I'm out just to find ideas on what types of jobs there are out there that require, or maybe I should, say, allow you to take care of people. I can think of a few, like nursing homes, regular nursing, etc. But I'm sure there are a lot of different jobs out there, where you can bless people by listening to them and helping them through something.
Do you have a job where you feel you are able to "bless" others? What is it? Describe how you feel you take care of others.
Please post!!! :)
I "bless" sales reps with my awesome knowledge about our products. Does this count? :)
Civil Service is making the government work, if you are a caring person you can really make a difference for the people you come in contact with. It comes with the same headaches nursing comes with, bureaucracy, but it usually has good benefits, and better hours.
So many agencies and so many missions to choose from!
teacher, pastor, kindergardener, psychologist, coach of almost anything, community worker
any job that deals with people and is underpaid is usual a blessing to somebody :)
My parents, now retired, had altruistic jobs (pastor and teacher of difficult teens) My mom burned out in her early fifties and had a second small career working for our local MP. The reward for their work were a regular income (and not a bad one once they had reached a certain age) a good pension and most of all some great success stories of kids they rescued from a life at the bottom of society (my mom) or of refugees they helped get political asylum (my dad). They still have friends all over the world.
Insurance adjuster - I know some will disagree with that, but when I was one, I had many people crying on my shoulder, comforting them and holding their hand, etc. after their time of crisis. I was a property adjuster as well as an auto adjuster for a short while, so you are dealing with people who had some sort of catastrophic damage to their homes, cars, and if in an accident, possible injuries to themselves or others. A good adjuster will look out for the policyholder and get them everything they are entitled to under the policy... they are not just out to "save the company money" which I know is what most people think about adjusters.
I frequently "bless" people who have made bad decisions, people who have gotten cheated by others, people who are dealing with the deaths of relatives, people who are planning what will happen when they themselves die ... lots of people, with lots of different issues.
Totally agree! Lawyers who work with individual clients have to care a lot, honestly, much more than I expected.
And many clients don't have the money to pay for your services, which can make it a very altruistic job as well.
bless? i dunno about that. i definitely get to help, when people want to be helped. i'm a social worker in mental health and addictions.
It's not my job, but I volunteer and foster for my animal shelter. I'm currently taking care of the little sausage in my avatar. :D
In my future job as a dietitian I will help people get to their goal weights, as well as help patients with special dietary needs achieve the best nutrition possible.
I would like to think I bless my customers with my awesome service and listening to them talk with out going off when they are crazy, or angry. I also listen when they just talk. I help them figure out supplements and missing pkgs etc..

Hey I have to vent somewhere don't I. I'm cheery at work, not always so much at home.
I am a professional babysitter also known as the corporate recruiter. I hold people's lives in my hand and it's very stressful. Imagine one person being responsible for the financial well being of your family. That's me.
Best parts of the job: giving job offers, driving the visa process so people can stay in the US with their families, hand holding nervous candidates
Downsides: telling people they are not going to be hired telling people I can't give them a bigger salary despite the fact I wish I could give them a million dollars to shut up and be happy
I take care of people in a way not many think about. Sure, some call me a vampire or more obscene things, others hate the sight of me, but I'm still here to help people.
I'm just a lowly phlebotomist but I wouldn't have it any other way. By drawing blood I'm allowing the doctors and nurses to find out what's wrong with you. And it's going to hurt, it's a needle, but my one needle prick may be a hell of a lot less painful than any serious ailment the blood draw can uncover.
I am still holding out of for the cd vs. my veins showdown. It's not in your favor.
My job is customer service. I do like to help people but honestly some people are a PITA. On the other hand I sometimes go out of my way to help people who appreciate it and need it. One of our clients is recently widowed. I've been helping her get all the paperwork dealt with on her investments. I'm under no obligation because much of the stuff has nothing to do with our firm, but I just love helping her! It makes me feel good.
Often times the "help" offered in my business (financial services) is just so the advisor can make more money. Such is the way of the world.
If I make people say OMG a lot, does that count as bringing blessing to them?
It's going to happen, Spiro. Come hell or high water, it's going to happen.
My job often involves care in the professional sense (make sure the students are clean and so forth) and educating them and showing the same degree of caring whether or not they punch me, kick me or scream at me. I remember that most of it is purely a stress response due to their autism and/or having had traumatic childhoods.
I would imagine that people who work in the house part of the school do a lot more of the caring for the student's emotional needs as well as the 'professional' care.
These kids have had such tricky lives, we just end up really caring about getting them to a state where they can be happy, whether that's them managing to get into mainstream education again or being able to make a simple meal like beans on toast.
I bless people with drugs. Lots and LOTS of drugs
My oldest daughter is just about finished with her Doula certification.
A doula helps fill this gap by providing support to the woman and her partner or support system throughout the childbearing year. A doula does not replace the support system; instead, they help support them so that they can focus on loving and encouraging the laboring woman. Doulas can serve as a source of information during pregnancy, labor and birth. A doula assists families in gathering information about their pregnancy, labor and the options available for delivery.
She wants to go into nursing and become a midwife but for now this is where she is starting.
Her dad is a firefighter/ paramedic - that profession is one that helps a lot of people at many levels. Her boyfriend is also a medic/ firefighter, as is his mom. guess her birth by a midwife, her upbringing in a firehouse ( I was a fire dept dispatcher - that too can be an indirect help to people)
