Careers To Consider If You Want Job Variety

This is a contributed post, written by Laura Scott.

We all value different things in our careers. For some of us, stability is super important and allows us to thrive. For others, we like to do the same job every day, in the same environment. However, what about if you love variety? If different locations, do different tasks and colleagues make you feel fulfilled and happy in your career? Then you may want to consider the following careers. Each offers variety as standard.


Journalist
You can’t stop the sun coming up and you can’t stop the news! If you are a journalist, you will be discovering, researching and writing up new stories every day. The next day? You’ll be working with totally new material once again! If you work as an investigative journalist, you won’t be tied to a desk. Instead, you’ll be out and about finding stories and interviewing people. Meanwhile, if you are self-employed, you get to decide exactly what to write about. Whoever you work for, as your progress up the career ladder you only get more control. You can head abroad to find stories there, or set up your own company. Plus, thanks to the growing popularity of digital work and journalism, there are always new things to learn. Another great element of journalism is the variety of people you get to work with. You may be working alongside both fulltime and freelance colleagues. You may also be interviewing a diverse range of people, from Politicians to Postmen!


Subcontractor
As a subcontractor, you hire out your specialist skills and knowledge to different companies. Depending on the size of the project at hand, you might be working for them for a few hours right up to a few months. Some big jobs last for years! You can be in charge of who you work for and when, which is great. If you choose to work for lots of different companies, your job becomes very varied. You are able to work in lots of different environments, and with lots of different equipment. Each place has different health and safety regulations, so you will need to listen to this. If you have multiple skills, you can also vary which ones you hire out. So,
become a subbie if you want variety.


Teaching
Of course, teaching is a big subheader! However, this is one career that mixes stability with variety. For the stability side of things, if you work at a school you are in the same environment every day. If you teach older kids, you can just teach one subject. However, the variety comes in the students that you teach. You will have lots of different students and ages across the day and week. The next year, you will have several new students to teach. If you teach younger kids, you may have the same class for a whole year. But in this case, you get your variety from teaching different subjects. Younger children need to learn all sorts of different things, and you get to teach them those subjects.

Confidence. It’s a word that nearly every woman uses to describe anyone but herself. To be confident, you have to be secure within yourself. You have to believe in yourself. When you’re at work or with your friends, it’s likely that you feel envious of those who come across as confident and together, when actually most people are totally faking it and just as insecure and worrisome as you are. But, what makes someone confident? Is it the clothes that they wear? Is it the security of their bank account? Is it a sheer rejection of anything that resembles conformity, so that they can be happy with exactly who they are? It’s likely a huge mix of all of those things. It’s often far easier to focus on flaws than it is to focus on what makes you beautiful, which is why confidence is such an issue among women.
