When it comes to finding the perfect job, you have to do a lot of research into different industries to determine where your skills and personality type will be most useful. There’s no point working within the financial industry if you hate mathematics, and there’s no point getting involved with companies that are primarily deal with the general public if you’re less than confident in social situations. Firstly, it’s probably a good idea to make a list of all your most attractive qualities, and then compare those needed for individual industries with your own.
Considering all this, I’ve spent an hour or so this morning looking at some of the more obscure industries you might like to consider. All of them have the potential for you to achieve high earnings if you work hard enough, and all of them have enough vacancies to make the endeavor worthwhile. Still, they won’t all suit every person reading, which is why you need to give some serious thought to each of them before ploughing ahead.
1. The Pneumatic Components Industry
Do you have interests in both engineering and chemistry? Could you see yourself heading up a manufacturing team that supplies some of the biggest and most influential businesses in the country? Then opting to apply for jobs with companies like BL Pneumatics could be the solution to all your employment concerns.
2. The Show-Business Industry
If you have a passion for theatre or television and you want to spend your working life adding to the spectacle, there are literally hundreds of different jobs you could apply for. Sure, you probably aren’t the best actor in the world, but that doesn’t mean you can’t start a career as a stagehand or sound and lighting expert. You could even try to become a theatre manager if you have the inclination.
3. The Demolition Industry
There aren’t many people who spend their childhood dreaming of blowing things up, but if you’re one of the people who did, deciding to find a suitable role in the demolition industry could be perfect. Of course, there are many niches within this field, so whether you specialise in tower block demolition, private housing demolition or even underwater demolition, you’re certain to find the work both interesting and challenging.
4. The Museum Industry
You’d be forgiven for thinking only old and boring people work in the museum industry, but that couldn’t be farther from the truth. In fact, it takes some seriously dedicated individuals to organise all those precious items, and so there’s a huge team behind the scenes bringing everything together. Successful applicants will have to deal with loaning items to other museums, keeping track of items they’ve borrowed from other places, and lots of exciting stuff guaranteed to keep you on your toes.
5. The Gambling / Casino Industry
I realise some people may take a moral stance on this one and decide it’s unsuitable, which is fair enough; you should never compromise your ethics for any job. However, if you’re looking to make lots of cash while having a great time, becoming a dealer or floor manager could help you to enjoy working for the first time in your life. Plus, big winners tend to give the staff healthy tips, and that’s not to be sniffed at.
Well my friends, now you know about some of the most unusual industries for employment opportunities, I hope you’ll strive for something a little different over the next few weeks. Just remember, while that job at Asda stocking shelves might be appealing financially when you’re out of work, it’s never going to lead to better things.
Keep your eyes peeled!
