I may not have had a lucrative career, but I can say that I’ve had some interesting jobs in my lifetime.
My career history used to be considered par-for-the-course and is now rare even amongst my generation.
I wanted to be the first person since Robert Frost to make a living writing poetry.
I wanted to travel the world—so I signed up to be a nanny.
How I went from busser to baker (plus every other food-related job in between).
Why I prefer freelancing to a full-time job.
As a scopist, I was responsible for listening to the recording that a stenographer had transcribed and making sure that the final transcript was accurate word-for-word to the recording.
