По-русским мы говорим “я работаю НА трех работах”, в английском предлог НА не переводится –
I work three jobs.

“I worked as a ♦research assistant for a ♦juvenile justice ♦judge, and one day I saw a 9-year-old in ♦handcuffs in a ♦courtroom—that shouldn’t happen. On that day, I decided that I wanted my job to be about more than just money. Now I work three jobs and teach at Harvard. My goal is to go to a good law school, so I can come out and change someone’s life.”
