Which end of the snake goes in my mouth?
I’m talking to you college seniors now, who are about to graduate and are looking around for that all-important first job. Two words for you: snake handling.
I know, you’re saying, “That sounds really hard, and I’d probably have to work weekends!” But believe me, people look at you differently when you wear that blue shirt and your business card has the word rattlesnake on it.
Just ask the guy in this picture. Well, maybe don’t ask him, because he has a bunch of snakes dangling from his mouth. But talk to your career counsellor today and ask for information about this lucrative and respected profession.
