When you ask children what they want to be when they grow up, they will all probably say the same traditional jobs. They will usually mention becoming a teacher, doctor, hairdresser, or vet. Even though these jobs are traditionally very popular, they aren’t the only ones out there. In fact, there are so many great jobs out there that not many people think about when they are deciding on their career.
Do you think it’s time for a new career? How about one of these fantastic jobs that you might not have thought about.
Do you love going for long drives at the weekend? If so, then a career behind the wheel might be a great option for you. There are lots of truck firms, such as CRST, that are always on the lookout for both full-time and freelance drivers. As part of this kind of work, you will be able to enjoy driving all around the country and discovering new places. Of course, driving trucks isn’t the only kind of driving work, though, as you will also be able to become a limousine driver or a courier for a small local firm.
If you love traveling, then becoming a tour guide could be a great way to earn some money. This is an especially great opportunity if you have a in-depth knowledge of a specific city or tourist hotspot. You will be able to set up in that location and offer guides to all of the visitors and tourists. This is the perfect job for anyone who wants to be self-employed. Don’t worry if you don’t fancy becoming a freelance tour guide, though, as many travel firms also hire guides on a full-time basis.
Doulas are becoming very popular and are helping many women bring their babies into the world. A doula is basically a midwife with a much more holistic view and method of childbirth. They help women come up with the best birth plan that meets all of their needs and wants, and will also be with them through every step of labour. If you love babies, then this is a great job option for you!
Do you love experimenting in the kitchen? If so, then you might have already considered becoming a chef or a baker. But how about becoming a brewer and making new beers? The beer industry is booming at the minute, so going into this industry could prove to be very profitable indeed. If you already know a thing or two about beer and brewing, you could always set up your own company. Alternatively, why not apply to one of the thousands of breweries that now operate across the country.
Another possible career opportunity for those who love to drive would be to become a driving instructor. Then you will get to pass on all of your knowledge and wisdom to those who are just starting their driving career.
So, which of these cool jobs will you go for?
