Hate Desk Work? 6 Good Non-Traditional Jobs

While many people are perfectly content with a structured, 9-to-5 job, some workers aren't made for that type of environment. They crave variety, constant challenges and adventure at work. They often don't want to be at a desk.

A worker who is bored on the job not only suffers himself, but his lack of focus may be detrimental to the employer, too. According to a U.K. survey of approximately 100 workers, nearly 25 percent said they felt bored most of the time and that it hurt their job performance. Eighty percent of workers said that being bored at work makes them lose concentration. More than 50 percent said that chronic boredom led them to make on-the-job mistakes.
