I would like to ask the members of this forumn for an answer to this question:

Would it be right for someone who came to this forumn because he is addicted or somewhat addicted etc, to take a job that requires driving women around. For instance working for a car service, even one where the women are not even Jewish usually?

You have to been honest with yourself. Do you feel any triggering when you think about having this job?

And if the answer is no, and you don't think it will trigger you, than at least take upon yourself not to talk to the women.

Obviously, a job that puts you in close contact with many women, especially in close quarters and alone, should be avoided by any man that is on this forum.

This is my humble opinion.

I can't see any reason why it would make a difference if they're Jewish or not. I agree with Mevakesh.

The truth of the matter is that being in such private situations with the opposite gender, frequently end unfavorably.
Especially when the passenger is in a despondent spirit.
I would flee from such Nisyonis.
But Parnussa is not a Rossinka.
Maybe our friends can find a secure solution.

Is "wood-cutter" or "water carrier" already taken in your city?

Seriously. Can you do car service for the Jewish community? or for Jewish schools?
Do you have any other talents? Did you ever learn any skills?

With the terrible financial crisis worldwide, even Schnoring is becoming a difficult parnassah.

...merely trying  to suggest a parnassah where you can choose who you work with. With schnoring, you are not obligated to approach women.
  Also, I thought it would be better then Guards ideas, of wood cutter, and water carrier. But, as I said, schnoring today.....

i hope that this has answered the kvestion.

Now another question:

What kind of of jobs do NOT require such interacion?  Those that require training included, but not more than a year. In other words, are there any kosher jobs at all? This includes jobs where one is not strongly tempted to be oiver other issurim either.

How about truck driver... (or as Jacki Mason calls a Jewish truck driver: "An operator in the trucking industry")

Long haul truck driving is not  good for a Yid. What did you mean exactly?

Delivery of goods, or moving services perhaps?
