Jeon's Top Five Most Interesting Professions

from Jeon Francis, Office Manager

Writer Oscar Wilde once said. “The best way to appreciate your job is to imagine yourself without one.”

At one time or another, all of us have questioned why we chose the profession we’re in. Whether it be a paying job or one that we volunteer our time, the daily stresses and challenges of any career choice can sometimes leave one longing for another path.

However, before you make the turn, think hard and consider the alternatives! Enjoy our top five list of fun, interesting and just flat out weird professions found around the world!

5. Fortune Cookie Writer - Yes, we've all wondered who the heck writes those fortunes in English!

4. Ostrich Babysitter - Apparently someone gets to sit in a field full of ostrich and make sure that they didn't peck each other to death or get stolen. Any job where you can sit down, read a book and do absolutely no work is always a plus, but I have heard that these birds' behavior can get a little aggressive.

3. Odor Tester - This one is pretty odd, but some chemist has to make sure that all of those deodorants and anti-perspirants are operating properly to keep their users free of funk

2. Waste Station/Water Treatment Worker - Maybe more dirty than weird, but anytime someone has to deal with other peoples crap (literally) I think you can classify it as a weird job. Let us just take a minute to think about the things that go down our toilets and have a moment of silence for these brave men and women.

1. Chicken Sexer - Going through baby chicks and separating them according to sex. I hear this job is pretty easy, if you just play bad 80's music and set things up like a 5th grade dance, they separate themselves.
