Have you ever thought about becoming a bounty hunter? Wondered how much bullfighters make? Considered training lions or jumping out of helicopters into forest fires for some extra cash? Did you know truck drivers have steered themselves into one of the most dangerous jobs in America? Dangerous Jobs offers an entertaining and informational guide to employment for the truly adventurous soul. Dozens of jobs are profiled with information on what the position entails: potential pay and hours, qualifications necessary, and what sort of risks you can expect should you accept the challenge and pursue the job. If the bomb squad isn't your cup of tea, maybe you'd prefer snake charming. Or discover your true calling as a human crash test dummy, or perhaps a rodeo clown. Are you serious about committing to a long-term dangerous career? Learn what it takes to become a CIA agent, Green Beret, or UN Peacekeeper. Whether you' re looking for a little adventure (and some extra cash), a new career that will keep your heart racing, or you're just curious what drives folks to chase tornadoes or throw themselves out of moving trains, this book will change your idea of work forever.… (more)
