12. Panda Nanny: Around $20,000 Per Year
The salary might not sound like much, especially considering the job requires relocating to China. But just wait until you hear the perks. The Giant Panda Protection and Research Center in China’s Sichuan province offers free meals and free use of an SUV, according to The Independent.
The requirements are only to be at least 22-years-old “and have some basic knowledge of pandas.” The job itself? To spend a year with the pandas and share in “their joys and sorrows,” according to the ad for the position. While the position sounds like fun—and surely, it is—it isn’t easy and requires patience, perseverance and dressing up in the likes of the fabulous panda onsies seen here.
