7 Fun Jobs to consider

Despite what you may hear frequently, work doesn’t have to be an endless slog. If you do something you love, you’ll never work a day in your life, or so the saying goes.

So we’ve come up with some jobs that sound like a lot of fun. If you’re thinking about careers and would like something that brings joy and excitement to your life, these might inspire you to put fun at the top of your list instead of salary or location etc.

Video Game Tester

If you already spend lots of your free time playing video games – why not get paid to do it? Video Game Testers are responsible for playing games while they’re still in development, or before it’s released to the public. Their job is to catch any bugs or problems so the development team can fix them up. To succeed in this line of work, you’ll need to be detail-oriented, a little creative, and most importantly have lots of patience.

Voice Actor

If you’ve got a talent for impersonations or just have a great voice, this could be a career to consider. As the name suggests, Voice Actors provide audio for a variety of media, including animated TV shows, games, advertisements, audio books, films, and more. Bonus – because nobody can see you, you can wear whatever you like to work. It can be a tough industry to break in to, so you’ll need to have some serious talent and persistence. You could make a start by teaming up with a friend who’s into animation and creating your own videos.

Take a look at this video to see some of the coaching that goes on for professional Voice Actors.

 

Ice Cream Taster 

Well the job title says it all doesn’t it really?  Ice Cream Tasters get to test new flavours of ice cream to make sure they’re up to scratch before hitting the shelves. You’ll need to have a fantastic palate (a great sense of taste), be a good communicator, and creativity is essential to make it in this line of work. A qualification in food science couldn’t hurt your chances either.

You might even like to take it one step further and be the person who invents new ice cream flavours…

 

Doggy Day Care Owner

Spend your day surrounded by adorable puppies and dogs and be your own boss. Sign us up! As the owner of a Doggy Day Care Centre, your duties will probably include more than just giving lots of pats and cuddles. You’ll need to have a keen business sense, as well as not being afraid to get your hands dirty. Obviously a love of dogs is a must for this career.

We’ll admit, we mostly love this video for the cute factor, but it’s worth checking out anyway.

 

Race Car Driving Instructor

Not for the faint hearted. This fast-paced career involves getting behind the wheel of some serious cars, then teaching other people how to do the same. You’ll need to be an excellent driver with all the technical knowledge to boot, be an amazing communicator with the patience to teach others. And you’ll need to be safety conscious and able to work well under pressure, great reflexes will ensure this is more than a short term job too.

You’ll need a sense of adventure, be able to engage with all kinds of people, and a keen walker and talker. Take a look at Greg Snell’s journey working around the world as a Travel Guide.
