Everyone is occupied with what is of greatest interest to them. That results in the services we associate with being provided by people in jobs. However, you will not be paid. You will perform the services out of love and joy.
People are industrious because being active, accomplishing goals, and serving others brings them bliss. Their work is recreation.  People act out of love for one another, without expecting compensation for the work. They give of themselves in ways that make both them and the receiver joyful. Everyone works out of enjoyment and a desire to serve others. No one is compelled to perform any task. People are not required to be anything they don’t wish to be.
All occupations known to people on earth are represented in the life after this life, except police, prison guards, undertakers, and other such occupations that fit only the earth environment. 
There are gardeners, musicians, architects, counselors of newly transitioned people, teachers of children, craftsmen in all crafts, and all manner of occupations. Builders build houses for people who desire to have a house without expectation of being paid. They use their thoughts to create, but there is still labor involved in the building.
A person may continue an occupation from Earth School. Artists still paint; builders still build houses; scientists still perform their research; and teachers still teach. Shakespeare and Oscar Wilde are still writing plays.
If a person always desired to play the piano while in Earth School but never had the chance, they may learn to play the piano in the life after this life and give recitals or be part of the vast orchestras. Someone who loved to grow flowers on earth but ended up being an auto mechanic can become a gardener in the life after this life.
There are no ailments in the next life, but medical doctors there focus their time on helping doctors in Earth School to practice medicine and surgery. “Many a spirit doctor has guided the hand of an earthly surgeon when he is performing an operation,” Monsignor Benson explains from spirit.  There are great “halls of rest” for people who have transitioned suddenly and violently where nurses and doctors tend to them.
Counselors or support people work with individuals who had a difficult time on earth and are still recovering from the experiences.
Since there are no factories, people who engaged in manufacturing occupations on earth find other occupations and preoccupations. Many teach children who have left Earth School and grow up in the afterlife. Some people do “rescue” work, helping people who have made the transition understand where they are and guiding them along as they adjust to their new lives. People engage in the occupations that give them bliss.
People are not required to work, but if someone chooses not to work, that person eventually rises out of the indolence. 
If I Am a Scientist or Engineer, Can I Continue My Work There?
Scientists and engineers are continuing their work in the next life. They then convey their advancements to scientists and engineers on earth by inspiriting them.
People who were scientists on earth do not become all-knowing when they transition to the life after this life. They continue to learn from the point at which they were before the transition, using more advanced technology and equipment they develop using their newly found knowledge. New principles and discoveries are conveyed to them from higher-level Minds. They in turn impart them to scientists in the earth realm working in the same field, although virtually all the scientists on earth are not aware of it. As a result, the scientists working in the next life and scientists on earth advance together, with the scientists in the next life slightly ahead of the scientists on earth. 
Artists, Dancers, Musician, and Other Master of the Arts Inspire Performers and Artists on Earth
Those on the next planes of existence are greatly interested in inspiring people in Earth School and helping them to create beautiful art works, symphonies, performances, and other artwork. Some explain that they are looking for promising people to inspire. They also continue their own development of their craft far beyond the capabilities they had while in Earth School.
Chopin explained from spirit in a Leslie Flint session that musicians gather and compose and play compositions, make comments to each other, and receive helpful advice. Together they go to other realms to listen to the music composed there, which is unique to that realm and condition. 
Chopin was having one of several conversations he had with a musician on earth named Rose Creet, who was sitting with Leslie Flint. He had explained that he was helping Rose perfect her performance. In this conversation, Chopin remarked to her, “I’m going to make of you an excellent pianist.” 
What Do People Do for Recreation in the Afterlife?
All recreation activities except those that involve harming people or animals are freely available in the next life.
When someone wants to engage in a pleasurable activity, the circumstances are available. The desire for the activity among people interested in it makes the equipment or circumstances available, without request. Mary Ann Ross, speaking in a Leslie Flint session, says that she always wanted to play the piano when she was on the earth. After her transition, when she entered the house in which she was to live, she was amazed to see a piano there. The man accompanying her was a piano teacher. When she sat to play the piano, she received mental guidance from her teacher so she played well very quickly.  You can listen to the recording of Mary Ann Ross describing from spirit when she first saw the piano and played it at www.earthschoolanswers.com/ross4/.
Monsignor Robert Hugh Benson, speaking from the life after this life,  explains that people do not suffer fatigue of body or Mind. However, if someone becomes restless with one form of work, the person may engage in another form of work for a while or in an endless variety of recreation activities. Whatever people enjoy doing in Earth School they may continue in the next stage of life. There are concerts, halls of art, gardening, beautiful scenic paths, and the whole abundance of pleasurable activities we have in Earth School, plus more. 
Historical performances are given by the actual people involved in the original events. 
There is no hunting or other activity that would terrorize or injure animals. There is no slaughter allowed, under whatever cloak it masquerades, such as sport. In this realm animals cannot die, but they could be subject to terror. Therefore subjecting an animal to terror constitutes injury and is not allowed. 
There are races and other contests, but those engaged in them have only a friendly rivalry. There is no reward involved. The participants enjoy becoming more capable and accomplished, not being better than someone else. People play sports such as baseball and football in areas designed for the sports. 
There are beautiful theaters for concerts and plays, and vast libraries that contain every work produced by humankind, both in this stage of life and the next. There are halls devoted to painting, sculpture, literature, fabrics, tapestries, and many other subjects, filled with people practicing their skills and enjoying the camaraderie of people with the same interests. Every art object and discovery is represented there. None is lost. 
There are recreational devices such as boats and motorcycles. They are not powered by machinery. The boats sail effortlessly and the motorcycles travel with ease because of the intention of the person controlling the effort to have the boat or motorcycle propel itself forward.
