This job is one that almost no one will be able to land. Not because it’s difficult to do, but because so many people want to do it. In China, the elusive panda nanny position involves spending day after day playing with pandas. Caretakers are responsible for feeding pandas, building
them ladders to climb on, and (ew) weighing panda poop, plus documenting their daily life. For their "trouble," these panda ambassadors also get free meals, accommodations, and a company SUV. Unsurprisingly, when the job was originally posted, over 60,000 people applied, crashing the website.
Some wealthy couples dream of a big, beautiful wedding. But they don’t have enough friends to fill the hall. This is mostly a thing in South Korea and Japan, but if you live there, it’s a fun way to make a little extra money. During the wedding season, some professional

As a movie stand-in, you’ll spend your days on set acting like an actor. You’ll take an actor’s place during screen tests and in scenes that don’t show the character’s face much. In some cases, you don’t need many other skills besides being able to follow directions. If you have experience
riding motorcycles, dancing, doing gymnastics, or other athletic skills, you’ll likely be able to make more money.
Movie lovers who can handle watching hours (days, really) on end of Netflix shows can actually get paid to do just that.

You can work as a luxury bed tester and spend the day sleeping on the job, under different room conditions, followed by writing reviews about the bed or suggesting improvements. Another option is to participate in experiments where you will be 'forced' to sleep
for certain number of hours or even days! The doctors would then monitor your physical and mental states for changes. Besides the obvious benefit of sleeping your days away, you are also actually helping to improve products, or in some cases, advancing science!
