Work-related fatigue: Some vocations include a lot of physical labor, which tires you. If there's not enough recovery time between work sessions (esp w/shift work), one gets more and more run down. More often though, people are working in jobs which are stressful, hold no interest for them, or which do not align with their personal values. This kind of fatigue may come from loss of joy, creativity, and inspiration.

Shift work: People whose schedules change to include working at night experience interference with their circadian rhythm and inciting of daytime fatigue.

I would add that this interference can also lesen the quality of the sleep that you do get. Make sure you sleep in a room that is as dark as possible (preferrably no windows or black-out drapes) and keep the room cool. This may help with sleep quality.
