Following on from Part 1, here are five more examples of rather unconventional professions:
Or sensory scientist, if you prefer. If you have sensitive hands, and can tell the difference between baby oil and Vaseline, how about a part-time job feeling people’s faces to test the effect of cosmetic products on people’s skin? 25€ per hour.
If you have a degree in TV or film, or at least a lot of knowledge, there may be an opportunity for you at Netflix. The company has 48,000,000 subscribers, so leaves nothing to chance. “Taggers”, as they are called, sit at home watching films and series all day, analyzing and commenting on the content before the rest of us see it. Pay? Hard to say, but a lot more than we get for watching television!
WHITE HAT HACKER
Or ethical hacker, is somebody who uses their computer skills to evaluate the security of a company’s information system. Their work helps the organisation that employs them to defend itself against malicious or black hat hackers. Up to 130,000€ per year.
If you like dogs, and walking, this is perfect for you! By working just two weeks a month, and sometimes taking several dogs at the same time, dog walkers in the UK earn 20% more than the national average salary. 13€ per dog per hour.
Now and then someone may tickle you, or shout at you, and it’s not easy to remain perfectly still, hour after hour. Find a good location, with lots of passersby. And when you do move, try to do something interesting to catch people’s attention! Pay? That depends on how many people pass and how generous they are.
