Social media managers and web developers are among the top “lazy girl jobs” according to research from British social media content firm System.
A “lazy girl” job (or a “snail girl” job, if you’d rather) is a term coined by American social media commentator Gabrielle Judge who claimed it wasn’t to promote laziness in the workplace, rather to raise awareness about “toxic workplace expectations”.
The viral hashtag, #LazyGirlJob, has accumulated over 36.8 million views on TikTok, with people desiring a more laid-back career field that includes flexibility and work-life balance.
Lazy girl jobs has since become synonymous with the idea of getting paid a lot to do very little. And, for the record, men can do lazy girl jobs, too.
Based on TikTok searches, System has unveiled the top 10 lazy girl jobs with social media management and web development among the list.
Commenting on the results, SYSTEM’s founder Keith Foggan, said: “Social media roles can be a great fit for people who enjoy a dynamic and varied work environment – the roles also lend themselves to hybrid or remote working models which offer an ideal work-life balance. However, to succeed in this competitive industry, hard work is essential,” he said.
Foggan added that any skilled social media professional “knows the importance of creating engaging content that resonates with a specific audience” and “this isn’t an indicator of laziness, but a sign of efficiency and initiative.”
