in my life and it has made me kind of anti social lol I try to be as nice as I can to retail and service workers because I know it can be rough sometimes.
