Work is a huge part of our lives; from the first time someone asks us what we’ll be when we grow up, until we’re drawing our pension and looking back with relief or regret. Through training and searching for, obtaining them, travelling to and actually being there, to winding down at the end of a busy day, our jobs take up much of our time.
Whether full time, part time, or can’t wait for home time, working from home, working away, carer or career, paid or volunteer, we all have a job to do. Most people have friends at our place of work, and perhaps there are rivals. It’s where many of us meet our partners. Love or hate it, like almost everything else in life, our job is what we make it.
Bosses, employees and colleagues all have a story to tell. Just A Job contains 25 of them.
There’s a good mix of poignant heart warming tales, tales with a twist and stories with lessons at their core.
