Dislike Repetitious Work? Try These Jobs Out for Size
Do you feel that what you’re doing at work is so routine you’re debilitated by sheer boredom? Perhaps you’ve been staring blankly at your computer screen wondering what kind of life you might have had if you were doing something else. Everyone goes through that phase of boredom with the job every so often, but some naturally and quite easily fall back to the routine after a period. However, there are those who can’t stand the idea of jobs that are just too repetitive. If you’re this sounds like you, then you may want to look into some alternatives that are guaranteed to give you something new to look forward to every time.
1. Events Planner. Whether it is a simple birthday party or an intricate wedding ceremony, being an events planner can test your resourcefulness and creativity. Great job for people who love working on details, excellent negotiators and decision makers, able to find appropriate venues and can generally persuade others to cooperate and make the occasion perfect. Each event will have its own unique characteristics and personalities. With all the running around you’re expected to do and people you have to talk to, who has time to get bored?
2. Photographer/Photojournalist. Events and situations happen everywhere and being a photographer can take you right where the action is. Whether you’re covering social or news events, you need to have a keen eye for details and a knack for capturing every moment to cherish or every scene to strengthen a case or drive a point.
3. Hairstylists. You may be required to report to the salon at a certain time but it’s definitely not your typical 9 to 5 job. With people from all walks of life coming and going, you’ll have enough variety of hair to work on. If it’s diversity you’re looking for, you’ve come to the right place!
4. Paramedics/Emergency Room Nurses. You certainly can’t schedule an emergency; it happens when it happens. There’s something about the job that’s bound to give you the rush, albeit not the kind you get from better circumstances. Still, if you’re the type who’d rather be in on the action than behind a desk, being in this part of the health care field is anything but boring!
5. Car Reviewers. You will probably find this incredible but people do get paid to review cars; and not just the run-of-the-mill reviews that you sometimes find on websites. You have to drive the car (yes, if you’re lucky you get to ride the latest models) for an extensive/intensive review. It is one fun-tastic ride…this is perfect for car lovers! Some generous car companies even give away the “reviewed” car – for real…only if they’re pleased with the review and if it helped increase their sales.
A strictly scheduled, 9 to 5 job may work out fine for some professionals, but routine doesn’t always sit well for some who want a little variety in their work. Just because these opportunities don’t follow standard hours or abide by the usual routines doesn’t mean they’re easier. Better prepare yourself with the right training because some of them are even more difficult and sometimes more risky than most regular office jobs.
