We all have dreams and aspirations, but have you ever stopped to consider what career you would absolutely, unequivocally refuse to pursue, even if the universe begged you? From the painfully monotonous to the downright dangerous, join us as we explore the unconventional paths and uncover the unanimously shunned careers.
To start, a Redditor replied, “Doctor. Responsibility for people’s lives is too overwhelming.”
Another Redditor commented, “Air traffic controller. Just the thought of it is enough to stress me out.”
Monotonous Desk Roles
One popular comment was, “Anything that makes me sit at a desk for several hours a day.”
Another comment read, “Office job. Paperwork is my nemesis.”
Dirty or Demanding Work
A user replied, “Those guys that vacuum out port-a-potties.”
Another person added, “I’m not sure what they’re called, but- the people who clean up crime scenes. Like that would be the worst. Absolutely never. Ever. Ever. Ever.”
One Redditor wrote, “I absolutely love cooking. It’s my favorite hobby. I love trying new recipes and cooking for others. There’s zero chance I would ever work in a restaurant. I cannot handle that stress or the screaming or the hours.”
Another Redditor added, “Same here. I can cook like a pro, but I’d never do it for a living. Almost every pro chef I know is at least an alcoholic, if not a drug addict. They’re functioning, don’t get me wrong, but the addiction is there.”
One user simply replied, “Police officer.”
Another said, “Corrections officer- who in their right mind would spend 40 hours a week in jail.”
Emotionally Draining Jobs
A simple comment said, “Pediatric oncology.”
Another comment was, “Veterinarian. I could NOT handle seeing all the hurt pets.”
Sales or Telemarketing Roles
A most-liked comment was, “Any form of sales management. They make less than good salespeople. Corporate is always up their ass about performance. They work more, have more stress, and make less money. I would never be in sales management.”
Another comment was, “Sales. I would be a supremely bad salesman and would hate every day of my job if I had to do it.”
Teaching and School Jobs
A popular comment was, “Middle/high school teacher.”
Another said, “American school teacher. I highly respect anyone who is or is aspiring to be in that profession. However, It simply just isn’t for me.”
One Redditor replied, “Anything that has to do with media companies. So adult films, music, etc. Maybe if you could do it independently, sure, but those companies are truly evil.”
One user commented. “A truck driver, I wouldn’t want to drive all day/night.”
A second user replied, “A job where I had to travel all the time. Once and a while, to a cool state or country. I’m in. But, every week or multiple times a week, no thanks.”
Limited Growth Opportunities
One comment was, “any job where I couldn’t make more money or move up the ladder without having to go back to school or spend money.”
A Redditor replied, “Politician. I could see myself in public service, but I value my soul too much to become a politician.”
Another Redditor added, “High-level Politician. I couldn’t stand wading through all that chaos and corruption and being caught in the crossfire between the various political views of different people. Way too stressful; I remember being 13 years old and actually vowing to myself that it’s not a career I would ever go into in any way.”
Competitive Fields With Insecurity
A user commented, “Real estate. You’re on call a lot, you’re in your car a lot going from property to property, and it just doesn’t sound very interesting to talk about crown molding and kitchen backsplashes every day.”
Finally, a Redditor said, “Call center. Too many Karens and call center employees are often prohibited from denying outrageous requests and/or abuse from the Karens.”
It’s clear that there are certain careers that Redditors would never want to pursue. From dirty jobs to high-stress positions, everyone has their own reasons for avoiding certain careers. But in the end, it’s important to remember that what may not be a good fit for one person could be a dream job for someone else. It all comes down to personal preference and finding what truly makes you happy.
