It's not just dogs and cats. No no, it's also horses, pigs, lions, mice, squirrels and ravens. Oh, and don't forget lions, tigers, bears and even the occasional mongoose.

Insider knowledge – despite what you may think about them being full of wisdom, owls are actually pretty hard to train. And Hedwig seemed so intelligent...

When a kettle boils in a film, did you know that the sound effect is probably someone blowing bubbles into a milkshake? Cue the life of a foley artist – people who use their imagination to create sound effects using everyday objects.

7. Art Handler

Art handlers have an extremely important job; they work with a variety of people to ensure the safe moving and handling of works of art. It's a tough job – you definitely don't want to be the person who gets in trouble for scratching the Mona Lisa.

9. Greeting Card Creator


Do you have a gift for penning heartwarming messages or ROFL jokes? Well, a greeting card creator may be the career for you.*

*N.B. it is highly unlikely you'll meet a girl named Summer. Which isn't a bad thing, because after 500 days, she'll probably break your heart.

11. Games QA Tester / Via

No, this isn't too good to be true – this occupation truly does exist. As a Quality Assurance Tester, you would be paid to test video games before they go public.

With great power comes great responsibility – the role would involve checking for bugs, measuring the game's playability and evaluating it against competition.
