Unknown Jobs – Jobs You Didn’t Know Existed


(Unknown Jobs) This would be a rather easy list to compile seeing as STEM or Law or Commerce jobs seem to be the only Jobs that are considered “valid”. The Indian idea considers everything else as sub-par and unsatisfactory. Here, we don’t seem to choose jobs based on our aptitude and passion but rather on money and status. But this list doesn’t contain unknown jobs that mysteriously pay well. But rather, super eccentric ones that will probably put the common Indian father to gross shame.

So, here is a list of unknown jobs:

Now, this too sounds like a cool and adventurous Armed Forces job. But no.
