There is no situation in the world that cannot be explained with a Friends reference. No matter how sad or conflicted you feel, a few episodes of Friends is all it takes to make you laugh and comfort you after a tough day at work. Watching Monica tell Rachel “Welcome to the real world. It sucks. You’re gonna love it!” is enough to prepare us for Monday morning office. And watching Joey scream “Sure I peed on her. And if I had to, I’d pee on any one of you!” is all we need on Friday nights to remind us of our friends on whom we would gladly pee to save their lives. All the Friends characters have a special place in our hearts and we can’t express our love for them in enough words.
Freelance Jobs for each Friends Characters:
If you have grown up watching the BEST TV SHOW of all time (like us), Ross, Chandler, Joey, Monica, Rachel and Phoebe are not just fictional characters to you These friends characters are our own. This train of thought recently led us to wonder what if our favourite Friends characters were looking for a freelance job and came to us? Being a freelance marketplace, we help all our freelancers connect with relevant businesses and get them more work. That is our speciality. And if the Friends characters came to us, we would get each of them a freelance project that would match their skill sets. Let’s start with the nerd and our personal favourite – Ross
Ross – the freelance writer
Ross is smart, intelligent, diligent, and perhaps the one and only character on Friends to have clearcut career goals and an erudite approach to life. The other Friends characters constantly make fun of how Ross corrects everyone’s English or how boring his long, nerdy monologues are.
But that is the kind of person you would want to hire as a freelance writer – someone who knows what he/she is talking about AND understands grammar, right? We can easily picture Ross as a freelance writer penning insightful blogs and articles for scholarly sites, helping educate your readers.
What more? Ross also keeps dabbling in various other activities from mime to bagpipes to karate. This makes us wonder if he can do also create fun video tutorials showing people how to learn an instrument or an art form. Just kidding! After the bagpipe debacle, we’d be sure not to offer him that job, EVER!
Chandler – the stand-up comedian
We bet you can’t remember what Chandler did for a living! Do not, for the love of God, say this:
Chandler had a job in ‘statistical analysis and data reconfiguration’, or something along those lines. But what we love about Chandler is his spot-on sarcasm that never fails to make us laugh. If Chandler came to us looking for a freelance job, we would provide him with a couple of options.
a.) Chandler – the freelance stand-up comedian
No argument here! Chandler’s jokes are the highlight of the show and we would pay our entire month’s salary to hear him make fun of the recent world events. Or he could just take classes on sarcasm 101. Here is some proof that he would kill these classes: Chandler teaches sarcasm 101.
b.) Chandler – the script-writer
Another great career idea for Chandler would be to work as a storyboard animator or scriptwriter. His sense of humour and quick thinking will stand him in good stead in these professions.
Joey – the voice-over artist
We are sure everyone would love to hire Joey as a voice-over artist. He was a lead actor on ‘Days of our lives’ and he definitely has the panache and flair for it. But most importantly it is for his Mount Tibidabo story. Remember that? “Years ago when I was backpacking across western Europe…”
Monica – the food blogger
Monica has two enduring passions in life – organising things and cooking food. That makes her an excellent candidate for – drumrolls – a food blogger. She could also write blogs on how to better organise things and manage projects.
Whatever Monica does, she does it amazingly. And we would love to have her onboard as a Freelancer with us. Wouldn’t you?
Rachel – the stylist
Rachel has always been a late bloomer. For a long time, she’s a lost soul trying to figure out what she wants in life until she gets the job as a personal assistant in a fashion company. As a freelancer, we would be happy to provide Rachel with an opportunity to work with media agencies on their ad shoots. She could also work with hi-profile events, weddings, and brands as a freelance stylist. She would be an amazing freelancer, as long as her job doesn’t involve making coffee.
Phoebe – the singer, song-writer
Of all the Friends characters, if there’s one who would survive easily as a freelancer, it has to be Phoebe Buffay. The eccentric wild child that she is, Phoebe has tried everything – from being a masseuse to teaching French and the guitar to Joey. Could you beat this:
It’s hard to choose a particular career for Phoebs. But if we had to, we would send her projects that involve her singing and songwriting skills. The world cannot have enough of smelly cat and her ilk! Phoebe could also, potentially, be a famous freelance radio artist doing jingles, voice-overs, songs and more. Now that would be a real treat!
We would assign freelance work to all the friends characters if they were looking for gigs, and (oh yes) if they were real. And these are our picks! If you have any alternate careers picked out for these amigos then write in and tell us in the comments section! But it is safe to say, we don’t think we missed out on much! Did we?
