The other day I was working on one of my other sites, World Oldest People and noticed that one of the oldest guy’s in the world Shigechiyo Izumi had what is deemed to be the longest career ever spanning an amazing 98 years!
Shigechiyo claimed that he began his career in 1872, at a sugar mill goading draft animals, and ended his career as a sugarcane farmer at the spritely old age of 105.
I can’t even imagine being alive for that long, let alone spending 98 years at the office!
Here are some other amazing long careers.
Longest career at the same store
He ended up owning the store and now has been there for over 70 years!
Many of Roy’s customers have passed away over the years and supermarkets have begun to take their toll on his business. Although trade is not what is was in the past, he plans to stick it out.
Longest career as a radio presenter (female)
It’s amazing to think she has anything left to say after that long behind a microphone.
If you have some time on your hands you can even listen to her online – BBC Radio.
Longest Career as an Entertainment News Host
She left the show in May 2011, and in August 2011 Mary was formerly announced as the Official Spokeswoman of Edith Sanford Breast Cancer Initiative.
So next time you think you have spent too long at the same job and are ready to move on, maybe it’s not yet time and you should stick it out for the next few decades!
