Fascinating jobs
Curt Rosengren on Passionate Work

Every once in a while I run across someone doing work that just fascinates me. For example, how about being a sign language interpreter at rock concerts?

The craft is harder than it sounds: At its best, it's being prepared and knowledgeable enough to communicate the essence of an artist's lyrics over the actual words. By law, venues must provide interpreters upon equest.


Part of the fascination is just, 'I had no idea people did that!' It appeals to the trivia junkie in me. And part of it is the way it reinforces how much opportunity there is out there to create a career that is tailor made for us. We don't have to follow the one-size-fits-all, job-in-a-box career path. The range of opportunity is inevitably much broader than we're aware of. Sometimes we just need to discover what's out there.

How about you? Have you run across any jobs that have that fascination factor?

Great question, Curt. A while back I found an article about the 'Pet Butler Dog Waste Removal Services' company in Columbus Ohio, and yes, they do exactly what the name implies. And apparently, they enjoy their jobs too.
