Not everyone is suited for a 9-5 job in an office setting where they sit in a cubicle typing away on a computer. Thankfully, there is no shortage of jobs that will keep you far away from that perceived monotony. Here are a few fields you might want to contemplate.
Space is sometimes known as the final frontier. Scientists still have very little knowledge of the secrets that it possesses. If you wish to contribute to that research, you could become an astronaut. Obviously, you can imagine how difficult and competitive it is to join the ranks of a cosmic wanderer.
At the minimum, you must have a graduate degree or equivalent education in a STEM field, as well as expertise in piloting jet aircraft. If you pass NASA’s evaluation, you can help command spaceships that travel outside the atmosphere. Some astronauts even have to perform maintenance on their rockets. They may have to manipulate aerospace fittings from time to time.
2. Marine Biologist
The open ocean scares some people as much as flying on a plane does. The vast waters contain some of the most unexplored regions on Earth. The Mariana Trench, which is the deepest part of the planet, sits 36,000 feet below the surface of the Pacific Ocean! That is more than Mount Everest, the tallest mountain in this ecological sphere.
If this doesn’t frighten you, you may very well be a candidate for pursuing marine biology as an occupation. Marine biologists research flora and fauna that live in saltwater that includes the oceans and the seas. They collect data using boats and scuba diving and then analyze the results in laboratories.
3. Documentary Filmmaker
Making documentaries can take you all over the world, including dangerous regions and areas where the locals won’t be too thrilled to see you. Your job is to tell the stories that otherwise would not be able to be shared with the world. Although a degree in journalism or communication helps, you can learn on the job. A keen eye for storytelling and compassion for humanity will set you apart from the competition.
These are just a few positions that are available for bold and curious individuals. If you do your research, you can find something that is perfect for you.
