ANSWERS: 17
  • Well, it is importnat, and I, to succeed at enjoying every work, but I persoanlly have felt overqualified at times J
  • When I was 18, I did believe that. At my current age, I disagree.
  • I disagree. You will get out of life what you achieve. If you set your sights too low, you'll be the best burger flipper in the world and...? Set your goals high.
  • No. Maybe at a younger age, but I'm older and more qualified at a lot. I see it as kind of degrading, like seeing the president working at McDonalds. But in times like this, people are losing jobs so times like this it really wouldn't matter if you have a family.
  • It's not the job it's how you are treated on the job as opposed to how much you make. I think a lot of people would take less pay if in the work place they were treated better. Then you have those that will trade more pay for being treated worse. So it's up to the individual. But no job should be beneath you, Einstein was a patent clerk and Tesla dug ditches. And nobody should be treated poorly at their job, an idealistic view but I am idealistic and have a high self-esteem.
  • Rather depends where you are. When unemployed and in need of money, I've done a host of jobs I'm overqualified for or didn't particularly want to do. Last year, I applied for a job with a significantly lesser salary because I wanted to change field and needed the experience. There's no job I despise, which is why I try to be nice to everyone who's just trying to earn a living from telesales callers to those really annoying street fundraisers for charity.
  • Yes, only a fool would starve to death, because they didn't want to get their hands dirty. Sometimes we have to take the bad with the good, whether we like it or not. Like the red necks say "suck it up, an' gitter done". ;-)
  • I really don't know how to understand that statement. It doesn't mean anything to me. I would only do what I wanted to do, what I needed to do and what I could do. There is no demeaning jobs to me if I enjoy them and if it's what I can best do at the time. Any work, if it accomplishes something is worthwhile in some way:-)
  • Do you mean "don't give anyone a job that you won't do yourself", or "don't think any job is beneath you?" I would give an auto mechanic the job of fixing my car and I certainly wouldn' attempt to do it myself. I guess I'm not exactly sure what you mean, FI. Sorry. :(
  • Honestly I'm not quite sure what that statement means. If "do not put any job below you" means not looking down on any kind of job, yes, I do believe in that statement. I admire people who earn their money through honest means. It does not matter whether they are white collar or blue collar workers. What matters is that they work for their money.
  • No. There's totally such a thing as being overqualified for a position. That being said, I don't believe in turning down the opportunity to make money through a decent living when necessary.
  • I'm not exactly sure what it means. If I was out of a job and I could find nothing, I'd do anything that was legal and respectful.
  • Yes, particularly in these times. I would do just about anything necessary to take care of myself and mine.
  • Yes,some people will not work unless they make a certain amount of money or work a time clock,authority problem causes the last one.
  • No I don't and never will. I learned at the age of 16 when working in a restaurant at $2.75 per hour my time was worth 10 times that. So I started my own company at the age of 17 and became a millionaire by the age of 25, read my profile if you wish. It's not about working hard, it's about working smart!!! How many hard working people do you know that work their butt off and barely get by.
