常言道:“三百六十行行行出状元”。如今社会竞争如此激烈,有些大学毕业生形容找工作就像“海底捞针”一样。选择常规的职业固然有保障,但有些年轻人已经开始勇于打破常规,尝试新奇的职业。来看看下面这些碉堡了的工作机会符不符合你的胃口吧?

Six months ahead of graduation day, college seniors are thinking about the future. Sure, there are always the standard career choices, but there are plenty of other options you may never hear of. We interviewed three young people to see what their “odd” jobs are like.

离大学毕业还有六个月,大四的学生们都在思考未来。的确,总有中规中矩的职业选择,但是还有许多其他你可能从未听说过的工作机会。为此,我们采访了三位年轻人来了解一下他们从事的 “奇怪的”工作是什么样的。

1. Fly counter

数苍蝇的人

It was a hot summer day, and Yu Jun, 24, had been kneeling by the train tracks for more than 30 minutes. Sweat dripped down his face. He was getting strange looks from passersby. But none of that concerned him. Thirteen, fourteen, fifteen ... he murmured every now and then. His only concern was to count how many flies had just landed on the train track.

那是个炎热的夏日。余军,24岁,已经在铁轨旁跪了半个多小时了。汗水顺着他的脸颊一滴滴淌下来。路人用异样的眼光打量他,但这丝毫没有造成他的困扰。13、14、15。。。他时不时低声说道。此时他唯一关心的是有多少苍蝇刚落在轨道上。

Yu, a chemistry graduate from Peking University, describes himself as a fly counter. His actual profession is to monitor a rail’s impact on the environment.

余军毕业于北京大学化学专业。他管自己叫“数苍蝇的人”。实际上他的职业是监测铁路对环境的影响。

"Constructing a railway always affects its surroundings. The noise of a train passing by is harmful to people’s health. Human excrement left by the train not only attracts insects and disturbs the ecological environment, but also poses threats to the soil and water,” Yu said. His job, therefore, is to observe and test the rail’s impacts. He and his colleague will then find ways to mitigate them.

“修建铁路往往会影响到周围的环境。火车经过的声音对人的身体健康是有害的。而火车沿途排放的乘客排泄物不仅会吸引昆虫,扰乱生态环境,而且还对土壤和水构成威胁,”余军表示。因此,他的工作就是观察和测试铁轨对环境的影响。他和同事将会寻找减轻不良影响的方法。

2. Snapshot

快照女王

Taking a casual snapshot that still makes you look good can seem almost impossible. But Yang Xiaojing is trying to bridge that gap by becoming a photo editor.

随手拍张快照还要拍得好看几乎是不可能的。但是杨小菁通过成为图片编辑填补了这项现实与理想的差距。

Yang, 23, is a business management graduate from Zhejiang University of Finance and Economics. Ever since she started using Photoshop, a photo editing software, she can’t live without it.

杨小菁,23岁,毕业于浙江财经大学的企业管理专业。自从她开始使用图片编辑转件Photoshop后,她便再也不能离开它了。

"I’d never post a photo online without Photoshopping it. The compulsory need to look good is shared by other people too,” she said. So during her college years, Yang volunteered to work part-time at her campus’ photo studio. By editing more than 300 photos a day for three years, Yang can now beautify a snapshot within 10 minutes. That efficiency won her a full-time position at the studio after her graduation.

“我从来不会把没修过的图片发到网上。许多人也有这种追求好看的强迫症,”她说道。所以大学期间,杨小菁自愿在校园摄影工作室做兼职。三年中每天修图超过300张,她现在可以在10分钟内美化一张快照。这种高效为她赢得了毕业后在工作室全职工作的机会。

For beginners, it may take hours to edit a photo. But while speed helps, what’s more important is quality, according to Yang.

对于初学者来说,修图可能要花上好几个小时。虽然速度很重要,但更重要的是保证质量,杨小菁表示。

"Customers want to look good but not too artificial. Striking a balance between the two does not necessarily require a diploma in art or software. Practice is the key to success,” she said.

“客户希望自己的照片看起来不错但又不要太假。做到两者平衡并不一定需要一个艺术或软件方面的学历。实践是成功的关键,”她说道。

3. Sleep expert

试睡专家

As she checks in before entering her hotel room, Chen Cheng looks no different than any other tourist or business traveler. But instead of paying to sleep at a hotel, she gets paid. Chen is a freelance hotel test sleeper.

办理酒店房间入住的时候,陈程看起来与其他旅客或出差的人没有什么不同。然而,她不但不用支付费用,反而会获得报酬。陈程是一个特约的酒店试睡员。

Chen, 25, took a year to travel around Europe after she graduated from Edinburgh University in the UK. During that trip, she got to experience different hotels and meet different people. She shared those experiences on Qyer.com, where she got her first job to write a review for a newly opened hotel in Chengdu.

陈程,25岁,从英国爱丁堡大学毕业之后,在欧洲进行了一年的旅行。旅途中,她体验了不同的酒店并遇见了各式各样的人。她把这些经历分享到了穷游网上,并因此获得了第一份工作——给一家在成都新开的酒店写入住评论。

"To put it simply, a hotel test sleeper is a role-play traveler. You imagine yourself as travelers of different types, ages and genders, and see how each hotel fits their particular needs,” Chen said.

“简而言之,酒店试睡员扮演的是旅行者的角色。你把自己想象成不同类型、年龄、性别的旅客,然后考察每个酒店是否能满足他们特定的需求,” 陈程说道。

"It sounds simple, but you have to be attentive to do it well. You also need to be a good writer, because after each trial, you need to produce a comprehensive report on the hotel’s facilities, location, prices, dining and cleanliness,” she added.

“这听上去简单,但你必须足够细心才能把工作做好。你还得是个好写手,因为每次试睡后,你得写出一个包括酒店设施、位置、价格、餐饮和洁净度的综合报告,”她补充说道。
