THE WORST JOBS EVER YOU MIGHT NOT WANT ON YOUR CV
Added on: 17th Dec 2016
ROAD KILL COLLECTOR
With the traffic getting denser and denser, the amount of
animals killed by vehicles has increased to the point that
road kill collectors have become needed on the roads.
These people are responsible for locating,
removing and disposing of road kills.
Dressed up in old tattered clothes with large holey hats,
walking around a field, this is how several students have
really ended up, performing the job of a human scarecrow.
PAINT DRYING WATCHER
Yes, there are people out there who got paid for watching
paint dry. One of the most boring jobs ever, this job is to
figure out how the colours of the paint change as they
dry and to ensure that the paints are durable.
As many scientists and researchers need animal sperm,
there must be someone to provide it. Needless to say,
obtaining sperm from large animals such as pigs or
bulls can be also very dangerous.
Being a ceremonial guard might seem like a cool job,
but standing motionless and expressionless for long
hours in every kind of weather is actually not cool at all.
Moreover, the guards often have to endure annoying
tourists who take pictures with them.
Working for cosmetic companies, armpit sniffers are
paid for smelling other people´s armpits to determine
the effects of the companies´ products such as deodorants.
BREATH ODOUR EVALUATOR
As disgusting as the previous job, the position of a
breath odour evaluator also requires a good sense of
smell and willingness to evaluate smells that are usually
far from pleasant. Breath odour evaluators usually work
for mint and toothpaste companies.
DOG BREATH SNIFFER
The dog version of the breath odour evaluator, the
dog breath sniffer analyses odour of dog´s breath
to test the effect of their diet on their teeth.
Another job that really stinks, a sewage cleaner has to deal
with some of the worst odours on a daily basis. In some
less developed countries, sewage cleaners even have to
dive into the sewage and clean it manually.
