Checkout This List of Fourteen Jobs You Never Knew Existed
Are you someone who is employed in a nine to five, five days a week job? Or, are you someone with a greater job responsibility and has to work three hundred and sixty-five days a year? Whatever your job may be, be it blue collared or white collared, office work or freelancing, there is one thing that’s common amongst all of us. And that is the fact that we do not love our jobs. No matter how much our salary be or what not perks be given to us by our employers, there is one thing or the other, which makes us feel that our friend’s job is much better and cooler; who frankly may, in turn, be envying yours!
However, there are also a number of jobs about which we have no idea. For instance, have you ever heard someone telling you that they are an armpit sniffer or a line stander? Such and many more jobs that you never even thought existed do exist and will leave you wondering about the qualification required to get one! We have complied thirteen such extraordinary jobs for you. Here it goes!
Body Part Model
Are you someone who always dreamt of being a model as a child, but realized, as you grew up, that you were not that attractive? Worry not! You can still be a model even if one of your body parts, such as your feet or hands, are beautiful. Yes, you read that right! There are some companies that need just your beautiful fingers or your sexy long legs.
A face feeler is another job, which I am certain many people would not have heard of. They are hired by companies that produce cosmetics or skincare products. What their job entails is touching faces to check if there is any improvement after the usage of a particular concoction.
Everyone loves snuggling with their better halves after a long hard day. However, if you are someone who has just been dumped and is trying to deal with heartbreak or someone who has been single for ages, then you may be in need of a professional snuggler. They would snuggle with you and make you feel better about your life.
If there is one thing we crave for after busting our asses in an office chair for hours, it is our bed. It provides us unmatched relief and comfort. But, did you know that there are professional bed testers who lie on a mattress and tell how deep and satisfying sleep it would provide? Yes, they do exist.
Do you feel that a sniff of your armpit is enough to put anyone in a state of coma? Well, it might be, but not for an armpit sniffer. They work for deodorant companies and are assigned the grotesque task of sniffing armpit to work out the type of deodorant that would help alleviate the unpleasant smell.
Are you grossed out at the sight of worms? It seems some people aren’t. These creepy crawlies are much useful for our environment in general and at times for ourselves in particular. Worm pickers live outdoor and pick and supply worms, which are used as bait by people when they go fishing.
You would have often questioned how common people in those stunt shows get ready to eat any live thing they are served just for the sake of being in the show. It’s because the same has been eaten by stunt testers and it is assured that they are fit for consumption.
Does the sight of a long queue gives you a headache? Is standing in a queue something you abhor the most? I am about to tell you something, which will provide you some respite. Anywhere you see a long queue, just give a line stander a ring and they will come and stand for you. You can rest in your car and get your work done either when your line stander’s turn comes or pay him a little extra to get the work done as well.
Aren’t snakes the deadliest of reptiles? What would you do if asked to hold one? Probably jump onto your bed and hide behind the blanket. Do you know what a snake milker does? Exactly as the name suggests, they extract milk from snakes by holding and pushing them into a plastic container. This milk or venom has a number of uses, the most important being the preparation of antivenom. Thus, they help save lives by putting their own at risk.
Pet Food Taster
You can’t deny this. At some point or the other, we all have wanted to munch on our pet’s food just to find out what it tasted like. Pet food tasters do exactly this and report on its taste and flavor and whether the same meets the predefined standards as set by the company they work for.
Golf Ball Diver
Do you enjoy a bit of thrill and adventure? If you do, you might want to be introduced to this job called golf ball diver. What they do is not as easy as the name suggests. They have to jump into ponds, sometimes even filthy ones, to search for and bring the golf balls back. They cannot miss even one. Not so easy task. Is it? However, your paycheck would be worth slathering yourself in some pond algae.
Sitting nude comfortably in front of total strangers can be challenging and nearly impossible for most of the people. However, if it is not for you, then you should apply for this job right away. You don’t have to have the typical model body. Being comfortable in your skin and body is the only criterion that you need to fulfill.
Water Slide Tester
Aren’t waterparks the best place to be in on a hot summer day? Sliding down a long path to fall into the sparkling blue water is the best way to spend a day out with our family or friends. Remember your first time there? I am sure you would have feared to fall off the slide breaking a few of your bones. But it never happened. Know why? Because they have been tested by a professional water slide tester.
Paper Towel Sniffer
Who else uses paper towels for other than what they intended for? Are you too guilty of wasting a sheet or more of paper towels just to keep it with you for sniffing it? Well, you are not alone. The mild sweet scent is enough to put us in a trance. Do you know of paper towel sniffers whose job is to sniff the towels to check and ensure that there is no presence of any pungent or undesirable smell in it? Want to be one? Your olfactory sense should be like that of a dog.
