As I consider a job search during during a time when many are out of work due to the pandemic, I realize that some jobs that I might have considered have been phased out gradually over time, but I can see areas where a resurgence of qualified workers would be beneficial in today’s society.
While some of these jobs are clearly not a good fit for one reason or another, it never hurts to look outside the box. Although in this case it can hurt to look inside the box. Haha, too late! Pandora’s out of the metaphor bag.
Unfortunately I no longer meet the qualifications to be a Vestal Virgin. And this is one of the few careers in which women are empowered to crash the glass ceiling.

If all else fails I can turn to the age-old tasks for women, cooking, homemaking and drudgery.
A simple update of my resume could lead to a fulfilling 2nd, 3rd, 17th career.
