Keep reading about weird jobs that make over $100000 a year. Insider Monkey recently published an article about this topic giving us some very useful tips. Most of these well-paying weird jobs are niche jobs and highly situational. Getting into often doesn’t involve regular schooling and education and most of them are strictly on-the-job-training deals. Some are risky, some are gross, some are just cool, and many of them are a combination of all three. Almost all of them are outdoor types, but we have few that are indoors, for the people that think that nature is overrated.
Now without a further ado let’s see what Insider Monkey has investigated for us. We have picked three weird jobs from their list.
What about collecting some deer urine? Ever been to a hunting equipment shop? Did you happen to notice those small bottles of deer scent that cost between $4 and $13 per ounce? Those are basically bottles of deer urine. While their practical value is debatable, there are plenty of people out there who believe that bottled deer scent will attract deer to them and their guns, so the industry is booming. Especially valuable is doe-in-heat urine which goes from $70 to $100 per gallon. Deer farmers across the country are more than eager to exploit this and urine-collecting buckets have become a staple on many deer farms. In order to earn $100,000 a year as a stunt performer, you really have to be good at what you do. Top notch stuntmen can earn as much as $800 a day, but getting steady jobs can be difficult in Hollywood, with thousands of people aiming for the same spot. Just like any other movie industry job, it is highly competitive, not to mention outright dangerous. There are plenty of stories about stuntmen and stuntwomen who have become crippled due to some freak accident or a stunt gone wrong while on set. If anything, they should get paid far more, but stiff competition has kept the wages rather low, one of many joys of our capitalistic society.
The last idea is being a Podiatrist. What do a sprained ankle, athlete’s foot, blisters, and foot warts all have in common? They are treated by the same person, called podiatrist. These foot doctors, like many other doctors, make a decent living, with a median salary of $124,000, and granted, most doctors occasionally deal with weird stuff, but you can hardly beat looking at gross people’s feet all day when it comes to weird. In our humble opinion, podiatrists are woefully underpaid for the job they do.
