Nowadays, there are multiple exotic and fascinating jobs that few people know actually exist in different parts of the world! Some of these jobs sound like a “dream job” to some people, while others may find them really boring. Yet, for others, it is a shock when they hear about such weird job occupations.
People may actually consider trying out these jobs, although they won’t necessarily consider them to be the “ideal job”. In all cases, these jobs might be good news to some or bad news to others? Thus, we’re discussing such exotic, rare, or even unique and one-of-a-kind occupations!
What are these weird jobs?
Pet food taster
Some people actually get paid to test processed food made specifically for household pets, by tasting it, whether it is for cats, dogs (especially dogs), birds, etc.
Would you like to “eat” dog food for a living? Why does such a job even exist? Well, when those companies making dog food, or special food for other pets, want to make sure the food they’re producing is actually edible and well-desired by their target audience, they will obviously need a human volunteer to give them an idea of what it’s like. Here we mean, does it taste good? Does it provide good nutrition to the intended pet, shall we say dogs for example? Naturally, not only does the dog (or a targeted pet) need to be happy with the food, so does the owner too!! What’s the point of selling dog food that has a horrible smell which may attract a dog like a magnet attracts small iron screws, but it sounds like the smell of a rotting corpse to the dog’s owner?
Does that sould a weird job?

Another weird job is a Legal Bank Robber
Would you be interested in “robbing” a bank, under the cover of the law? Wouldn’t it actually be amazing to probe a bank’s security weaknesses and take money for that? What is even better, is to write a report on the gaps to the company owners. This will help them know where security needs improvement, and have the gaps in their bank’s security systems closed and solved?
This not only considers the traditional method of robbing a bank like in the old days but also testing in modern defenses, such as the IT system (is it robust and can withstand remote attacks by hackers, including ransomware?) CCTV surveillance (camera) system, perhaps even sending a “fake police officer” to see if bank employees or managers will obey his instructions (which may include opening safety deposit boxes of clients, or even accessing records of their bank accounts!!)
Can we actually “milk” a snake? Yes, it’s possible, you need someone brave enough to collect the venom and poison of snakes that produce deadly toxins, used for medical purposes. Apparently, there is a demand for such professionals worldwide. Although such an occupation can be a dangerous profession, it does have its rewards. Yet, not many people engage in this occupation.
Want to sleep all day long and get money for this? Such a job exists! A person working in such a position needs to test different beds of their employer, by spending time sleeping in these beds and submitting a report on his experience, basically becoming a “bed critic”. Then again, you can always work for NASA, which carries out experiments to test the effects of lying still doing nothing for long periods of time, using human volunteers as their “lab rats”. What a weird job, isn’t it?
In some countries, such as China, a funeral for the dearly departed is incomplete without these “professional mourner”, whose job is to show up at the funeral, in effect padding, or increasing the number of mourners, so that it appears that the number of people who miss the recently deceased is huge and much larger than the actual number of people who genuinely miss the dead person. In fact, some of them, mainly women, may be asked to scream like banshees, cry and wail as a way to mourn the dead person and show that he/she will be sorely missed, or at least that’s the intentions of his/her relatives and immediate family members.
An occupation that is unique to Japan. ‘Oshiyas’ or train pusher works to make sure that trains are fully packed with people when stopping in a station. When doing so, no space within the train is “wasted”. These professionals will push people when necessary into the metro. So, when it’s time for the train/metro to depart from its station, it’s completely full. And because in Japan such stations are mostly crowded, the train pushers are in effect working as crowd controllers.
What on earth is this job, you may wonder? When chicks hatch out from their eggs, they will probably stay close to each other. They get next to each other to stay warm. The problem for farmers, though, is that they need to separate the males from the females, considering that when they grow up, female chicks become adult chickens whose main purpose is to lay eggs. This is where the chicken sexer plays his role, by identifying the male and female chicks. Plus, this occupation can’t be considered to be a low-skilled profession. For a person to become qualified for this position, he/she needs to undergo several years of training and will need to be at least 98% accurate while sorting around 700 chicks per hour! Not an easy job after all! Would you like to occupy such a weird job?
Keeper of the Cup (The Stanley Cup)
Most likely this is a truly unique and weird job. The person who works in this position will need to guard the above-mentioned trophy, which is awarded on an annual basis to the team that wins the season within the National Hockey League in the USA. The Keeper has to travel along with the trophy wherever it goes, and always keep a close eye on it since the Stanley Cup is a one-of-kind trophy that’s literally and metaphorically irreplaceable should it get stolen or destroyed! Fancy this job? Get ready to be a “24/7 eternal bodyguard” for this Cup! Until you’re relieved of duty or retired.
On one hand, some of the above-mentioned jobs seem really relaxing and exciting. On the other hand, several jobs may not fit you or they simply could be extremely boring. So that no one is able to tolerate and work within such circumstances. Subsequently, it’s you who decides which job will gain your attention and interest, and is truly an awesome occupation!
