Takeaway: If my part-time career plans don’t work out, there are always other opportunities.
Three dream jobs I’ll never apply for unless I am hungry
Here are three of my favorites, so far. Though each unique unto itself, the theme of these three could be called “getting in your business.”
Job #1: It’s all about the FIT
This job caught my eye. Until now, I’ve just guestimated my bra size. I had no idea there were people — paid people — out there to help me.
“The Bra Fitting Specialist is an expert in bra product and fit – able to diagnose fit issues, sell bra wardrobes and deliver emotionally engaging customer experiences that ultimately grow total bra sales. The Bra Fitting Specialist promotes an ‘I am Best at Bras’ culture by inspiring, supporting and mentoring peers.”
All this and meet my emotional needs? Who knew that a potential job could make me a customer. FIT ME.
Job #2: Location, location, location
The job, in this case, looked fantastic. Until I noticed the long subway commute.
- Office, computer
- Rikers Island jail
- Community organizations
Just kind of slipped that one in there, eh?
Job #3: Superheros only
Posted for a guitar school, this job, entitled “desk superstar,” sounded promising. That is, until you leave the desk.
“And yes, you must be able to clean a bathroom! If you cannot clean a toilet with enthusiasm, this is not the job for you!”
Of course many of us have no choice on whether or not we clean toilets — that’s not the point. The point is: WHY MUST I PRETEND TO LOVE IT?

PS: Thank you to Ruth Eckles for encouraging the sharing of these. Perhaps she’s trying to stop getting my “wtf?” forwards so that I post here instead. You know Eckles? She’s running a mighty fine business called Tactile Productions. Need a story told? She’s your place. Check it out.
