What are the weirdest jobs out there?
Choosing your career can be quite a challenge for most of us. Once we have taken the decision to become responsible with our lives and start a 9 to 6 job, there comes a series of questions related to what we really want to do on a daily basis to pay our bills.
Some are more fortunate and know what they want to be from an early age. Others just find their passions or interests while they grow up, whereas some just find themselves doing something they never thought they’d be able to.
Since the world is such a diverse place, we have encountered some occupations that are definitely a bit unusual.
1. Island Caretaker
It sounds to be a sort of heavenly job. We are talking about having an island all for yourself and plenty of time to relax and sip cocktails under a palm tree while the waves are wonderfully crashing on the shore.
However, no matter how perfect this may seem, a job is a job and it requires a lot of responsibility, moreover since we are talking about being in charge with a whole island. Don’t forget that the package comes along with unknown species of sea creatures that are lurking around and not a lot of teamwork!
2. Beer Tester
Beer lovers would probably shout in excitement “I want this job!”
Tasting different flavours and types of beer from the entire world seems to be an activity meant for the weekend but let’s not confuse tasting with testing.
Basically all you have to do is yes, be passionate about beer, but no, you aren’t supposed to indulge in the finishing pint after pint activity.
Make sure you keep your buds safe for tomorrow’s work too!
We are not talking about fragrant lotions that are supposed to make your skin look and feel healthier and shinier.
This job is about something else and it is not meant for the weak ones.
Apparently this job is popular in the modern world, as it helps the dead look “presentable” at a funeral.
However, the process of embalming has been happening for a long time and it has cultural and religious meanings.
4. Golf Ball Diver
If you think golf and diving can’t exist at the same time, then you are wrong.
Whenever you are watching a golf game and the balls are flying far away and then dropping in the water, you couldn’t stop wondering how they get them back. Also, on the environmental side of things, it would be a pity to not make use of the lost balls.
Well, they came up with a job for that too. It involves putting on a diver’s costume and knowing how to swim. If you are passionate about golf, that’s a plus too!
5. Live Mannequin
Next time you find yourself window shopping, look twice. Is the mannequin made of plastic or is it a real human?
Nowadays, many shops are hiring live mannequins to present their latest collections. Even if it seems to be an easy job, it is not quite the type of modelling you are expecting. If you can stand still for hours and hours, then this is something you can do, but if you are restless and hyper, then it’s clearly not your type of job!
The question is…what would you do or wouldn’t do for a living? 🙂
