Do you want to engage in something fun that helps you escape the grind of your 9-5 job? Something where, fun comes first, followed by a pay package too! You’ll be infact surprised to find how so many of these jobs go well with your hobby, are absolutely stress-free, and could easily be your second employment or a part time affair. Although some of these job titles may sound silly at first, but they are actual jobs that so many people do. And going by the fun-o-meter, whenever they go to work, that day must be their favorite day of the week!
Here are six of the many FUNtastic jobs that spell pure fun and joy.
1 BED TESTER – WHERE THE BED IS YOUR CUBICLE.
Imagine being able to sleep while on the job and getting paid to do so! Testing hotel beds is a serious business these days where bed testers not only sleep but sit, roll, stand and jump to make sure the mattress, pillows and the beds are of top-notch quality. They also keep an eye on room lightning and sound proofing to ensure a good night sleep. Luxury bed testers get attractive salaries and some even get their bottoms insured for equally attractive bucks!
2 TV CORPSE – WHERE YOU PLAY DEAD ON THE JOB.
With such a big demand for shows like Criminal Minds, CSI and other crime thrillers, there is suddenly a huge employment opportunity for people who can play corpses on television. This looks like an easy job, but staying motionless for minutes, and on various grounds, with or without clothes is no child’s play. How long can you stay still, without blinking your eyes and moving any of your body parts could be the only interview question you could be asked!
3 BEER TASTER – WHERE DRINKING IS YOUR DAY JOB!
‘If only I could get paid to drink beer’. This is something that many of us have wished for. Guess what…that wish just came true for all the beer lovers! There are companies and hotels that take in people who can drink gallons of beer and check its quality, character and texture. Work hour is as cool as the job description. Professionals normally work during lunchtime, from 11:30 am to 1 pm, considered to be the ideal time to taste beer.
4 TWITTER AND FACEBOOK MANAGER – WHERE YOU GET PAID TO BE SOCIAL!
If you’re a social network fanatic, then this might be the most fun job you’ll ever do. Twitter and Facebook manager is a serious employment opportunity that social geeks could consider. There are companies, different brands, even people who hire people to update their online accounts, and to generate ‘likes’ and ‘followers.’ As a part of the interview process, the employers could look into your own social media accounts to see how well you manage them!!
5 WATER-SLIDE TESTER – WHERE BIKINI IS YOUR DRESS CODE.
Seriously, this might be the only job where you are allowed to wear your swimming trunks and bikinis. And this could just be the coolest job on the planet! Literally. Hotels, resorts and travel companies hire people to test water slides to help them determine their fun aspect and ensure their safety. So what do you think a typical day at work looks like? What else, but taking multiple trips done the slide and playing with water!
6 CHOCOLATE TASTER – WHERE CANDY SHOP IS YOUR WORKPLACE.
Now that’s a sweet little job! If you tell your kids that you eat chocolates for a living, they could either envy you or be proud of you! As a chocolate taster, you’ll munch on a whole lot of these sweet treats for their taste, texture, and conduct market research as well. But there’s a downside to this job – you might be putting on weight if you don’t exercise and you’ll also be making frequent trips to the dentist.
Confucius said, “Choose a job you love, and you will never have to work a day in your life.” We are sure he must have been thinking about one of these FUNtastic Jobs!
Strange but all these jobs postings look pretty interesting and immensely enjoyable. Times are changing slowly and no longer people want to just stick to cubicle jobs, rather they want to go out and explore and find out what is out there.
@ Roh – Fun all the way!
