Do you often get asked “what do you want to be?” or “what’s your plan for the future?”. This can not only be irritating, but it can also be really daunting! How can you know what you want to be for the rest of your life?
Did you know that in the UK, one in four people are considering leaving their jobs as job satisfaction is at an all-time low, so you need to find one that you love, right?
Here are a few weird and wonderful jobs that you probably haven’t considered, but really should!
If you love animals and really want to run your own business, you might want to consider starting a dog breeding business! Not only can this job be really fun, but it can also be pretty lucrative! Try to bring all the services you would need in-house to keep your costs low; for example, learning to microchip dogs will save you money in the long run. You will also need to learn to not get attached to the puppies – or be prepared for some difficult goodbyes!
Teach Languages Abroad
Getting paid to travel the world sounds too good to be true, doesn’t it? Well if you want the opportunity to live and work anywhere in the world, getting qualified as a language teacher is a move for you! If you are proficient in any other languages, this will be a huge advantage. Many language schools will also help you get set up in a new country so all you’ll need to do is show up!
If you have any experience working with children and want to make a real difference in a young person’s life, you might want to think about becoming a foster carer. Whether can go via a private fostering agency or via your local authority, it can be quite a lucrative job! Communication skills, patience, understanding and a good sense of humour are essential, but it’s one job that will make you feel really valued and loved.
Are you, (like a lot of us), a self-confessed bargain hunter? Maybe you’re one of those people who loves getting the best price and the highest quality item? Well, did you know that you can actually get paid for doing it? A procurement officer’s job is to source and buy in products and services for anything and everything, ideal for the true bargain hunter!
If you’re the person everyone runs to when they are planning a party, you could have a bright future as an event planner. You’ve got to have flair for events, and basically, live off ‘to-do-lists’, but it can a really fun and rewarding role! This could be anything from weddings and birthday parties to corporate award shows and club nights. You will also need to be willing to work unusual hours and be able to deal with periods of intense stress, but it’s worth it if you get invited to the after-parties!
Love working out? Always at the gym? Why not get paid to be there! Being a personal trainer allows you to work for yourself, work out and make people feel great about themselves – what could be better?
