Hook writer

They’re song writers, but they don’t actually write songs. They just write the catchy part for a certain beat or verse.

Underwater lumberjack

When trees have been covered due to flooding or diverted rivers, these people get to work.

Food expert witness

These people explain food to juries in court.

Bereavement coordinator

They work with families that are grieving the loss of a loved one. This typically involves helping the family do paperwork, providing counseling, and coordinating any necessary services or support.

Book conservator

It’s kind of like being a doctor, except for books.

Subway building spotter

Metro systems like the London Underground pay people to walk along the lines above ground checking to make sure that no building codes are being violated (this could have deadly repercussions for the metro lines).

Parachute tester

Well, somebody has to go first…but seriously, this job isn’t that much different from test pilot or stunt man. Quite often, these people end up being soldiers testing military equipment.

Gallon gas checkers

These people make sure that the gas stations really are pumping one gallon of gas when they say they are pumping one gallon of gas.

Slot machine music producer

These are the people that come up with all those sounds. They are actually designed to be addictive.

Professional jewelry wearer

When a rich person in one country wants to sell jewelry to another rich person in a different country, they’ll sometimes pay someone to wear the jewelry from point A to point B. Of course, this can be considered smuggling…but hey, they’re rich.

Prop shopper

TV and movie production agencies employ these people to find props that they need last minute.

Underwear cockroach inspector

They check the underwear for insects before it’s shipped out to retailers. Perhaps not surprisingly, warehouses aren’t exactly bug-free.

Staple removers

When companies decide to go digital, they need someone to remove the staples from all of their documents so that they can be scanned. Of course, this is typically a college summer job.

Alpaca shaver

Well, the alpacas aren’t going to shave themselves!

Bridge driver

When you are too afraid to drive over a bridge by yourself, you can call up a bridge driving service, and they will drive over the bridge for you.

Servant servants

It’s true. There are parts of the world where servants have servants.

Lightbulb replacer

Big universities and companies actually employ these people.

Recovery truck driver

Trucking companies employ people to recover abandoned trucks and cargo. Because when the driver decides they’ve had enough in the middle of Wyoming…

Shabbos goy

This refers to a non-Jewish person that does things for Jewish people that they aren’t supposed to do on the Sabbath (like push elevator buttons).

3x5 index card typer

It’s a bit dated, but this was the person who typed those index cards at the library that we all used to find books before the internet.

Personal shopper

Yes, people get paid to shop, especially in Asia. Rich families would rather pay someone to fly to the US or Europe to buy things there than trust local retailers (who might be selling knockoffs).

Phone call captioner

There are companies out there that live-caption phone calls for the hard of hearing.

Song player

Radio stations employ people to decide exactly when and how often to play each song (and no, it’s not actually the DJ). These people use special software and follow a bunch of rules to create the mix.

Line straightener

Although these days there are computers, back in the day architects would employ people just to check their lines

Bovine identification and exit prevention specialist

This is the coolest name we could find for this job, but basically these people sit around all day watching cows to make sure that none of them escape.
