Is a Live-In Impact Job Right For You?

When it comes to using your skills for good, there are a ton of different routes you can take. You can dabble in the social impact space as a freelancer, work full-time, or go full-on balls-to-the-wall and get a live-in job.

Here are some examples of live-in jobs in the social impact world:

  1. House parent at a youth housing center

  2. End-of-life caregiver

  3. Nurse or health aid for those with chronic diseases or disabilities

  4. Full-time farm hand

Is one of these jobs right for you? Grab a pen and paper, cause you know what we gotta do next: pro-con this heck out of this sitch.

Pros of a live-in job:

  1. Save a ton of $$$ on your living expenses. These kinds of jobs usually come with free or significantly reduced housing costs, which is a big pro in this economy.

  2. Foster strong relationships. Whether you’re working with youth, the elderly, or anywhere in between, you will really get to know the people you serve at a live-in job. It might be the best way to experience the direct impact of your work! Fostering these relationships may also have a big impact on your personal and professional fulfillment.

  3. You’ve got tons of consistency. Live-in jobs operate on predictable routines and schedules. If you crave consistency, this could be a great option for you.

Cons of a live-in job:

  1. Limited privacy and personal time. It can be hard to know when the job ends and your life begins in these situations. You’ll need to get really good at setting boundaries to maintain your personal life.

  2. These jobs are emotionally demanding. You’ve got to have grit to survive in these jobs, especially when you’re acting as the support system for vulnerable people, such as youth in crisis or elderly patients.

  3. They aren’t the most lucrative careers. Salaries range, but most live-in jobs cap out at around $40,000 per year (but don’t forget that your housing expenses are likely covered).

Does a live-in job sound like a great option to you? Check out this job as a house parent at Cal Farley’s Boys Ranch in Texas. Otherwise, scroll down to check out a wide range of Impact Jobs, from freelance to full-time, on our job board below!
