Unusual Jobs

November 7, 2011

First of all, I’m still laughing at last weeks comments on funny things, jokes, and funny stories. Who’d of thunk with so many serious faces in class there’d be so many funny students. Great job!

     This week, I’d like us to turn our attention to the serious issue of jobs. The fact is that if you can find a job you like, you will never work another day in your life. (This means that the work is so enjoyable that it doesn’t seem like work to you.) Conversely, some jobs are down right unpleasant – work you might not even wish on your worst enemy. What kind of jobs have you considered? Sure, we all know typical jobs such as doctor, teacher, fireman, liar…I mean lawyer, but have you heard of an odor tester or a pet psychologist. While I’m sure the first job stinks (and I mean literally), the latter is probably for the dogs (I mean figuratively).

Students: Let’s make a list of unusual jobs. Research an unusual job and describe it. Is the job available in Korea now? What about in the future? Does it pay well? Is there much competition for it? Would you like to do this kind of work? Would you rather have an enemy (forced to) do it?

Some ideas might include:

1. Cruise ship worker

2. Pet walker

3. Life guard at a nude beach

4. Quiz show writer

5. Voice-over specialist for movies

6. Sommelier or wine steward

7. Video game tester (You see, Mom. I’m not wasting my time. I’m just preparing for work.)

8. Taste tester for new recipes (products ranging from chocolate to pet food)

9. Professional sleeper (I kid you not…and who said you couldn’t make money by sleeping)

10. Condom tester (Now, just relax fellas. No sense in dropping out of school just yet to start a new career. It actually means that the worker stretches the prophylatic over a device to determine its strength and durablity.)

    When I was a young, I used to be a golf ball diver. On the weekends or summer vacation, I and a friend or my brother would go diving in ponds at our golf club to find golf balls. Two to three hours of work would earn us about 100,000 won in today’s money. Although my parents were middle class, they preferred that I earn my own money in my free time as a way to learn life lessons (independence, hardwork, and the value of money). This is how I paid for golfing and sports equipment, or put savings in a bank account.
    The job of golf ball diver was difficult but fun. It required a bit of physical strength, courage, and hardwork, but the payoff was good. Usually, this work could only be done in the very early morning or late evening when there were not golfers on the course. For a young lad, golf balls were like white gold and finding good quality ones was like finding lost treasure.

    All these jobs are available in South Korea. Since these jobs are ‘unusual’ jobs, there werent average salaries. Here’s the link I got the information from.

    http://kin.naver.com/qna/detail.nhn?d1id=4&dirId=406&docId=34026677&qb=7Z2s6reA7KeB7JeF&enc=utf8&section=kin&rank=2&search_sort=0&spq=0&pid=grQPhU5Y7u8ssZIrorKssc–182466&sid=TrfeU9Wft04AAHVGfSw

    I believe it does not pay well in wage. There all types of competition for all types of jobs in Korea, therefore I believe there are a lot of competition for it. However I do not want to do this kind of work. As for my enemey I would not force them to do it, instead I would rather have them jobless and living in the streets.

    The jobs I found were the following:

    Tour conductor. When people go abroad, the tour conductor is responsible of buying plane tickets and doing whatever is needed to let customers going abroad to have a confortable trip.
    Game tester- Easily explained.
    Lotto designer- Designer lotto in South Korea.
    Company image consulter- Helping companies in Korea build and keep their image in this globalized socieity.

    ▪ Snake Milker
    In order to make snake anti-venom you need venom so someone has to actually get the snake to release their venom into a dispenser of some sort so it can be used. The people who do this unusual job are great at handling snakes and probably get a bit of hazard pay as well. You might want to find a snake milker in your area and have him give you a few lessons for applying to do this job on your own.

    I choose snake milker among the unusual jobs. This job is amazing, but really dangerous. When we catch the poisonous snake and if it bite us, then we can die instead. But, people catch it despite of that. Because there is a medication.
    Snake’s poison use an ingredient of many medicine. If me, I don’t want to choose this job. Because it is dangerous, and strange job! But we don’t know what we happen to us. Now that would be a perfect job!
    Nevertheless, I imagine doing what I love and making money the unusual jobs.

