The ‘Prestigious’ Jobs

The hierarchy of what jobs are worth pursuing is based on biases carried over generations after generations. Although farmers and craftspeople are extremely vital to our society, the projections of a happy life within four corporate walls and the power associated with wearing formal clothes often place crafts and outdoors jobs into an inferior category.

The story of ‘my parents are farmers and I outgrew them by working in a modern building as a …’ is not as glamorous as it sounds. Outgrowing our parents can mean carrying on the family business if that’s what makes us happy and ensuring growth by making our work more impactful. At the end of the day, prestigious jobs with promotions and stale air without an option of opening the windows are just that – jobs. Crafts are more important than we care to admit and skill growing is not limited to formal education.
