(CareerBuilder.com) -- Some people seem to have it so easy. While they're out enjoying a great job and earning an income doing it, you're slaving away and miserable at work. So what gives?
The answer lies in finding just the right job to fit your dreams and lifestyle.
In his book "100 Bullsh-- Jobs... and How to Get Them," Fortune magazine columnist Stanley Bing (aka Gil Schwartz, humorist and executive vice president of communications at CBS Television) offers a list of various cushy career options. True to Bing's witty nature, this read explains the level of B.S. in each career and offers background on various cushy jobs -- everything from Aquarium Cleaners to "The Guy Who Says He'll Have Your Car Ready by Noon."
If you're interested in pursuing a career with a high level of B.S., here are a few of Bing's 100:
What they do: Craft cheese by traditional methods.
What they do: Improve the organizational arrangements of closets, garages and other spaces for clients.
What they do: Combine the knowledge of holistic medicinal methods and applications of suggested oils to create emotional and physical well-being. What makes it cushy: Getting paid to make people smell good and feel better. Why it's not: People may smell pretty funky to start with, and there's a lot to learn about the body, the oils and the applications.
What they do: Interpret the actions of pets to communicate the messages to their owners.
What they do: Provide expert advice in an area of training, such as marketing or finance, for a specified time period.
