Finding a position in today’s job market is hard enough as it is, but what if you were unlucky enough to have one of these careers? A user on Reddit posted a link to this list of extinct jobs. Likely extinct because the employee quit their job. They are all real jobs that people used to have back in the day. It’s strange to think that something called a knocker-upper was hired to wake people up, but it’s even weirder that these jobs just winked out of existence.
2. Human Alarm Clock – Knocker-uppers were essentially alarm clocks. They were hired to ensure that people would wake up on time for their own jobs. They would use sticks, clubs, or pebbles to knock on clients’ windows and doors.
3. Ice Cutter – Before modern refrigeration techniques became widespread, ice cutters would saw up the ice on frozen lakes for people to use in their cellars and refrigerators. It was a dangerous job often done in extreme conditions.
