Jobs that were “Born” in the 21st century
We bet, about two decades ago none of us actually thought that new professions would ever occur. Like, what else the humanity would need, right? Have you heard that people are actually paid to watch television shows and movies on Netflix? How about that you can give your toddler to an air nanny while you are taking a flight in the same plane? Take a look at some weirdly interesting jobs that took birth in the 21st century.
1 Netflix Watcher
Sounds like a dream job right? So, what do these people do? Once they get the job of a Tagger at the Netflix media company, they go to work early every day and watch movies and television series before they are made available to customers. So not only you will be able to see things in advance, but all you have to do is sit down and watch. The only thing that is not so fun is that you aren’t the one who will decide what to watch. Netflix does that for you. You watch what they give you and you can’t really say what your favorite shows or movies are. The main thing that Netflix Watchers are doing is “tagging” the movies and television programs by assigning them to a genre. So, a regular watcher gets to “work” on watching cartoons, children programs, and concerts or horror films, documentaries, latest action and drama and so on. Taggers rate every movie according to guidelines and also explain the genre, but they don’t get to rate the program or the movie as good or bad. Most people who work as Taggers consider this as a part-time job running from a few hours a week up to twenty. If this isn’t the ideal part-time job, we don’t know what it is? Also, do they get free pop corn at work?
2 Air Babysitter
Okay, kids are lovely, but just imagine taking an early flight and there is a toddler screaming from the top of his lungs and you can’t do thing about it. There are plenty of airlines that have decided to control this “screaming problem” and help distracted parents and passengers aboard the flight. The solution is simple – they decided to have “nannies” on board. The parents hire the nannies to amuse toddlers and they take care of babies, keeping them calm and giving them all the attention they need during the boring flight. The “flying nannies” are people with certification and training as well as child psychology. They are trained in activities that will keep children well-behaved. This is such a great alternative, knowing that there are airlines that remove families from flights if their children aren’t tamable.
3 Ethical hacker
The first thing you should know about them is that they earn on an average about 90,000 dollars. So, what do they actually do? Ethical hackers find problems and vulnerabilities in a company’s computer security systems, and that is why they are worth so much. Part of their job is to detect any illegal hackers. The Information Technology (IT) department monitors and maintains the digital technology that keeps the company running, so it has to keep ahead of would-be invaders who are constantly revising the tricks of their trade. The ethical hacker, who is hired as a protector, will try to hack into the system repeatedly in ever-new ways to ensure its firewalls and encryption programs cannot be breached.
4 Chief Listening Officer
This is someone hired by a company to actively and avidly follow social media and find out what people think and feel about the company. At least being constantly online is paying off. The Chief Listening Officer must constantly follow people’s opinions on Twitter, Facebook, blogs, and the Web in general for any comments by consumers, concerning interactions with the company or opinions about the product brand, good or bad. The data gathered is presented directly to whatever department it applies. The CLO is skilled at understanding terms of market analysis and can hone in on the most crucial information. Chief Listening Officer helps the company to evaluate ad campaigns and to interact with customers in a more positive way to encourage the customer base.
