4 Jobs You Probably Didn’t Know Existed

It’s weird how some people stumble into their jobs. Some people spend years of their lives getting a degree and then working a job that has nothing to do with their selected field. Out of all the jobs that are out there, here are 4 jobs that you probably didn’t know existed.

1. Fortune Cookie Writer- If you are a writer, this might seem like a dream job. Sure you don’t get credit for any of your vague predictions, but if you love doing little work and getting paid, then you should check it out. Imagine that you only have to write single sentences that fit into a cookie. Sounds like a pretty sweet gig, and I doubt you would have to worry about writer’s block. However, you may be shocked when your boss decides to let you go.

Seems slightly depressing.


2.Chicken Sexer- Although this job title seems off-putting and odd, it’s really not as bad as it sounds. When chickens are born, their sex needs to be determined pretty fast. Female chickens are used for egg production and the males are used for meat. A chicken sexer basically divides the two. I think they should look into changing the title though in case it attracts the wrong people.

Run chicken run!!!


3. Dog Food Tester- This is a job you may want to avoid, even if you are desperate for employment. As a dog food tester, you get to eat, sniff, and evaluate dog food. That’s it! And to add insult to injury, it usually doesn’t pay that well. I bet this job makes it really hard to enjoy your lunch break. And it must really suck when you have to take your work home with you.

Mmmm. That looks appealing. I’m sure the wet food is worse though.


4. Golf Ball Diver- If you love golf and scuba diving, then this may be the career for you. You basically get paid to recover golf balls from water hazards. This is no joke. You can even take courses on how to become a golf ball diver. However, you may need to be careful. With things like crocodiles, snakes and broken glass in the water, this could be a very dangerous job.

If you aren’t careful, you could end up like Chubbs from Happy Gilmore. Rich and successful.
