So what is the best job in the world? It would very well depend on a person’s interest I suppose. Each individual has their own interests so the answers would vary. But what about a job that, regardless of interests, would interest anyone regardless of where they’re from?
Well, if you or anyone you know are willing to relocate to China, then good news!
Fancy being a Panda Nanny? You spend your work shift training, petting, and grooming pandas. Tell me that’s not one of the sweetest jobs in the world.
The nannies work at the China Giant Panda Protection and Research Center in Ya’an. It’s still a job and these baby pandas deserve all the attention and care from the caretakers. They deserve it because they are an endangered species and this is a pretty important job.
One of the organizers described the job as, “Chinese version of a caretaker of an island on the Great Barrier Reef”.
How much is the pay you ask? That would be 200,000 Yuan a year. convert that to Us dollars and that would come out to around $30,000. More than most Chinese employees make. Now I know what you’re thinking. There are better paying jobs out there, and you’re right. But those jobs come with a lot of stress.
Check out the job description for this one though.
“Your work has only one mission: spending 365 days with the pandas and sharing in their joys and sorrows.”
Are you updating your resume yet? It could be the career of a lifetime.
Now while having to clean these pandas and keep them safe, you’ll also have to train them. Which means there’s a bit of play time and cuddles thrown in. Those are incentives if you think about it. Can you imagine holding one of these fluffy fur balls?
They are as cute as cute can come.
Now these panda cubs are no different from kids and other young animals. They’ll try to explore without knowing what’s out there, so when that happens, just help them back and guide them like you would a toddler. They’ll need to be bigger if they are to do exploring.
These cubs no longer have their moms to care for them so it really is your job to spoil and care for these adorable cubs. So go ahead and shower them with all your attention and love.
There are tons of people out there who want these job. Bet on it.
Newborns are to be measured and tracked to make sure they’re growing up properly. So record and observe all you want, throw in a few hugs and cuddles in there too just to let these cubs know that they are in loving hands.
And just like any young, these adorable cubs take naps. How are they supposed to grow? So resist the urge to cuddle or touch them as they sleep. It’s not like they’ll bite or something, but still, control yourself.
Interested yet? This might possibly be one of the best jobs in the world and you know it. Just think of yourself as the Nanny McPhee or Mary Poppins of pandas and you’re all set!
It’s a job requiring a lot of self control amidst all that cuteness so watch and see how these professional nannies go about it in the video below.
