In other words, I have had many a job, but doesn't the alliteration make it sound so much more fun?
I love trying out new opportunities, learning skills, and adding to my resume. Just the other day, I was able to attend a free Virtual Conference to add a new "badge" to my collection. I enjoy working and I am proud to be able to help ease the fiscal burden in my household whenever I can. Having children definitely complicates my mission and I always want to make sure that I am there for them and providing them the time and attention that they need as well, which means that some positions that I have just don't fit my current lifestyle, but I am thrilled to have experienced them.
"Why are you sharing this?"
Society asks teenagers to pick a career path often before they even have a chance to explore what is out there. I hope by sharing my unorthodox path to pique the interest of anyone looking for a change or just starting out.
"But how many different positions could you have possibly tried?"
In this case, I am specifically talking about job titles and their tasks that I was paid to complete. Yes, real live dollars could make their way to your pocket in these positions, or at least it worked for me. (I make no promises.) While I have had many different positions, you might notice that they seem to cluster around a few different fields: education, theatre, sales, and marketing. I have also found some of these positions contain overlap between these areas. Here are the titles and a little introduction to these opportunities.
Education - As of 2021, I completed my second M.A. in education which does help, however my earliest venture into this field was in 2004.
Theatre - Yes, really and I did not go to L.A. or New York.
Sales - They say everyone is selling something. I will delve into these deeper in future posts. Suffice it to say, things and services were provided and money was paid.
Marketing - These creative positions plant the idea for future sales in a target audience for a particular client.
This is just my experience thus far. I am hoping to share more about this variety of opportunities and one day I hope to add writer to my list. Maybe even blogger???
Day 2 of 30 complete! Time to go wash the babies and relax with a few episodes of Below Deck which contains other fun gigs that maybe I'll try one day...
