Over the past few years, I have had the following shigoto:

1. sensei = teacher
2. shisho = librarian
3. bengoshi = lawyer
4. daigakusei = university/college student

In addition to "occupation", you can also use shigoto to mean, generically, work (as in "the type of work you do") and also to indicate "the office": Kyō watashi wa kyū-ji shigoto ni ikimashita = Today I arrived at work at nine o'clock. (Please don't check my grammar; my textbooks are all in the other room!)
