Why Odd Jobs Matter
What I know for sure is that you never quite end up doing what you thought you would when it comes to your career. Even if you follow the same profession you claimed in college I'd bet there are many unforseen circumstances that have required you to punt, adapt, and reorient. That's why I love this post on why odd jobs are so important. You just never know where they might lead to or when.
If nothing else, No Joe Schmo has proven that people find their jobs in the most unexpected places. A cop injured in line of duty was forced to medically retire from police work, so she turned her passion for animals into a nonprofit organization. A successful lawyer tinkered with LEGOs after work as a creative outlet, and eventually left Wall Street to play with bricks full-time.
