Double Dose of Humor for the Job Seeker

Since it's Wednesday and it may seem like an eternity until the weekend, or if you're unemployed and your job search is bumming you out, I'll bet you could use a double shot of humor right now.

Ever thought about applying for a weird or offbeat job? If you have writing or editing experience, can write comedy, and have a keen awareness for such topics as politics and pop culture, The Huffington Post is looking for a comedy editor. Just think about making people laugh and getting paid for it!

Doesn't suit you? No worries. Here's a list of 10 well-paying—but-weird—jobs, from pearl divers to airline repo men. Yes, some of these jobs come with high levels of personal risk, but if you like living a bit on the edge, why not get paid handsomely for it?

Not interested in those either? Well, at least enjoy reading the job descriptions.

Resume bloopers to avoid. Here are plenty of reasons why you need to proofread your resume and have someone else read it before you send it. This post from the Landing on Your Feet blog offers a list of resume faux pas, from "References to be executed upon request" (Ouch!) to this noted career achievement: "Won $17,334 at the dog track."

Do you know of a weird job opening? Do you remember a resume mistake of your own? Share it with us in a comment below.
