What's Your 1920's Job?
by Zoe Samuel

Let's travel back in time to the 1920s! Jobs were a lot different 100 years ago than they are now. As a member of the workforce in the '20s, you had to be diligent and willing to work with your hands. Although you might not think you are suited for a 1920s job, you have more old-fashioned skills than you realize! Sharing your work ethic, your personality, and a little about the jobs you've held will help us to place you in the perfect prohibition period job!

Back in the '20s, times were roaring, but they were also full of hardship. When you got a job back then, you held onto it until the day you retired. You would have taken nothing for granted at your post because the economic instability of the time made simply having a job a thing of honor. You would have never given up your job over some of the silly things folks leave positions for now! Examining your lifestyle and the way you view your current role will lead us right to the job you held in the 1920s!

Pull up a comfortable chair, and answer with the response you couldn't have written better. Then, we'll tell you all about your 1920s job! Ready to work?
