The Oddest Odd Jobs of the Recession

New Positions Created This Year (With or Without Stimulus Money)

Pundits and politicians are still arguing over how many jobs have actually been “saved or created” this year thanks to the stimulus.  But many businesses have managed to create a few new kinds of positions during the economic downturn with or without any government backing. Here is our list of some brand new American jobs that you may have missed. Some hint at the new directions many companies are moving in, while others are just plain weird. These may not be as glamorous as being the caretaker of a paradise island (a position created this year in Australia). Still, if you’ve had little or no luck job hunting in the past, maybe the problem was just that your dream job just didn’t exist until now. Photo Credit: TenSafeFrogs