    Plane Repossessor (Aircraft Repo Man)
    A plane repossessor is a person who ‘steals’ an aircraft. Airplane repossessor is hired by the bank and gets a call when the aircraft’s payment becomes overdue. After the call, the repossessor must track down the aircraft through records for fuel purchases and etc., and he must travel to where the aircraft is to legally steal the aircraft. However, this job can be dangerous. Therefore, a repossessor groups with a guard, mechanic, and another pilot.
    Once the aircraft is repossessed back to the bank, the repossessor is paid about 6 to 10% commission of the resale price which is usually 10,000 to 900,000 US dollars. So, the job pays very well! because a person may have up to 20 aircraft to repossess in a month. To become a plane repossessor, one must get licensed and know how to fly various types of aircraft.
    I was not able to find out if there is a such job in Korea but I bet there is one because a lot of people who live high end life own private aircraft and more will do so in future. I definitely would go for a job like this if I were eligible for it. It is well paid and thrilling at the same time! If I were a licensed pilot and knew how to fly many different types of aircraft, I would run to the bank right now to ask if there is an opening for the job.

    I found a job that sculptures food. We can call them ‘food engraver’.

    According to what the ingredient is, food engravers have to follow proper engrave methods and technologies. The sculpture process requires an elaborate skill. Also, food engravers use more fragile materials than those of people who engrave woods or marbles. So, they can be very exquisite sculptors.

    requirement -> Because of the long process, the job requires much patience. And also, it needs a kind of creativity and artistic sensation.

    payment -> According to the engraver’s career, the price of scultures
    varies from hundreds dollars to thousands dollars.

    future-> Some enterprises or exhibitions hire them to advertise and show their products. Although there are some chances to work like this, these days there are little opportunities for them to work.

    I think food engravers are visible people. They can show their talent through the sculptures and inscribe their own meaning to the sculptures. So, I think the job is positive and visible.

    When I was little, I used to have that question, “what kind of job is a ‘critic?'” (Music ciritic, literature critic, cultural critic, politics critic, and so on, in Korean “평론가.”) Then I was like, “man, I could make a living by cursing Bush out.” But, in the end, usually a “critic” refers to the authorities of some level like, professors or celebrity-like journalists. So, I gave up on that pretty much quickly. And the next rare career I could think of was to be a Paris Hilton. Folks around me had that questions, “what’s her job other than being a slut???” Not many people can spend as much money as she does, and do nothing, I presume.

    Okay, I’m sorry, back on the track. From my research, I found a profession called a “funeral director.” Funeral directors basically arrange postmortem-handling tasks. This may involve transporting and embalming the corpse, preparing suitable funeral process like, a ritual, mass as the family favor, and help them emotionally as well! It IS available in Korea, although usually insurance and mutual aid corporations accompany this type of job nowadays. The average annual earning for funeral directors is about $54,000, and the highest 10 percent even made more than $95,000 allegedly! Might want to take it on consideration, eh?! Well, this job is and will be ever-available as long as people die right (I guess, it means forever! Yay!). Would I be happy for taking this kind of career? Eh, I don’t think so. I’m usually getting tired with just handling my own life. I’m not capable of looking after dead people. So why don’t YOU(anyone who reads this) try it!? Sorry for being a jerk today, lol.

    Mobile disc jockey is a person who carreies musical instrument and play proper music as the event’s style and concept. It can be an wedding, birthday party, annoversary and so on. Anyone who knows lots of music and interested in music can do this job. It is like an music styilist.
    There is a mobile disc jockey in Korea now and because the events always exist in everywhere, and also choosing a music is human work (robot and machines might have limit, or bad taste in choosing music) I think that this job never become extinct.

    I don’t know whether this job can make good money,,,, but it’s not that physically hard or requiring high expert’s knowledgy, so I guess it doesn’t make that big money.

    I like listening to music but I don’t know various genre so it’s not quite my type.

To become a music therapist , there are two ways. First way is to acquire master degree of music therapy. Second way is to get a license of music therapist. First way takes a little longer than second way. Income of the music therapist is relatively high considering work hour. But there are not many demand so far. Many people consider a music therapist like a doctor in other advanced countries. In future, our music therapists may be similar to them.

When it is finished, they make plans how to form the contents of trailer. And then they start to make trailers by editing movie shots. It usually takes 2 or 3 months to complete it.

    A pet sitter. A pet sitter is a similar concept of a baby sitter. As there are many pets loved by people these days, people hire pet sitters to look after their pets while they are not around. Pet sitting has started naturally from the internet community of dogs or cats. For me I once had a chance for pet sitting on national holiday. A neighbour asked me if I could look after his dog while they are going to visit their parets during the national holiday. For 3days I’ve earned 45,000won (including the dog food). Actually there are people who does pet sitting as their job by remodeling their houses to a luxurious pet hotel. It costs ,30,000~40,000won per day if you are leaving your pet to these kind of hotel.

