If you, like many Americans, are looking for a job right now you might feel a little stuck. The job market is competitive and it can be hard to apply for jobs you do not really want. This article lists some simple jobs you can do with little to no education or experience.
Voice acting is a fun, easy, and exciting job. A voice actor is someone who lends their voice to commercials, voiceovers, movies, and shows. A male voice actor can work on several projects at the same time. In this way, it can be a lucrative field. However, it can be difficult to get your foot in the door. If you already have a knack for doing different voices, you may find it easier to get hired. Being able to sing is also something sought after among voice actors. If you can sing and do different voices, voice acting could be the perfect job for you.
If you like being around animals, consider working at a zoo. Although working with the animals requires a bachelor’s or master’s degree, you can still work at a zoo with little to no education or experience. Starting as a janitor, greeter, or gift shop worker will give you a starting position at the zoo. From there you can move up the ladder, indirectly helping the animals. If you have experience in maintenance, zoos are always looking for more maintenance workers. Although having a degree or certificate in electrical work or mechanics can be beneficial, some zoos are so desperate they will hire almost anyone. If you have any kind of maintenance knowledge you will be able to care for the animals more closely than if you were a greeter or gift shop worker.
Although this job may not sound fun, it can be. When you are looking for retail jobs, stick to places you enjoy shopping. This could be REI, Costco, or even Nebraska Furniture Mart. Make sure you apply to places that you know have good customer service. It is also important to apply to places where you have a basic understanding of and interest in what they sell. For example, if you hate video games, but love home decor, apply for jobs in a furniture store instead of a technology based store.
A rule of thumb when it comes to applying for jobs is to stick with what you know you enjoy. Do not be afraid to try something different.
