Work It Baby; Work It

Published March 10, 2015 by lynn k scott

I bet when you saw the title, “Work It Baby; Work It”, the thought never crossed your mind that I would actually be discussing all the jobs I have held since I was a teen.  I will try to keep it somewhat chronological.  Hope you don’t fall asleep by the end of the list.  I’ve held quite a few positions thus far.

  • Turnover has increased quite a bit. With companies no longer buying into an employee’s longevity and not offering anything substantial to keep their loyalty, many people job hop quite a bit. It’s rare to find “lifers” at a job or those who go beyond 10 years with a company now. If sales is involved, the turn around is a lot higher. Many of these jobs were worked simultaneously. I did (and do) work that keeps my head above water. That’s just my work ethic though.


  • That looks a bit like my job history. I was amazed to hear once that the average person only had 7 jobs over their lifetime. That was about 15 years ago though. I don’t think turnover has been the same since the 80’s.
