Answer These Random Questions and We'll Tell You Which Unusual Job You'd Be Perfect For!
by Steven Miller


These jobs might seem bizarre at first glance, but each one pays the bills for someone out there in the world. Perhaps you're looking for an alternative way to make a living, and it's possible that one of these weird careers might actually be your true calling in life. After all, what may seem strange to you might be the dream job for someone else and vice versa.

While the questions selected for this quiz were done so at random, you might be surprised at just how accurate the results are. After all, it's the spirit of the answer, not the specific questions, that tell us the most about you as an individual. For example, a person who enjoys being a couch potato and staying home on a Friday night will definitely have a pattern to their responses, regardless of the specific questions. Similarly, if you're the kind of person who loves adventures and traveling the world, there's a good chance your responses will also fit into a general groove. At least, that's the theory.

So, whether you get paired up with the unusual gigs of Pet Food Tester, Professional Snuggler, Snake Milker, Armpit Sniffer or the countless other odd jobs out there on the planet, we're confident that we've paired you up with the one that is just right for you.

Give it a go and see if we managed to nail it.
