Can you imagine going on a plane, every day, and visiting a new country? One day you could be in Brazil, the next, China. How about meeting the hundreds of people, which you inevitably will in your new day-to-day job.

The emergency services are always in need for brave individuals who put their own lives on the line. Imagine being able to say every day that you are making a difference in your line of work.

3. Social Media Analyst
You pretty much spend your whole day on Facebook, Twitter & Tumblr anyway, and imagine getting paid for it! Being a Social Media analyst means that you will be hot on any trends and will be actively looking at your target audience to see what makes them tick.

2. Voice Over Artist
Don’t have the face for TV or Film? Just kidding. If you’re shy of getting yourself on the big screen, why not hide behind your voice and create some really amazing voice overs? The power of audio is incredible.
