Everyone dreams of having or finding a more exciting job. But those dreams tend to be quickly crushed by the realisation that all the really kickass jobs are the ones that require the kind of training or experience that is next to impossible for most of us to acquire without capturing a wish-granting elf.
Well, as it turns out, some of the best kickass jobs in movies require almost no training whatsoever and can be done by almost any old jackass who walks in off the street. And the best part is they are not science fiction – they actually exist, right here in the good old land of Oz.
#2 The Kick Ass Expert
Experts, also known as specialists, are in the business of handling and solving some of the world’s most complex problems. You’ve seen them in virtually every science fiction thriller that has ever been produced. They’re usually in the background, picking up debris at an alien crash site, mopping up zombie guts or chasing bad guys with amazing CG animated geolocation apps and frantically typing complex algorithms into keyboards at speeds that make you dizzy just watching it.
They get called in when something in the environment is so complex it simply can’t be dealt with by Will Smith alone. The expert crew then expertly evaluates and removes said dangers and decontaminates the area, both to contain the damage that has already been done and to keep any additional bystanders from getting melted, usually by using their amazing nerd coding skills, computer language or design skills or simply expert experience.
They’re the ones who have to deal with the big problems and they get to wear those badass high-vis vests we love so much in Australia, together with the hard hat and the plastic safety glasses. (Politicians in high-vis gear and hard hats are obviously excluded and don’t qualify as experts) So, surely they are a select, carefully trained few…

#1 The Bounty Hunter
Bounty hunting is a centuries-old, kick ass job, where grizzled cowboys harder than a coffin nail set out to capture other, possibly even more grizzled cowboys, armed with only their wits, guts and whatever trusted weaponry they can carry. In movies, bounty hunters have been played by everyone from Clint Eastwood (For a Few Dollars More) to Robert DeNiro (Midnight Run) and there’s a reason why Star Wars fans love Boba Fett, despite the fact that he doesn’t deliver anything.
It’s because the idea of cruising around, answering to no man as you doggedly pursue your prey is as kickass as it gets. The real life 2015 version of the Bounty Hunter is the good old Head Hunter (aka Recruiter) who hunt for people like you. These guys don’t get their hands dirty. Their weapons are keyboards, ATS software, the latest suit from DJ or Zara and their 457 visa so they can ‘virtually’ roam the streets and collect a juicy bounty (recruiter commission) if you, the candidate, gets hired.
How kick ass is that?! The best part of that gig is that their head hunter bounty is somewhere between 10 – 30 % of your annual salary. Not a bad pay if you ask me.
