Unusual Jobs

I took a literary side trip with a short supernatural piece I wrote for a themed anthology. In it, a character needed employment, so I searched the internet for unusual jobs. These are some of my favorites.

  • Dog food taster
  • Fortune cookie writer
  • Herb strewer
  • Hippotherapist
  • Iceberg mover
  • Marmite taster

But with the writing’s supernatural slant, I was hoping to find job titles more along these lines:

  • Alchemist
  • Astral projectionist for the Cannes Film Festival
  • Cephalopodiatrist
  • Ghost biographer (not to be confused with ghost writer)
  • Piranha dentist

Now that post-pandemic hiring is on the rise, I wonder how many of these job titles might be filled.
