Some people thrive in a fast-paced, high-pressure career. But it can be hard to manage an 80-hour work week when you’re busy managing the Instagram account of your three-legged rescue pug, Stacey. If you’re the type to thrive in a fast-paced work environment, here are some of the most popular and exciting careers today – just don’t expect to be doing these while still meeting the demands of your busy dog’s Instagram!
Air Traffic Controller
Air traffic controllers may be the silent heroes of the industry, but the safety of hundreds of people are in their hands at any given moment. It’s an intense job, with often crazy hours, suitable for someone who likes an unpredictable environment and who is not simultaneously trying to manage their schnoodle’s Instagram, including adorable snuggle vids and first-person essays where she says what’s really on her mind!
News anchors have to be up early and ready to respond to sudden events and coherently deliver the news no matter what is happening. It requires keeping up on what’s going on in the world even when you’re not on air, and ready to read lines off the teleprompter at minute’s notice. Go-getter types will love the thrill, but it’s not for the faint of heart, or for those desperately trying satisfy your dog ice cream sponsor on a series of images of your blind greyhound licking dog ice cream.
Regional Sales Manager
Regional sales managers oversee the employees who sell their company’s products for multiple stories, but they are also are dealing with many unique sales challenges at once. It’s a lot of numbers and people to juggle! That’s why this job is not for you if you insist on taking pictures of your dog in human hats and drawing on a little mustache before livestreaming his doggy birthday party for his millions of fans!
Teaching kids is hard work. Not only do you have to manage an entire room of kids, provide one-on-one attention to make sure everyone’s hitting their mark. And at the end of the day you have to plan for the next day. So you can’t be taking breaks to edit videos of “Rolpho’s day at the dog park.” Sorry!!
Fast-paced careers aren’t for everyone. They require a lot of time, energy, and focus. Specifically they require you to not be managing your dog’s insta and replying to dozens of commenters with “I kno he’s sooo kewt, lol. Thanks for watching.”
