What's the worst job you ever had?
I'm interested in hearing from you all about the worst job you've ever had before becoming successful in your career. What (not so pleasant) steps did you have to take before landing your dream job?
What do you do for a living now? What was the worst job you ever held (and why?) What did you learn from it or what advice would you tell your younger self while in that position?
I love link building but in this case, oh man.
It was a remote position but the owner would sit in a conference call with me while I shared my screen.
He would watch me work.
I was too embarrassed to ask to use the bathroom so I held it.
I felt like I wasn't trusted.
The thing about link building is, it is either done or not. You can see if I've been working by looking to see if the links I claimed are actually there.
The worst job I ever had was doing survey research on frozen foods in the freezer aisles of supermarkets. It was so cold!
I worked for my uncle digging post holes for $75 a day with a check so that's not even $75 a day.
He paid workers $150 so he paid me half of what he paid others.
I should have asked for more money.
Don't let people take advantage of you, even your own uncle.
