My name is Michi. I'm
a student in high school and these are questions are curious about. I've always been interested in a variety of careers and don't think I'd be able to do just one. #in #knowledge

Hi Michi,


According to me this can happen for sure. In my personal case my full time job f.e. I'm a Project Manager for European Institutions and NATO. However I have a business of my own where I sell crochet creations (https://www.facebook.com/vanvie.be/) which I work on during my spare time. Both jobs have nothing to so with one another.


On the other hand there are thousands of examples of people doing one job for years after graduating but decide after decates it is not what they like to do and pick up another career path.


So either you combine careers or you live them one after the other. I think if it works for you and one career does not affect the other, why wouldn't you try.


Best of luck.
Grtz

Hello Michi,
The answer to your question is definitely YES! It is all up to you.
You can have more than one occupation at a single time, or you can change your career over time.

Nowadays, when economy changes and the world of future work is forming, we already see trends like working from home, working from anywhere, flexible work hours and more, which let us employees, even those working a full time job, have the flexibility to do more than just the 'day job' we do. It could be a hobby that you develop to a personal business, it could be a gig you do after your 'formal' hours (if you have any), it could happen by splitting your time and income channels between different things, it could be creating content and monetizing it in social media, it could be many things.

Some companies and contracts will limit you, to not allow you do extra things that would be considered as a second job without getting a written approval. Such approval is often something you can get, if your employer trust you to fully do your work for them without competing or having conflict of interests.

What we call the 'creator economy' also supports this trend, by letting you get paid for things you create. I personally know people who work a full time job in a hi-tech company and also have a profitable channel of income using sites like Patreon where people pay them to create something they like - art, content, whatever.

Some careers are closer to each other, like you mentioned a celeb becoming an actress, or a singer becoming a social media leader. Some careers are less connected, and you may find people change direction completely, such as move from working at a factory, for example, to becoming a chef. More and more people change careers during life, whether it is because they need a change, or wanted to fulfill a dream, or the old profession has changed and is no longer good for them.

As said above, it is all up to you, and what you want to achieve in life. In any case, good luck!

Absolutely. My wife is a perfect example of this. She went to college for business and is now and HR manager for a local company. However she was always interested in working in a salon. Upon graduating she went to cosmetology school and now does both jobs. At some point she may consider combining both roles and open her own salon.
