Your way of sleeping may be your best skill
Hi guys! It has been a while, hasn’t it?
I am excited to finally share my thoughts, pop culture, points of you and other teas with you but in English. Welcome to the Fashion Tea And Other Teas!
Today’s issue is pretty unusual. Do you know that professional sleeper is an actual possible career? Maybe you have never been lazy, you just never knew how to use your skiils. lol
Well, the job consists in being paid to sleep in order to support research investigations. A professional sleeper works with a variety of clients, such as hotels, scientists and medical professionals. When they're working, these professionals have to sleep in specific conditions and provide their feedback about the experience.
It seems strange but the estimated yearly salary is 58,627 $. Since the last few decades, it has increased quite a lot as a new demand in society. Sounds like a good professional option?
This job requires the ability to sleep, since It's essential for you to be able to sleep in different circumstances, such as away from home or with people watching, communication skills because you rather have a good verbal and written communication skills so you can share your feedback with the researchers that you're assisting. And finally, flexibility: it's beneficial for you to have a flexible schedule to adapt to the different needs of a particular job.
Although it sounds as a pretty easy way to make money, some professional sleepers claim about spending a long time indoors away from their social life, feeling out of touch with the outside world and not feeling well paid enough for such specific career.
In my opinion, it seems quite absurd to be paid that much for this but considering other types of jobs that exists, it does not seem so bad or overwhelming.
Anyways, I thought it could be interesting to bring this odd job here as a random and unusual fact that probably will not edify your life but it is still funny though. Imagine you in high school picking such a job and telling everyone about it.
