A (Somewhat) Comprehensive List of Possible Careers for Characters
There are several components that go into writing characters for a roleplay. In addition to a character’s age, history, and personality, their job (or lack of a job), career, and career aspirations are also a vital part of the character you are writing. While a job does not necessarily define a character, it can certainly affect their economic status, their lifestyle, everyday experiences, and outlook on life. It is important to choose a career that makes sense for your characters, to fit some of your characters in positions that compliment their personalities and interests, and sometimes to place your characters in a position that they absolutely loathe. It’s also vital to consider your character’s career, and what it realistically pays, when you want to place them in a certain setting or give them a certain lifestyle. (Someone that lives in a penthouse in New York City is definitely going to need the income to pay for it, for example.)
Now that we’re through with that long-winded introduction, here is a list of careers that you may find helpful, along with a few helpful links. Some of them are the typical careers you may see commonly used or spoken of, and some are a bit different, to give your characters an interesting career path.
