There was a time when our parents gave us two options to choose for a bright future – become an engineer or a doctor. That spelt security and a steady income. But not everybody could become a doctor or an engineer.
Those not so bright ones choose banking or government jobs to secure their future. Or they followed the family business. But times change and so do perceptions.. The younger generation today is well aware of what they want.
There is a lot to choose from. We decided to check and curate a list of interesting and abstract career options that we discussed with Puneites to check on their favourite choices!
Everyone likes a good warm cuddle from their loved ones? But would you like if it comes from a stranger and that too for a price. A New York based “professional snuggler” established “The Snuggery” because she believes in the healing power of touch. They aim to make earth a “happy place” by snuggling their customers and healing their aching heart and even don’t mind asking for a price. This is strictly non-sexual and there are strict restrictions for the same.
“I’ll prefer being a professional cuddler as I am warm at heart and I love cuddling. It feels good to offer solace to a wounded heart. A profession like this would definitely make the world a better place,” says Sakshi Arora, a lifestyle blogger.
Originating from the Latin word ‘hippo’, or horse, hippotherapy is a therapy provided to patients suffering from physical and neurological disabilities. Because a horse’s pelvis has a three-dimensional movement that mirrors the physiology of the human walk, horseback riding can be highly beneficial for such patients. And of course, a horse ride on a sunny day is never a bad idea.
“I always enjoyed horse riding, even wanted to have one. Currently I am a physiotherapist. A career as a hippotherapists would let me justify my profession and also cater to my long-lost dream,” says Anup Agarwal.

“This is something that definitely provokes me to quit my job and be a Social Media Influencer. Since I am 24/7 active on social media this seems to be a dream job for me,” speaks Shreya Santhalia, an executive at a travel agency.
An Ice-Cream Taster
Always up for a frozen dessert any time of the year? Then this is the ideal job you should apply for. Ice cream tasters are ideally paid to taste different ice cream flavours and are expected to assess each flavour on the basis of colour, texture, smell, appearance and other factors. So, your wait is over as we have got you sorted in your career.
“Tasting different ice cream flavours would be very fascinating for an ice cream lover like me. Moreover, it would help me know which flavour works well with which mood. That will help me calm my fiancé and avoid all the tantrums and utensil banging,” giggles Parth Welankar, a political geek.
Professional Mattress Jumper
Can’t believe? Well, it turns out that such profession actually exists. While some would be fascinated with the profession, only those doing it insist it’s not a child’s play. A mattress jumper uses his sole to compress the mattress layers and detect even a pea sized lump in it. You can be assured that the best mattresses from places such as Http://zenhavencoupon.org/ have undergone some sort of rigorous mattress jumping test before they hit bedrooms all over the world. According to the professionals, it needs a lot of precision and definitely some moderation.
“Okay, I didn’t know this. I always think of my bed. Like all-the-time and when you actually get paid by bouncing on those lovelies, I am definitely trying that. And also, that’s too much of cardio for a day. So, bye gym,” says Hussain, a fitness enthusiast.
