Coolest Jobs You’ve Never Heard Of

In my humble opinion, being a ModCloth Merch Writer is as sweet as it gets. Picture it: days spent interacting with compelling product, whipping up content that’s cool, clever, and quirky… Ahh. What a life! While I’m ultra proud of my gig and the challenges that come along with it, there are some even more incredible careers out there that I only recently discovered. Here are a few of my faves:

Fortune Cookie Writer

Believe it or not, the paper that lies inside of the folded confection we all know and love doesn’t just appear from thin air, as its mystical aesthetic may suggest. There are folks out there penning the predictions that faithfully follow a delectable meal of Asian cuisine, many of which are beginning freelance writers. The main objective for fortune cookie content crafers is to develop universally enjoyable content that’s surprising in an age when few things still are. The best part? Inspiration can come from anywhere! (Like this writer-ready top and mug, perhaps?) Talk about a sweet path with unpredictable potential!

Dog Surfing Instructor

‘Howl-abunga’! The only thing better than flaunting a sweet swimsuit in the sand with your furry friend is treating them to their very own surf lesson. Giving new meaning to the ‘dog days of summer’, canine surfing instructors guide your pet to the wonderful world of catching waves, making the classic repertoire of ‘sit, stay, and roll over’ seem pretty antiquated. There is yet to be an official training program for this position, but it is suggested that one has an understanding of surfing basics, a ton of patience, and a love for those adorable little life jackets.



Submarine Chef

Easily the most terrifying and intriguing of the three, the life of a submarine chef is far more than feeding a crew while being underwater for months at a time. As captain of the kitchen, a hard work ethic, a great sense of humor, and of course, being cuisine savvy promise success in this niche, nautical field. Plus, there’s always the opportunity to steer the sub! Action, adventure, and great eats. Sign me up! Well, perhaps after I overcome an intense fear of the deep ocean.

About Savannah

If something's happening on stage, you can probably find Savannah there, from house shows and dramatic theater productions to faraway metal gigs and full-on festivals. Otherwise, she spends her days elbows-deep in carb-heavy meals, rattling about years spent overseas, and testing the creative limits of an all-black wardrobe.
