Unique Careers That Are Anything But Boring

Are you tired of looking through listings and finding nothing but boring jobs? Finding the right job is a hassle, whether you’re looking to refresh your career or begin a new one.

An excellent way to get a job that isn’t boring is to stop using the traditional way to search for one. Instead of working in retail sales, help companies find merchandise at a fair price. If you love to shop, find a job where you can source refurbished products for customers. Become a professional home buyer instead of a real estate agent. Offer property owners real estate solutions by re-furnishing an ugly house. Buy a vacant house, or update commercial properties.

Here are some jobs that will make you excited to work.

Liquidation Broker

If you have a knack for market research, try this. Liquidation companies help businesses save money. They offer wholesale products through online auctions. By buying and selling new products here, you can earn a tidy profit. You can also deal in returned, refurbished, or overstocked products from top retailers. It is possible to set up a startup, but it can be a hassle. A better option is to work with a company in the business. At a liquidation firm, you will help top retailers to liquidate surplus inventory. As part of the job, you can also help buyers and corporations to get the best deals on merchandise.

Montessori Teacher

Think you have the skills to be a teacher, but want your teaching life to be more fulfilling? Turn your passion into a fun career by becoming a Montessori school teacher. You’ll be using practical methods that will be fun for both teachers and students. The method of teaching, established by Maria Montessori, gives children better choices. It also helps them get a stronger foundational education.

A study conducted by researchers at the University of British Columbia found that programs like these are a high point of education. Children learn to be problem solvers and get help with so much more than classroom learning. The Montessori method helps with cognitive, emotional, social, and physical development.

Real Estate Investor

Realtors get a bad rap, and their jobs are not as glamorous as they look on-screen. However, if you’re passionate about real estate, there’s a way to make the business work for you. A much more exciting way to enter the field is by working for a real estate investment firm. Homevestors help cut out the need to list their property.

As part of your job, you’d help property owners who want to sell their house fast, and even those who are facing foreclosure. How would it work? Well, in your initial visits, you’d make a reasonable offer on their home. You also get to help property owners in their time of crisis. Services at a real estate investment firm also include unloading a burdensome rental property, offering a cash buyout, and helping with paperwork like a short property information form.

Food Scientist

A passion for food does not make you a chef. A love of science does not always make you a data or pharmaceutical scientist. If you don’t want to handle customer returns, can’t bear the thought of studying manuals, or dealing with consumer electronics, you need a more creative career. Have you considered packaging both passions into one to become a food scientist? No, it’s not a made-up job. Food scientists help sellers introduce delicious flavors to food products. If you have ideas for new flavors, and the scientific skillset to help manufacture them, this is the job for you.

Mattress Tester

If you hate the idea of working in an office, don’t despair. There’s a real job out there for people who want to test mattresses. The job includes sleeping on mattresses for a certain time frame to test them. To review them afterward, you answer a series of easy questions and list features, packaging, warranty, and return policy. The sellers usually ask you to test a new, not refurbished item. However, keep your options open for opportunities that include those too. Remember, you also need to be a decent writer to be able to review such goods afterward.
