Biking Photographer, Google Maps
Street view on Google Maps is extremely handy, thanks to the Google van. But in places inaccessible by the Google van, Google hires people to ride tricycles with a camera to take snapshots. In France, the Google bikers were sent to capture pictures of historical sites. This is great for those who want to travel and stay fit at the same time!
Cartoon Voiceovers and Foley Artists
Ever watch a cartoon or listen to the radio and wonder who’s really voicing the characters? If you’re experienced, you can get paid £215 for just five minutes of voice recording. As a foley artist (such as Mel Blanc, voice of Bugs Bunny, above), you get to make those cool sounds you hear in films or on the radio. With props, your feet, and fabric, you can recreate ‘natural’ sounds for films.
A Chocolate Taster
People don’t often think of chocolate tasting as a potential job, but companies like Tesco, Thornton’s, Green and Black’s, Godiva, and other chocolate companies need to make sure their chocolate is deliciously top-notch. Last year, Green and Black’s offered a salary of £35,000 a year in search of the perfect chocolate taster.
