I'm thinking about getting a job...
« on: March 26, 2018, 03:26:28 PM »
I haven't had a job since I was eighteen. Well, let me clarify, I haven't had a job that I've gotten paid for since I was eighteen. I was a stay-at-home mother and I haven't really even considered going back into the workforce since. I've busied myself with committees, Women's League, and other organizations. However, I've been thinking about getting a part-time job, just for something new to do. Have any of you started a job recently? What are you doing? Are you glad you did?

Now I am doing a food catering service. I do it on a small scale (only for the people around the neighborhood) so I won't get overly busy. That way I still have time for myself and the extra money always helps. Cooking is a passion so I am enjoying this job quite much despite the rough start.

It has been a while since you posted the question, so I wonder if you've found something you like.

Hi there @MagicMindy - did you find a job? I think it's a great idea, as much for the social aspects as for the money earned. I moved to be closer to my daughter and as a hairdresser with long experience found it easy to get a job. BUT I was an assistant after being the boss of a salon before. That didn't sit too well with me. I eventually became a travelling hairdresser and go out to clients who are house-bound due to ill health or child care issues. I work part-time, earn a lot less than before, but love having the contact with other people. It's widened my circles of acquaintances and I've made a couple of good friendships.


Go for it! If you've found a job, let us know.

I have worked in an 8am to 5pm work environment before and I wouldn't want to go back there. I am now fully self-employed and I get the freedom to do a lot of things I wouldn't have managed to do then. I am sure I would have trouble adjusting now.
