Work Opportunities


Cemetery management. A side gig breathing fire. Tattooing teeth for a living. Wrangling camera-ready squirrels for the movies. These are stories about the jobs people never wanted, always wanted, or still can’t land—the jobs they do for lack of a better option, or to support family honor and free honey buns. They are stories about beloved pets, left-behind lovers, family members who won’t negotiate, and treacherous bank balances. So enter the thrift store, the side show, the senior center, the zoo, for a cup of coffee or pint of beer, and a few work opportunities you never expected.
