All My Jobs: How to Survive at Survival Jobs by JoAnn Williams 


I made a career out of survival jobs. Over the course of my adult working life, I’ve had an eclectic melange of a career. I’ve had more bad jobs than a hooker. I’ve met more weird people in the workplace than a hooker.


My career began in the sixties with the taint of divorce and two small children to support. Following my passion was not an option. Besides, passion was the cause of my predicament. Nothing in my life experience prepared me for the workplace. Armed with my high school typing course and the additional burden of no current work experience my career in survival jobs began.

Over the course of my career, I had forty-two jobs. I’ve worked for druggies, crooked lawyers, and lecherous bankers. My career took an upwardly mobile turn in an upscale retail setting, but only in the sense that I attracted a better quality of lunatics. My capacity to attract obsessive compulsives was boundless. With every career move, I ended up working for a different category of nut.

My checkered employment history provided the equivalent of a degree in sociology

  1. Sounds like quite a sociology degree! This book sounds like a real hoot – I always love reading about “different categories of nuts” – but I grew up in New Orleans and there are quite a few “nuts” there – present company excluded!
    Best wishes on your book, JoAnn!
