Let me do your job — just for a day!

Carrie Moore
Published: Thursday, August 8th, 2013

I’m on a new adventure here at the Chronicle. And it involves me in other people’s business — literally!
Coming at the end of this month, “Take This Job and Love It” will be featured in the Western Trader section, which goes in both the Chronicle and Hill City Prevailer News. The premise for “Take This Job and Love It” is just that — I will take a different job every (hopefully) once a month and love it! I will spend the morning in a local business learning about the job and taking photos. Afterwards, I will write about my experiences and what I learned on the job — a perfect way to show our readers what goes on in a typical day at each business and what is offered to its customers. Think of it as a “Dirty Jobs”-type experience. 
I got the idea for this a while ago when I was driving through town after staying at a friend’s house. I noticed the street was pretty much empty, except for all the cars at the downtown bar.
“Man,” I said to myself. “I would not want to be a bartender, especially at one in the morning.”
Then that’s when the idea hit me: that could be a really good job. I’m sure it’s fun, you may get some nice tips, you get to meet all sorts of people and you probably get a good upper body work-out from throwing people out every so often.
