7 Awesome Jobs You Don't Know About

Elana Altman | Her Campus

When I was in elementary school, I wanted to be a movie star. The career had it all: Hollywood glamour, traveling, playing lead roles alongside hot actors. What could be better? It seemed like the perfect plan.

Until, of course, I realized that a bazillion other little girls wanted to be movie stars too. And that having a few lead parts in school shows wasn’t exactly going to rocket me to an Oscar nomination. I needed to get real, and pick an attainable career path (though I suppose I’m walking a thin-line with journalism).


Luckily, an attainable career does not have to mean the nine-to-five desk job blues. So for those of you who’ve long ago put aside your dreams of becoming an actress or rock star but haven’t given up on working a super cool job, I’ve got a list of seven careers that will still have you doing awesome and interesting things.

But they’re not the ones that every little girl is practicing using her hairbrush as a microphone to prepare for. Here are the seven coolest careers you’ve never heard of.
