Unusual Occupations

What does unusual mean to me:

An unusual job to me is a job that is uncommon for people to undertake, however it is a interesting job that might interest me to undertake in the future.

One such occupation would be an archaeologist.

I feel that archaeologist is a very uncommon job, especially in Singapore as you often wouldn’t hear someone say that they would want to become an archaeologist. Also, it could be because Singapore is a tiny country, therefore there will be lesser artifacts to find and dig out. In other countries such as America, the country has a longer history and a much larger land space to dig out for artifacts. That is why many archaeologist are from other countries or would want to travel overseas to study and become archaeologists.

Ever since i started studying Geography in secondary school, i got really interested of the world around me, and this made me want to learn more about the Earth and the land forms around the world. Since i love geography and was also fascinated about history, i thought of becoming an archaeologist as i get to travel around the world in search of rare artifacts which would tell me more about the people who lived here long time ago. Digging and finding the artifacts would also be very exciting as i get to touch and look at the artifact upfront. Being an archaeologist can also help me expand my knowledge as i get to research and learn more about the artifacts and the way of life of the people in that particular era. Also, i would be able to make friends from other countries around the world and learn about their experiences and their interesting findings as an archaeologist.

I feel that being an archaeologist is an exciting job which i will never get bored of as i will always be in search of new artifacts and i will be travelling to new places. Therefore, one unusual occupation which i might undertake in the future would be an archaeologist.
