What’s better than getting paid for cuddling? Yes, professional cuddling is a thing. To give lonely people some much-needed company, cuddling for money has become a popular job amongst cuddle enthusiasts who don’t mind where their hugs come from.

Gumologist is every kid’s dream job, which pretty much involves what you think it would (Chewing gums!). Gumologists review new products and developments for chewing gum companies. Despite their tiny size (Don’t judge!), each piece of gum is packed with research, putting the gumologist on the front lines of keeping kids happy. A pretty sweet dream job in the grand scheme of things. Isn’t it?
Do you love pools? Do you love waterslides even more? Then your career choice should be a waterslide tester. Anything better than travelling the world and earning money by testing waterslides at the same time? It’s basically like getting paid to go on holiday. And the best thing of all? No queues.
For many of us, binge watching Netflix is a part of life. So why not get paid for it? Professional Netflix Taggers are a real thing, and they’re employed solely to watch and tag shows and movies based on genre and type. Chilling optional. Without them, Netflix wouldn’t be able to recommend a similar show to fill the hole that finishing the last one has made in your life. Making the world a better place, one TV show at a time.
Tea = happiness. The good news is that it also doubles up as a pretty great job. Not only do they get to drink tea for a living, Tea Tasters also get a generous starting salary, and get to travel around the world. Living. The. Dream.
