14 Unique Jobs You’ve Never Heard Of

What do you do for a living? What do your friends and family do for work? The world is full of jobs and overall most people choose a safe, traditional career path. But what if you decided to think outside of the box? What if you choose to do something that you actually enjoyed? What if when you told people what you do, they said, “You do what?!”

It’s easy to expand your job search to include unique jobs you’ve never heard of. The best place to start is to learn about some of the different unique job options that are available to you. Sometimes the best way to find a unique job is to ask yourself about what you enjoy doing? Then try to figure out if you can do it for a living. If you spend money on something fun like video games, shooting guns, comic books, coffee, rock climbing, or topographic maps then there is also somebody who is making money creating, selling, or doing those same things. That person could be you!

If you don’t want to settle into a life as a waiter, accountant, or farmer then start to expand your job search to include unique jobs like:

  1. Virtual Assistant
  2. Gravedigger
  3. Aromatherapist
  4. Doula
  5. Hotel Engineer
  6. Cirque Du Soleil Performer
  7. Ocularist
  8. User Experience Designer
  9. Cartographer
  10. Adventure Film Maker
  11. Ethical Hacker
  12. Voice Coach
