Early in her career, one speech pathologist I know worked to help stroke victims regain their ability to speak. Later, she worked in a school district, traveling from school to school as she helped children overcome a variety of speech difficulties. Both jobs were rewarding for her, because she liked making a positive difference in […]
Finding Good Jobs
Affiliate marketing is a great way to get out of the 9-5, and personally, I hate working a normal job. However, many people love the consistency of this type of job. Plus, they are a great way to fund your business ventures.
That's why I dedicated these posts to helping people find the best paying and most satisfying jobs for their skillset.
Someone I know used to be a dispatcher for an airline company back east. His main job was to watch weather patterns and air traffic. When the timing was right, he could give the go-ahead for his company’s planes to take off. In a completely different setting, a woman I know worked for years as […]
There’s a man in my neighborhood who makes his living by editing videos. He got started by freelancing with a small company to pay his way through college, but he made so much money doing something he loved that he went to work as a video editor full time. Not everyone can do that, but […]
There’s a new technician at the local pharmacy. He’s got a quick smile and a friendly disposition, even though he’s a bit on the shy side. He seems smart, capable, and witty. This pharmacy tech actually meets most of the criteria listed by Career Step: he’s organized, friendly, good at communicating, and he seems to […]
A few years ago, I had a new dishwasher installed in my kitchen. The man who installed it was a well-known plumber in my local area. He was a very by-the-book kind of guy who was meticulous about his work even while being very friendly. Since that initial meeting, I’ve seen this plumber show up […]
In his early twenties, one of my best friends started working as a janitor for a local high school. He had other things going on during the daytime, so he liked that he mainly worked at night. He got plenty of work hours doing menial chores such as polishing the floors, locking doors for the […]
One of my friends in the neighborhood is one of the most creative people I’ve ever seen. He can draw, he creates beautifully woodworked boxes, and he sings. Even more importantly, he records, mixes, and produces his own music in a small recording studio in his house. This friend is an amateur audio engineer—a person […]
I took a tour through a mortuary once, as part of a school project. The mortician there showed us the entire funeral home, including the room where he embalmed dead bodies. It was an eye-opening experience, because I learned that morticians (also known as funeral directors) do more than just prepare dead bodies for burial. […]
There’s a group of ladies at the local Great Clips salon that keep customers coming in day in and day out. They’re friendly, fun, and great at gabbing, so that the time I spend getting my hair cut speeds by. Across town, there’s another hair stylist I sometimes see. She’s quieter, but she’s also talented, […]
One of my good friends recently received a doctorate in biochemistry. Before he finished his education, I asked him what he was studying. His answer was that he was looking at gene sequences in fruit flies. I’ll be honest—most of what he said was beyond what I could comprehend—but I understood that the work he […]
