Sinossi

In the first-ever guide to finding a satisfying job that will keep food on the table while you focus on your perhaps less lucrative dreams, Deborah Jacobson presents a detailed survey of employment possibilities that keep stressful money worries away and allow plenty of time for pursuing one's true calling in life.



Survival Jobs proves that you don't have to wait tables while looking for your big break. With frank and funny advice from an author who has traveled the survival-job road, Jacobson introduces opportunities both on and off the beaten track that suit a wide variety of schedules, skills, and personalities. Survival Jobs includes:



"Jobs for the CEO in You" (apartment manager, massage therapist, and other "be-your-own-boss" suggestions)"That's Entertainment" (from working as a personal assistant to performing at theme parks)"Nine to Five...Not" (clock in at the crack of dawn or the midnight hour as a limousine driver, a video-store clerk, or an airport employee)"You Gotta Have Heart" (jobs that satisfy the spirit and pay the bills: pet care, social work, children's entertainment)



For each job, she describes:



Duties and responsibilities, the pros and consLikely salary, necessary skills, and educational backgroundIdeas for getting startedSources for contacts, including names and phone numbers in major cities


From the Trade Paperback edition.

1.0 su 5 stelle It's like The Office, only in text form 24 giugno 2008
Di S. Watkins - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Copertina flessibile Acquisto verificato
I began reading this book as an actor hoping to find some alternatives to waiting tables. I didn't make it very far when the book lost most of it's credibility. The title of this thread references "the office" thanks to an episode where Michael, not knowing about pyramid schemes, introduces one to his employees. I was a bit shocked to find that the author of this book actually listed pyramid schemes or as they are called in the book and by the starters of these scams, "Multi-level marketing."
Shortly thereafter she suggest starting a 900 number. Sadly, i'm not kidding. Then, Yardsales? Is this really a suggestion?
Then I came across my current job, waiter. Apparently I will need to talk to my boss tomorrow, as here we are 10 years later and I'm still not making minimum wage plus tips. Try 2.13. Which brings me to my next complaint or point and that is a lack of research as most of the job write ups seem to be based on a lot of hearsay.

Based on experience I can say that several jobs, like that of the "DJ" and "waiter", are suggested and talked about in this book with most of the information being "hearsay" and flat out false. There appears to be very little research in any of the jobs suggested in this book.

I could go on and on about the flaws in this book. I can only venture that the bulk of the good reviews are friends or family of the author. That is the only way to explain it receiving anything that resembles a positive review. I only hope that Mrs Deborah Jacobson is through writing books or giving employment advice at least as this book is the equivalent of a overweight person giving out tips on dieting. Do yourself a favor and pass on this book.

3.0 su 5 stelle Gives Some Ideas, Not A One Stop Shop For Job Searcher's... 19 agosto 2013
Di JP - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Formato Kindle
I borrowed this Kindle edition from my local library. I liked the topic 'survival jobs' and wanted to see what the list in this book might look like. I give this book a middle of the road rating because it does list some good ideas if you are to the point you don't know where to turn for work, but most of the job suggestions are no better than you would find on a local job board.

This book has each of the job ideas listed with some of the benefits, pitfalls, and sources so you can explore the job further through websites or phone contacts. There is even a brief section about the personality type needed for the respective job. Overall this book is a good idea, but most of the jobs weren't too surprising.

1.0 su 5 stelle Down With The Survival Economy 6 aprile 2009
Di renato - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Copertina flessibile
On a basic level, yes it's useful and necessary to pursue survival jobs. Many students do this while in college and getting started in their careers. People who wish to pursue a career as a photographer or writer will likely need to do survival jobs.

But as we move beyond that basic level - as we begin to talk about white-collar workers and others with careers (ESPECIALLY those beyond 45 years old) - the author's message sounds comparable to a book telling you how to make the best of being in a prisoner of war camp.

Instead of tolerating this "Survival Job" economy which destroys hope and lives, perhaps we should question why things are this way. I heard the author interviewed on NPR and she really had nothing but sympathy to offer to a former corporate career woman whose career dreams are dying day by day as she has had to run a house-cleaning business since 2001 just to survive. That woman was crying as she told the author how she feels condemned to working her very physically demanding cleaning job the rest of her life just to pay her $10,000/year health insurance bill. I won't even get into the extraordinarily naive, glib happy talk from the author regarding how she should put her experience in running a house-cleaning business on her resume.

That woman's body isn't going to hold up forever to the stress of cleaning houses 200+ days a year. Then what kind of survival job should she take, Ms. Jacobson? What kind of survival job should I take if I become too ill to work and lose my job... and therefore my health insurance as well???

To hell with the Survival Economy. Give Americans universal health care so that we are not condemned to poverty for making the foolish decision to become ill. Stop the offshoring of American jobs. Re-regulate Wall Street and the banks who have gutted the economy over the last 30 years and are getting bailed out for their trouble. Where's the bailout for the middle class???

See Barbara Ehrenreich's "Nickled and Dimed" for a far more realistic look at our Survival Economy.
