At one point in every young reprobate or age unspecific unemployed persons life they must ask themselves "is there a job out there that isn't terrible?".

Now I am currently faced with 2 things. My exams finish around the end of this month and then I have loads of time off so I will probably have to get some kind of job which doesn't require qualifications. Does anyone have any experience with doing things of this nature but without having a horrible time?

Also a similar question applies for once I have finished my degree. Are there any careers that make the person happy to get up every morning to do the job in question?

thanks

edit: can someone correct my typo in the title?

It's a very individual thing. The only advice I can offer is this.

Chase your passion, don't chase money.
If you chase your passion you will have a much more fulfilling life and the money will come anyway.

Very true, i have only just stopped chasing money.
I train more, i spend more time with my little girl and me n the missus dont argue as much.

Win, win, win. Who need money anyway?

If you find a job in a decent family run restuarant as a waiter or barman, you get paid cash in hand (no tax), and the banter is awesome. It's a sweet opportunity to pick up girls, and its good honest hard work.

I also worked as a group worker in an after school autism club throughout uni. Pay was pretty decent, but working with kids or adults who go through the s**t those kids went through but are still happy and smiling all the time has a huge impact on you.

Otherwise maybe look at working behind the desk in a gym? It would make it a lot easier to train regularly.

EDIT: The above apply for during the summer. As for after uni, I think if you find a decent job and work until you're good at said job, you'll enjoy it. I don't think there are any jobs you just magically enjoy.

When I started my year in industry I f**king hated being a Project Manager. Now I love that I wear a suit everyday, go into the city, and actually work on productive things. I'm working on building a huge SEN school at the moment, and I love every minute of it. I never thought I would though.

Web developer.

2 years ago I didn't know what to do career wise, somehow coding websites became a bit of a hobby and decided to pursue it as a career. 12 months later landed my first role at a startup agency, haven't looked back since. Love my job and there are a tonne of opportunities in the field. Money isn't bad either, considering I can spend all day on the internet Happy

I don't have a related degree or anything, it's one of those careers where a strong portfolio can open doors.

You will always be happy doing what you enjoy, regardless of the monetary returns.

Also a quote I remember reading somewhere, don't let your salary justify your education.

Ive just gone the other way. Self employment ruined my life. The problem with being self employed is your always working. I never took holidays, i worked weekends and evenings if i had to. Then theres no work so your scratting about for work to pay the bills. All this is pointless if you love it i guess but theres more to life than work.

Now i work for someone else, they cover the van, the tools. I take paid holidays and when i get home the fones off and i dont think about work. As long as you find something ok and the manager isnt a dick your laughing really IME
