I’m on my way to a successful marketing career. But just incase that path doesn’t work out, I came up with a few alternative options.
Redundancy Professional: I used “alternative options” in my opening. That’s like saying alternative alternatives. I could provide lawyers and higher-ed writers redundant copy…though they both seem pretty competent at being redundant on their own by themselves.
Ketchup Packet Tester: An article on MSNBC announced the new portable Heinz ketchup packet. I would have liked to be involved in the testing of said packet through the consumption of fried potatoes in a moving motorized vehicle. In other words, I want to get paid to each fries. <Credit to Cindy Angel for finding this article>
Laugh Therapist: Got problems? Share them with me and I’ll make you laugh to feel better. On second thought, I don’t really care about other people’s problems so I’ll just stick to writing this blog.
Rodeo Clown: This is where you entertain the crowd at a rodeo, right? Because I’d be really good at that. No danger, just being silly. I guess I would have to invest in clown school.
Ice Cream Tester: Hey, Baskin Robbins–looking for a tester for new ice cream flavors? I’m your girl! I’ll sit and eat ice cream for 8 hours per day, 40 hours per week. No problem. Call me.
Member of Charmin’s Go Team: AKA “bathroom enthusiast.” The members of Charmin’s Go Team get to “greet and entertain guests at the Charmin restrooms and around the city [New York], while also blogging, Facebooking and tweeting about their experiences and the nuances of ‘going.'” I would have applied if I knew about the opportunity. I’m pretty sure I would be perfect for the position. Charmin, if you’re looking for members of the Go Team in the midwest, call me. <Credit to Therese Kuster for mentioning this campaign to me and Cindy Angel for finding the article>
Human Hotel Bed Warmer: Apparently fancy hotels hire people to warm beds before guests arrive. Getting paid to sleep? Yes please! <thanks Cindy for the tip>
While these career options sound great, I think I’ll stick to marketing.
