Anyone can find themselves getting bored with their jobs sometimes, and few people will not have experienced that sense of career ennui at some point. However there are some career choices, from the eccentric to the genuinely exciting and risky, that are surely free of any possibility of this. Here we will take a look at some of those oddball careers that are ideal for those who don’t mind standing out from the crowd.
There are actually entire companies – such as colorcom – devoted to this unusual career. You might well be wondering precisely what a colour expert is, and that would be a reasonable thing to wonder, but apparently it involves being able to determine which colours will work best in anything from a corporate logo to an office design. Colour experts use their knowledge of colour design theory, demographic stats, what styles or hot and colour psychology to reach these decisions. Training is available from the Association of Colour Consultants, and if you relish colour, why not go for it.
If you know your way around social media, this could be the job for you. People actually hire those with social media skills, via freelance sites such as Fiverr, to set up fake Facebook profiles on their behalf. The reasons can be anything from wanting to boost the number of friends they appear to have, to provide ‘likes’ for the Facebook page of their company, or as a pretend romantic partner. It’s certainly a little odd and won’t suit everyone, but people pay well for this service.

You will dub voice work for everything from corporate recordings to advertisements and it can be video or audio-based work that you are adding your voice to. If you are good then this can extremely lucrative, with some voiceover pros making hundreds of pounds for just five minutes of voice work
Becoming a professional gambler is a more popular career choice now than at any time before, because the rise of online casino and sports betting websites make it easier to do so than it was in the past. You can bet on casino games or sports full-time from the comfort of your own home now, rather than travelling all over the place for tournaments and sports events. The key to success is to pick a game or sport that you are knowledgeable about, never stop researching to learn more, and know when to stop betting. If you like the thrill of the bet, this will be an exciting career choice.
This can be a fun and engaging way for the artistically talented to make a living from their skill. Whether you are providing face painting for kids at funfairs or for adults at music festivals – or even being hired to paint faces and bodies for videos or photoshoots – it will let you explore your creativity as well as supporting yourself.
