Are you stuck in a job you detest? Do you have to drag your feet to work every day because it’s the last place you want to be? Well, people who have their “dream jobs” don’t understand these problems.
But what are the world’s dreamiest jobs?
1. Professional Sleeper
Like the name implies, Professional Sleepers get paid to sleep. Testing sleep medicines and the comfort of different beds are only a couple things covered by their profession.
2. Professional Snuggler
A Professional Snuggler or Cuddler gets paid by the hour to—you guessed right, cuddle. It’s an intimate and therapeutic service that a lot of people pay good money for. These “snugglers” also serve as shoulders to lean on and sometimes even crying buddies.
3. Waterslide Tester
Though you won’t usually see a job ad for this position, there’s no denying that it’s an awesome profession. A Waterslide Tester travels to water parks and create reviews of slides and venues.
4. Video Game Tester
This is probably the dream job of boys and young men. But it’s not all fun. A Pro Video Tester/Gamer plays games that are created—and still being improved—by different developers to look for errors. This involves repeating a level multiple times.
5. Hollywood Stunt Person
A dangerous and straining job, being a professional stunt double is no easy job. You have to do stand in for actors when a scene is considered to be too dangerous.
6. Voice Over Artist
If you have a well-modulated voice that can change on demand, maybe voice acting is a suitable gig for you. You’ll voice over commercials, TV shows, and movies.
Still part of showbiz, a Greensman is part of the art department and is in charge of arranging everything “green” (i.e. plants, trees, flowers) on a movie or TV show set.
8. Race Engineer
A Race Engineer plays an important part in professional car racing events. They communicate between the car driver and data analyst to ensure maximum performance.
9. Blimp Pilot
You know those huge blimps you see in the sky that plays advertisements? There’s a pilot in there. And they just love what they’re doing the entire day.
10. Professional Drone Photographer
Because taking pictures from dangerous heights or of dangerous situations is too…dangerous, some photographers use drones to get the shots they need. It’s not as easy as one might think though.
11. Unexploded Ordinance Technician
These pros are in charge of mitigating the threat of an unexploded object (i.e. bombs). They share some similarities and differences with Bomb Squad Technicians.
If you have a passion for chewing sugary goodness for hours at a time, then why not apply to be a Gumologist? You’ll be testing out new products and developments for gum companies.
13. Tea Taster
Because tea is so complex it calls for a pro. A Tea Taster must be well-versed with all kinds of tea and must drink up to 200 cups of the leafy goodness in a day.
If chocolates are more your speed, then why not be a Chocolatier and create recipes and goodies made from different kinds of chocolates?
15. Panda Nanny
You get to be around pandas, take care of them, and see them grow. Is that not the best job in the world? At least, according to China.
