Ever wonder how interesting a job can be?
Here are some of the most unique jobs(in my opinion) my friends around me are doing:
- A taoist priest
- A medium
- A feng shui master
- A DJ
- A social worker
- Toilet paper wholesaler
- A talent-headhunter
- A full time blogger
- A toy seller
I personally feel that friends who hold positions in the music industry have gotten themselves really cool jobs too. Every position I learnt is an eye opener to me: musicians, songwriters, producers, film makers, sound engineers, sound operators, Audio Programmers, Music editor, Music Therapists, Audio designers... even a boom mic operator amazes me. He has this enormous black bag filled with all kinds of big & small microphones and knows exactly which mic to use for which scene, even to capture the slightest pin drop!
Just 5 years ago, I never knew these jobs even exist!
Have you ever thought of getting yourself a career in this music industry?
The best part is if you're selected, the Government is funding up to 90% of your course fees!
Friends without musical background (like me) may still apply!
I have no musical instrument background at all.
The only musical instrument I can play is perhaps the recorder back in Primary School. :p
