Before Working: Phoebe comes
back to San Francisco in 1998 completely broke, owning scarcely more than
the clothes on her back, a bicycle and an umbrella, hoping to move back into
the Halliwell Manor (which at the time was under residence of Prue and
Piper) that had been willed to them by their Grams. Though later in the
season she does mention being a bartender in New York for a short while.
Hotel Neptune: On the day of
Prue's birthday, Phoebe wishes to get Prue a really good birthday present
but had no money. So seeing an advertisement in the paper for a hotel
psychic she briefly worked as a fortune-teller called "The Amazing Phoebe"
at a hotel but gave it up after she'd earned enough money to buy Prue's
Buckland's Auction House:
Phoebe takes on the job as Prue's assistant at Buckland's Auction House
however she gives up the job by the end of the episode as she didn't really
feel that she could handle the amount of premonitions of the past she would
get from all the antique objects at the auction house.
SWA Properties: Phoebe was
than hired as a secretary at SWA Properties. Her new boss, having an affair
with another man, instructed Phoebe to lie to her husband if he were to call
or visit. Unable to lie, she quit her job to keep her self-respect.
College Student: Later, she
decided to go to college. She went through a year and a half studying
psychology, and eventually graduated in late 2001. Phoebe then eventually
goes back to college to improve her advice column in 2005, although it is
unknown what ever happens after.
The Bay Mirror: After
graduating from college with a B.A in Psychology, Phoebe lands a steady and
successful job as an advice columnist for the newspaper, her column is
titled "Ask Phoebe." Phoebe becomes somewhat of a celebrity with the general
public, this is attributed to her extremely real and insightful advice. Her
popularity can be seen in the many advertisements seen throughout the show
entitled "Ask Phoebe: She has all the answers." Elise refers to Phoebe as
the "heart and soul" of the paper.
Author: Thanks to advice
given to her by none other than Juliet, Phoebe is inspired to write a book.
The book became a New York Best-Seller and was entitled "Finding Love."
