These Jobs Exist

This is going to sound kind of crazy, but have you ever wondered about certain jobs that may or may not exist? Have you ever found yourself asking, “Who does that job?” or, “Is there even a job for that?” I know I have asked that before, but for the most bizarre situations. While doing some research, I finally realized that a majority of the made up jobs I had in my head actually exist! If you want to leave college with a crazy that’s-actually-a-job job, then here are some jobs for you!

 

1. Whiskey Ambassador: If you don’t want to leave your college party days behind, then you may want to check out being a Whiskey Ambassador because they allow you to drink on the job. This job is pretty self explanatory: All you really have to do is try a whole lot of whiskey and tell everyone how good it is. It doesn’t sound like this would be a high-paying job, but at least you get to travel with promotions and drink a bunch of whiskey.

 

2. Pet Food Taster: Do you ever wonder if cat food really tastes like tuna? If this is a question that you have asked yourself, then you may want to look in the field of pet food tasting. Can you believe that someone actually gets paid to taste pet food? It exists! People come together and taste the newest recipes for cats and dogs. The next time a new flavor of Meow Mix comes around, make sure to get in line so you know what exactly your cat is eating. Gross.

 

3. Gross Stunt Tester: Ok, this one actually sounds pretty awesome. On shows like Fear Factor, Survivor and The Amazing Race contestants have to perform ridiculous and disgusting stunts to continue on in the games, but someone has to try out all of these stunts beforehand to make sure that they are safe. This is where the gross stunt tester comes in. I guess it kind of is a life or death situation because if it’s not safe, you are the one who finds out that it's not safe. At the same time, however, it could be a lot of fun to bike ride on a piece of rope from building to building.

 

 

4. Snake Milker: This is not like milking a cow or anything like that, it’s actually a very dangerous job. With this job you have to take out the venom from poisonous snakes and put the venom in containers. This allows doctors and specialists to create anti-venom for snakebites. This is definitely not the most fabulous job, but at least you are helping create a cure.

 

5. Fart Sniffer: This is one that I would never want to do. People are getting paid to go up to cows and smell their gas. Why? To know their diet and their health. I really don't understand how one sniff can determine all of that, but if you want to put your nose to use, this is the job for you.
