World’s most extreme jobs
Are you bored of your life? Are you looking for something a little more exciting than the latest admin jobs? Is the closest you’re getting to a little danger opting for a greasy burger from the dodgy van down the road?
Well if you’re sick of the daily 9 – 5 grind and the sight of your suit now might be the time to set yourself up with one of the world’s most dangerous jobs. Do you reckon you can handle it?
Alaskan Crab Fisherman
Being a fisherman may sound like the perfect escape. Being out at sea each day, coming back to dry land with a fresh catch and a thirst for ale. Doesn’t really sound that extreme though does it? Tell that to the Alaskan crab fisherman who risk life and limb each day in Alaska’s ice cold waters.
Window cleaner (but not your average)
You only need to watch those famous films from the 70s to know that the life of a window cleaner is full of event and adventure. Especially when you’re 400ft up one of Dubai’s biggest skyscrapers. We know you’ve got safety equipment and all that, but it’s still a little more gnarly than temping.
We’ve all seen the movies. In the likes of Backdraft, being a fireman appears more of a macho posturing life filled with big blazes and buxom blondes. The reality of the situation is it’s one of the most dangerous jobs you could embark one, staring danger in the face whenever called upon. It’s also physically and mentally draining. Whilst Alaska and Dubai seem a world away, if you really want a bit of the extreme action this one’s a little closer to home.
Sounds like the ultimate doesn’t it? Protecting celebrities, politicians or royals with your life. Jet-setting to some of the world’s destinations to guard a certain someone with your life. Did you get that bit? With your life? Soppy boy Costner may have made it look like the most glamorous jobs in the world, but when it boils down to it and there is a serious threat you’re expected to put your life on the line. Extreme much.
This is what it’s all about. If you’re into cars and driver jobs sound like the perfect life for you, you’re in luck. There are loads of options out there from truck drivers to delivery men. But for the ultimate adrenaline rush you can’t beat a job as a stunt driver. You’ll be impersonating Hollywood’s top celebs in the most dangerous of situations. Your bruised, battered and scar faced will be perfect for all those A-list parties your new showbiz pals are bound to invite you to.
There’s something about putting your life on the line your purely unselfish purposes. Making it all the more noble and virtuous. These workers help others who are in desperate need of assistance, who without them would surely lose their lives. It’s a big job, something that most of us simply couldn’t handle.
So are you set to stay a wage slave or pump some adrenaline into your life? We know which one we’ve go for.
