[This is the public version, #2, of a group swap I hosted a year ago that went really well. So, here goes!]

I crave change . . . change in my surrounding, change in my routine, change in my pockets! Throughout my professional history, I have left in my wake a laundry list of jobs, passed on a plethura of employment opportunities, and wondered and wished about a wonderful job that would last the rest of my life.

How many jobs have you had? More than a handful?
What have you done over the years to make a buck?
(Just the legal ones...this isn't True Confessions!)


Describe the positions you have held in your working lifetime. What did you do? How old were you? Did you make any friends? Do you still keep in touch? Did you burn your bridges or keep your options open?


Tell about the ads you have circled as potential jobs, opportunities you sent your resume in for but never heard from, or maybe interviewed for but didn't get.


If you had all the education you needed and all the right connections, describe your dream job. What is your title? What is your work day like? How much money do you make?

ARE YOU READY TO WRITE??? Since this journal is for our amusement and not a submission to the Museum of Art...

...size & type of journal is sender's choice. Composition, cahier, handmade, large or small, store bought or handmade, new or upcycled - all are acceptable.

...please write neatly. Add a little eye candy here and there (stickers, stamps, doodles, ephemera). Heck, even changing the color of ink is good. :o)

SWAP REQUIREMENT: Minimum of 6 different jobs. Real jobs that you have received a paycheck or cash money for. We want these journals to be full.
If you have had less than 6 jobs, then this swap is not for you.

If you are a newbie and really, really want to join this swap, you MUST:
* declare yourself as a newbie in the comments BELOW "who really, really wants to join this swap!"
* send me a PM BEFORE JOINING with a list of jobs you plan to write about
. . . . . . . . . . . and then we'll see.

No extras are necessary for this swap. Just an entertaining synapsis of your valiant attempts to be a contributing tax payer.

Happy Swapping!

This seems like such an interesting swap! I have only had 5 paying jobs though, boo! :)

LadyStephanie 04/17/2011 #

Are you sure? Have you ever done any babysitting, pet/house sitting, lawn care, etc. that you have been paid for?

thebragal 04/17/2011 #

Lyenuv You can include jobs you didn't pay taxes on. when she listed 'legal' I'm pretty sure she didn't mean by the standards of the IRS or the tax service in your country! Just not something you can go to jail or be fined for!!! LOL

LadyStephanie 04/17/2011 #

LOL! You are absolutely right @thebragal !

Ever refurnish an antique chair or help paint a sunroom? My step-dad once paid me $15 an hour to help him reconstruct a stone fireplace. For some reason we had a few stones left over...

Ummm... It seems that I'm a borderline newbie when it comes to swaps of this type. Sooo... Hello Everyone... I'm a Type 3 newbie who really, really wants to join this swap... BTW... I've had more jobs than I am years old... Soooooo... yeah. :)

LadyStephanie 04/18/2011 #

Oh My! @SpaRroW25 , welcome to the swap!

rachrnm 04/18/2011 #

This swap has prompted me to look over my resumes of years past.

Interesting, indeed! Thanks @LadyStephanie

LadyStephanie 04/24/2011 #

Thank you all for your patient "hoop-jumping"!!! It's all good, right? Right!

SpaRroW25 04/25/2011 #

My work situation just changed... I was going to drop due to added stress, but I think this may be the therapy I need.

midwestkiwi 04/28/2011 #

I am watching, because my work situation is well...never mind...no spoilers here! But, I will start it and see how far I get before the signup date; this swap looks right up my resume!

LadyStephanie 04/28/2011 #

This is a no stress swap! After all, you already know what to write about. I think it's pretty cool that we have all walked such different paths. My path kind of looks like a seismograph reading, LOL!

angeleyes79 04/29/2011 #

I will think about this. Putting it on watch for right now.

pedal2u 05/23/2011 #

Awwwwwwwwww......come on Angeleyes if I can try this one you can do it.

LadyStephanie 05/24/2011 #

There are still a few more days to decide.

angeleyes79 05/25/2011 #

Sorry, was going to do this but too much is going on right now. Have fun everyone.
