A blogging friend made a short list of things she knew I’ve done to make a living and it made think of all the things that I’ve done with my life from employment, to hobbies I’ve had over the years. So I thought for fun I’d post some lists I’m not naming employers since this isn’t a resume.
Employment the things that sustained me over the years. I have frequently held down multiple jobs so this list will be a bit long. They’re not in any particular order.
- The first paying job at 10 years old… Placing business cards advertising a roofing company door to door.
- Computer Operator Dad’s accounting firm (back in days prior to desk top computers)
- Professional Musician (I’ve touched on this a bit already)
- Clerk, Shift Supervisor, Store Manager, Franchisee. Retail from gas stations and c-stores to mall outlets.
- Drywall Taper
- Supervisor for a Cleaning Service.
- Laboratory Technician
- Sound and Video Technician
- Cab Driver (I know whoda thunk that one)
- Flower Delivery man
- Insurance Agent
- Security Guard
- Motor Club Dispatcher
- Cab Dispatcher
- Foundry worker
- Car Jockey
- Auto Detailer
The most experience in any field is retail (20 years), followed by law enforcement (12 years ). I have never worked in food/beverage or medical, but there’s still time… 😉
Hobbies, after all with all the long hours working a man has to have his recreations…
- Model building (I included paying jobs a kid so why not hobbies)
- Model Railroading
- Ham/CB radio
- Guitar, Bass,Tenor Banjo, Dulcimer, Penny Whistle (Yes a hobby can be a job too.. :))
- Society of Creative Anachronisms
- model rockets
- sketching, charcoal, watercolors
- Frisbee 😉
So what kind of jobs have you done, still do? Hobbies?
