All of us are looking for a way to make a living and it can often take us multiple attempts to find that one job that will keep us happy until retirement. Rarely do we chase the career that we said we wanted when we were children – more often we end up doing things we least expected. That is because our life is a journey that shapes us.
Our journey is often a long one that requires plenty of stumbles, missteps and successes. But that journey doesn’t pay the bills if you aren’t working. You can’t find a way to go out on the weekend, by that T.V. you want, save for a house, or pay off your debts off of learning. Instead, you need to find something to hold you over – or possibly make a career out of.
This list is not going to talk about the highest paying jobs out there, that is a list for a different day. Instead, this is going to look at the types of jobs that give you an insane amount of pay for interesting, sometimes easy, or extremely fun work. The idea is that the amount of work – or the lack of it feeling like a job – versus the pay is what makes a job qualify for this list.
Some of these jobs will appeal to you and some of them won’t. Some of the items on this list are careers, others are short-time jobs that can give you a nice boost in income in the short term. Either way, few of the jobs on this list are ones you have ever considered and if we inspire you to try something new, then we did our job.
Here are 20 Strange Jobs That Have Insanely High Salaries:
19. Shot Girl $300 – $600 Per Night
You’ve seen the shot girls at concerts, private parties, gatherings, and all types of events. They are generally marketing professionals that are hired to offer a specific type of shot. The idea is that they get you to try a few free shots of a particular flavor leading you to purchase that brand.
While we often look at the shot girls as ones that are in “perfect shape”, that isn’t what is required. This is a job about personality. Marketing companies also know that people are interested in different shapes and sizes of girls as well. On the same not, the shot girl job may be moving more towards the “shot person” field as men are starting to find positions within the field.
College students or those just starting out on their permanent career hunt. Party lovers and socialites.
18. Bounty Hunter Up To 45% Of Bail
Boba Fett or Dog the Bounty Hunter are the most likely names you will recognize in this particular career field. While Boba Fett is obviously a fantasy version of the career path it does say a thing or two about the skills required.
Say what you will about Dog the Bounty Hunter – his show was fairly faithful to what was required of someone pursuing this particular job or career. Violence wasn’t often needed, but the threat of it was. Dog had a fantastic way of showing no fear, but inspiring that fear in the people he was pursuing. You don’t have to be a fighter to be a bounty hunter, you just have to have the courage to look like you are.
This is a dangerous job though, likely the most dangerous on the list, but if you take a few safety precautions you should come out at the end of each day unscathed. The pay is hard to nail down as it is a percentage of the total bail that was assigned to individual that skipped bail.
Aggressive or pacifist personalities that can talk a big game and have no fear of tense situations. Adrenaline junkies.
