Which Hipster Job Is Perfect For You?

Posted: Updated:

There are many normal jobs in the world -- mechanic, teacher and salesman all come to mind. But why have one of those when you can gun for a job few even know exist? A job so obscure it won't be cool for years? Yes, we're talking about hipster jobs.

And two, no one can accuse you of "selling out" if you're working a job the IRS doesn't even have a classification for, right?

Take the quiz below to find out which real-life hipster job would best match your ironic and utterly unprecedented lifestyle!
