Wouldn’t it be great to be able to hand out business cards that declare you a professional sleeper or fortune cookie writer?
There are jobs available for almost everything you can think of so we have complied a list of the most bizarre jobs that are proof that even the strangest skill is useful to someone.
You may even discover your perfect career path which you didn’t know existed!
1. Golf ball diver
Have you ever wondered what happened to the golf balls that get accidentally knocked into the water? It is the job of golf ball divers to wade in and gather as many of the lost balls as they can. It is well-paid but can be extremely dangerous: there have been two recorded deaths on the job.
2. Professional sleeper
Yes, you can actually be paid to sleep on the job. This type of career usually involves partaking in sleep research projects at hospitals and universities. One really bizarre job advert for The New Museum of Contemporary Art required women willing zonk out during the museum’s opening hours and become a living museum exhibition.
3. Fortune cookie writer
Donald Lau is the vice-president of Wonton Food, Inc. and writes the fortunes inside the cookies. After struggling from writers block and having to recycle material Lau put out a job advert for a new fortune writer in 2005 (a job that is few and far between).
