I mean, how do some folks end up as, for example, riverboat captains or master cabinet makers? Do you just one day up and decide I'm going to study and train to be a riverboat captain? Is it because your father made cabinets and worked with wood and so now you will too?

What I'm really trying to ask is how do you think you could get an unusual job such as:
  1. Batman's Assistant
  2. Janitor at the white house
  3. Electrician for high security government projects
  4. Bill Gates' plumber
  5. Your dead gay son
  6. Hot dog restaurant owner in Reform, AL
  7. Owner of video game company that doesn't produce video games
  8. Owner/operator of a failed comedy forums website
  9. Star-Trek enthusiast, forums moderator, and pedophile

There are many other jobs out there that would be interesting but these are just a few that I could think of. How does one get these jobs?

You have to pay your dues. I worked with this guy for a few years who was a part-time tugboat captain but he never had the chops to pass the exam. Ended up migrating into dockside prostitution in the end. Said it was more of a growth industry.

I have sometimes wondered this too op. Like I wonder who would hire this guy at a pick a part place that runs the entrance booth. He looks completely suicidal, and doesn't form whole sentences. It cost 2 dollars to get in, but he can't even say "Two dollars". He just says "two". And he only says it once. If you ask him what he said he just stares away from you until you give him 2 dollars.

Did that guy have an interview?

Yeah its like, do some folks just roll around and submit an application at random places with "We're Hiring" signs and just fudge through the interview process?

If you've never washed a window, how do you become a high rise window washer? Maybe you need climbing experience or maybe its just something they can train you to do; however, it seems like the kind of thing that they may want you to have working knowledge of.

Hmmm, a rare pro gif spotted

Also the answer to most of those is pretty obvious. Especially any government ones, you apply for them. The rest, almost always, are you knew someone and they were like "hey you want to be a pedophile and forums moderator" "ok"

Thin privilege got me my job as a person that sneaks through bars in gates/iron fences to open latches from the inside.
