Every job poses some degree of risk. Even office workers could get electric shocks, infected paper cuts, and debilitating boredom. There are some jobs, that offer just enough danger to appeal to the inner thrill-seeker in all of us. For some of us, no other job could compare to these dangerous jobs that may even give the most avid adrenaline junkie pause.

High-Rise Window Washer

Anyone who has ever looked down from atop a skyscraper can understand the type of thrill-seeker required for this particular job. Even with various safety measures in place, the risk of falling remains. Fortunately, falls in this profession are quite rare, though the outcome is quite predictable when they do occur.

Rodeo Clown

I mean, seriously, whoever thought it would be a good idea to chase down an angry bull, right? And yet, some have made it an art form and a profession. Because every rodeo needs a clown, there are plenty of work opportunities for talented thrill-seekers. You will need certification from a Rodeo Clown School to do this job, however.

Bush Pilot

As if flying wasn’t dangerous enough, bush pilots fly into areas that aren’t exactly landing strip friendly places. These pilots have to have a commercial pilot license, nerves of steel, excellent piloting skills, and even better knowledge of their craft in case repairs are needed upon landing. The pay, however, is handsome for those who dare.


One of the more dangerous jobs that only a thrill-seeker could love involves running into raging wildfires in an attempt to save human lives, preserve property, and protect wildlife. While hotshot crews are usually the starting position, those who work their way up to smokejumpers literally parachute into the middle of these raging fires to help fight these fires.

Whether you’ve always dreamed of being a rodeo clown or bush pilot or you’re looking for some new thrill to seek, these jobs are sure to deliver when it comes to heart-pounding excitement you’re not likely to experience with an ordinary day in an office cubicle.
