With exam fever on, students are busy thinking about their future. While some might have chalked out a detailed plan, others might still be racking their brains. No matter which category you fall in, here is a fun post about five jobs you never knew existed. They say no skill is a bad skill, and clearly, they’re right.
1. Professional sleeper
Do you love hitting the snooze button every morning? Do you find your sleep to be way more precious than even the weekend movie? Does your idea of relaxing means zzzz-ing all day long? If you answered yes to these questions, you have a bright future. No, we are not being sarcastic. There does in fact exist a job called professional sleeper. Where you get paid to sleep. These people assist in sleep research projects, and help scientists understand and analyse sleep-related problems.

2. Resort water ride tester
Come summer and we all rush to water parks. They somehow make for the best family summer holiday spots.

This job will include you checking water rides for safety, landings, speed, water and many other important aspects.

3. Golf ball diver
Each time you play golf and hit the ball straight into the pool, you think it’s a goner. Right? Wrong! For your information, there is one entire industry made up of gold ball divers.