    Armpit Sniffers

    This job entails sniffing armpits of people of all sizes, who stand in a line with their arms up. These people work as testers.

    The cosmetic industry gets to great lengths to make sure people smell good after using their products and towards this end employs hundreds of these sniffers. The effectiveness of the products is still tested in the outmoded way, using human’s olfactory sense. The subjects are tested in simulated hot room conditions, in order to understand the science of sweating.

    Deodorant companies heavily draw on these people to test their products and thanks to the work of these patient sniffers; consumers can come up smelling good. They protect us from the front lines in the battle with sweat and odor, as they sniff and probe thousands of armpits each year. A single sniffer is said to sniff around 60 armpits an hour and they take three sniffs per pit to assess the intensity of the body odor, all the while using their clipboards to note down offensive odors on a range of 1 to 10.

    This job is also needed in Korea, but almost temporary job, not regular one. I’m not sure if it pays well.

    How about “Namists”? A manist is a person who makes brand names for new products .
    It’s very unusal job in Korea. In the actual naming process, Namist figure out the images that

    the 1products project. And they calculate the latest market trends and research the other

    competitive products. Surprisingly, based on these facts the Namists produce around 200 names for

    each product.

    Difficulties : When they working, they wondering about the costomer’s response.It’s difficult.
    And most difficulty is checking that the names are not already out there among the 6,000,000 brands currently on the Korean market.

    Although these difficulties makes Namist feel heavy,when the product that thdy named is a big hit, the work is most rewarding.
    There are no particular regulations or restrictions on becoming a Namist. As it is a job where many creactive ideas are required, a graduatoin
    certificate from a prestigious university is nor considered of great importance.

    How about “Namist???”!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

It’s important to speak their opinion not feeling nervous and shy , so nowadays this job is getting popular. They make people get confidence and overcome their shyness. Besides, they challenge something hard to do. I think, in the future, many people get help from these kinds of jobs. I am not sure that it also exits in Korea, but I think if there are these consultans, many people who are stressful of their shyness will be relieved. I’m sure I can’t get ths job.

    Personal shopping

    Personal shopping is an occupation where people help others shop by giving advice and making suggestions to customers. They are often employed by department stores and boutiques. Their focus is usually on clothes, although the number of non-clothing stores that offer personal shopping services is on the rise, and many freelance personal shoppers will help customers shop in whatever item they happen to be after. A personal shopper will give the customer focused and individual attention, and will advise the customer of what is in fashion, help the customer to decide what looks good on them, or assist in picking out an outfit for a particular occasion- or even an entire wardrobe for a particular season. They will often also conduct other services such as a colour analysis, enabling the customer to better understand which colours suit them best, or which colours should be worn for which seasons. I think this job can be available in Korea too.

Deabul University’s foundation is Buddhism, so there are major like that. At first, when I heard about that major, I laughed very much. However, later I think the students who study at that major will be very professional person. They are very important for monks.

    ARMPIT SNIFFER: Store shelves are packed with all kinds of deodorant – and some work better than others. But who determines whether a deodorant is actually effective? Since test subjects can’t necessarily be trusted to evaluate their own bodily odors, odor testers have to step in and sniff for themselves. It’s a dirty job, but someone’s gotta do it.

    China is the world’s most populous country and also one of the biggest countries in the world. In this reason, China has a lot of unusual and funny jobs. There are two examples I’ll explain.

    One is a ‘COOM’. It is short for ‘consultant of ordering a meal’ China is famous for its hundreds of different dishes, so people usually have difficulty in ordering a meal. In order to satisfy the customers, owner of the restaurant hire the COOM, and they order a food for customers after the brief check of their taste.

    Another funny job is, ‘Deputy of apologize’ DOA, by definition, is the agent who apologize for something on behalf of parties who involved in the affair. DOA is useful when the parties want to keep up their appearances and resolve a misunderstanding well. In my opinion, DOA should take blows well because they can be attacked by really angry person.

    Doll Doctor.

    Doll doctors repairs cotton made dolls, and old puppets. Because they treat variety of materials for dolls, they have to be able to sew, and handle the saw well. Moreover, like a plastic surgeon, they often have to make a doll’s eyes widen, and make a doll into a new appearance. So they should have sense of design. In case of USA, this industry developed largely. In USA, there are some hospitals for dolls and also in the hospitals, they don’t only treat, but sell dolls, clothings, accessories, and so on. I expect this industry will develop in Korea, too.

You should touch people’s prostate. Also, you need to study about l rectal. does it sound interesting? What if a patient excrete while you are giving a prostate massage? It can be a bad situation even though doctors earn big money.
