“There are countless ways to make a living in America, and for many people, typing at a desk or working retail just isn’t the right fit. All summer, NPR has been meeting young people who have landed jobs with some wacky job descriptions.”
I got excited when I looked through this list and found a job that I’d actually done. I was a Standardized Patient for a short time, which was a pretty unusual experience. A lot of the other “patients” were trained actors; I was not, but I still enjoyed the process of getting into character. The hard part was staying in character after several “exams.”
A fun read, and a cool glimpse into the lives of others.
