50 Bulls**t Jobs: Digital Asset Management

April 25, 2007, 2:33 PM UTC

Just a few ways to be profitably and pleasantly (if uselessly) employed, from Stanley Bing’s book, “100 Bulls**t Jobs and How to Get Them” (Harper Collins).

A reader from New York writes:

Wow that sounds very technical and sophisticated right?  I even have a complicated acronym to go with my bulls**t job: D.A.M. Specialist.  More like bulls**t specialist.  I work for a few big name photographers in the city and make sure they can find all of their files (photos) and create a backup system so they don’t get lost.  This is called “Creating a customized digital workflow, managing a digital archive, and establishing a studio wide file handling protocol”.  I’m basically a digital janitor.  I clean up what most people are too lazy and didn’t have the foresight to do.  It pays well and I am now working from a remote location and able to travel when and where I please.

Readers, tell us what you think. Is this a bulls**t job?
