BIZARRE JOBS

Could this be this world's most awesome job?Put Your Hands Up Sniffer At Work!A business card is always shown the respect it deserves and is a reflection of professionalism. What if the business card reads Armpit Sniffers?This job entails sniffing armpits of people of all sizes, who stand in a line with their arms in the air. These people work as testers for deodorant manufacturing companies.The cosmetic industry goes to great lengths to make sure people smell good after using their product and towards this end employs hundreds of armpit sniffers. The effectiveness of both antiperspirants and deodorants is still tested in the old fashioned way, using the power of the human nose. Men and women are tested in simulated hot room conditions, in order to understand the science of sweating.Deodorant companies totally rely on these people to test their products and thanks to the work of these brave sniffers; consumers can come up smelling good. They protect us from the front lines in the battle with sweat and odor, as they sniff and probe thousands of armpits each year. A single sniffer is said to sniff around 60 armpits an hour and they take three sniffs per pit to assess the intensity of the body odor, all the while using their clipboards to note down offensive odors on a scale of 1 to 10.

You also need to be aware of how time-consuming the process can be for the person being shadowed, so preparation and a genuine interest in the area are vital.

Some jobs are not suitable for shadowing due to the nature of the work and issues around health, confidentiality and safety.12PREPARE AN UP-TO-DATE RESUMETEMPLATES CAN BE FOUND AT: Microsoft Office Templates PERSONAL BIOGRAPHICAL STATEMENTI WILL SEND TO ALL STUDENTS A COPY OF THE POWERPOINT FOR SHADOWING APPROPRIATE FOR EMPLOYERSLETTER TO EMPLOYERS FROM MY OFFICE ON SCHOOL LETTERHEAD HOW TO ASK FOR A SHADOWDO NOT USE RESUME format from Naviance or in some other classes!THE AWESOMENESS OF YOU! how great you are, highlight one or 2 quick pieces, also education, classes, certificates, experiences and FUTURE PLANS!
