If you are looking for reasons you shouldn’t be an art student of study humanities, this is not the post for you. Most of these jobs were either for fun or before I even graduated high school. I guess if anything the “bad ones” would be reasons to finish high school.
I recently took a personality test for a Bible study I’m in. It was the online free version of Myers-Briggs. If you don’t know already, I’m an INFP/ENFP.
|Great Organization and Program|
What this all means is that I’m crazy, love people, love excitement, and most everything in life is beautiful to me…I’m also fiercely independent and a free spirit.
There’s an online ENFPs group I just joined and we are talking about our jobs. And since we all tend to be free spirits, its an interesting topic.
I thought that in addition to my resume post it would be fun to have an odd jobs post about all the odd (and even bad jobs) I’ve had as they all shape who I am.
Odd Random and just plain bad jobs
*In no particular order*
*In no particular order*
14. US-Brazil Connect – I taught English in Brazil for a month this pas summer.
13. Hotel Maid at a hotel where hourlys and weeklies were more common than vacationers and travelers – cleaned up a Crank lab and and hid under the pool during drug deals. I’m not sure that this one should be on line but I learned a lot about people and poverty. This was my first job and a real eye opener. They only get better from here.
