50 Bulls**t Jobs: Aviation Maintenance Structural Engineer

April 30, 2007, 1:55 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:

Shuffle paper between aircraft mechanics and the real engineers who are somewhere far away.

Main skill required: talking on the phone.

Pros: Some days there’s nothing to do.
Cons: Lots of pressure to get the airplane fixed even though you have no power over when that happens.

 Readers, what do you think? Is this a bulls**t job?
