Flight Attendant

Have you ever wondered what it would be like to wake up in China and go to bed in England? Or how about seeing Germany from above at sunrise and then the Egypt at sunset? Flight attendants are some of the fortunate people who don't have to just wonder about things like these- they live them!

Being a flight attendant isn't like your typical 9-to-5 job. There’s good insurance, tuition assistance, excellent travel options like reciprocal travel agreements, and you won’t ever have to work a typical 9-5.

In an ever-changing environment, Flight Attendants need to adapt to what can sometimes be quite challenging situations. The work environment is dynamic and fast paced, and includes long hours, changing time zones, new routes, new colleagues, and the latest in innovative products and services, but this job will never be boring.

Circus Artist

Circus performers entertain audiences with displays of skills like acrobatics and clowning. Other skills include juggling and balancing on the trapeze or high wire. If you’ve got skills like this and love entertaining then becoming a circus performer could offer you something different.

Circus performers, though they must be incredibly skilled, make great money, travel widely, and are given generous meal and lodging allowances, not to mention the close knit family of a group of performers on tour. If you have the heart and soul required, it can be an incredibly exciting career.

Newspaper or Magazine Journalist

Newspaper journalists or reporters, cover any event of interest to people or specialist readers. This could be anything from reporting on council meetings and school fêtes for a local paper, to general elections and world events for the national press.

Magazine journalists research and write news articles and features for a wide variety of publications. You could be writing for anything from glossy consumer magazines to specialist trade journals. If you love writing, doing research and are creative this could be the perfect job for you.


DJs play music for audiences at live venues, or entertain radio audiences. If you are interested in music, and you are confident and outgoing, this job could be ideal for you. You would often work varied or unsocial hours. As a mobile or club DJ you would work mainly in the evenings and at weekends, often until the early hours of the morning.

In radio, hours depend on when your programme is on-air, whether it is live or pre-recorded, and the amount of off-air preparation you do. Working as a DJ you won’t work typical hours, but you’ll get lots of comp tickets and swag, not to mention the ability to meet people in the music industry, and you’ll spend hours and hours listening to the music that you love. What can be better?

Personal Assistant

It takes a certain type of person to be a personal assistant to a celebrity, CEO or other busy bee. You have to put your life second as you run around booking flights, picking up dry cleaning, making reservations, and even helping with kids' science projects for someone else's family. But if you're patient and enjoy the rush of working around the clock, you'll score awesome fringe benefits.

You may often accompany the family on their trips, flying and staying for free, and hopefully getting a free day to enjoy yourself. You'll also gain access to other high-profile individuals, improving your networking opportunities and giving you invaluable experience when it comes to speaking up and making things happen.

Professional Taster

Eating chocolate for a living may seem like the sweetest way to earn a paycheck. Or imagine eating ice cream all day, or being one of the first to try out the latest type of cereal. Sound like a dream? As a Professional Taster, this is just another day at the office.

In this job, the Professional Taster tries out the latest creations of different food companies. A Professional Taster looks for things like the product’s consistency, taste, smell, and overall feel. You'll learn how to cultivate your ability to look for certain flavors and notes, writing detailed records of each tasting. But how lovely would it be to eat chocolate or ice-cream every day, for free and get paid for it?
