With the release of the movie Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen, we got to thinking about what it would be like if Transformers were walking around among us. I suppose that’s the premise of the show and movies already, but our minds still raced.
As a child, I was all about the TV show. I had the action figures. I memorized lines. I might have even pretended my Big Wheels could go from plastic vehicle into intimidating, robotic machine. Don’t judge me.
With the movie franchise taking off and raking in plenty of cash, I’ve had a wave of nostalgia overcome me. My $10 Skyfire sits somewhere in my parents’ attic and I wish it were on my desk.
So in the spirit of childhood memories, the movie’s release and The Work Buzz’s love for all things career, we put together a list of 10 jobs that would be good for the Transformers. I’d love to see Optimus Prime wear a name tag or Omega Supreme sit in a cubicle. But that’s just me.
- Public transportation…worker?
Normally we point people to positions like bus driver and train operator, but the Transformers could be the transportation with no additional help needed.
- School principal
If you’re a badly behaving student, wouldn’t you be scared to hear thumping, metallic steps coming down the hall?
- Junkyard proprietor
I think that one’s pretty self explanatory.
- Assembly line worker
Again, not hard to see how it’s a good fit. And between the machine-like precision and personal touch, you’d be getting the best of both worlds with them as employees.
I dare you to try to slip past Whirl if he says the club’s full. Go ahead–try it.
- Laser eye surgeon
Why bother with fancy medical offices? All you need is a big enough room to house a transforming giant. Oh, and a really big lab coat.
- Search and rescue
They can find crime and eradicate it. They can find missing persons.
- Pizza delivery person
They’ll always be on time. And they can heat it up on the way!
- Waste management specialists
The heightened sense of smell and the ability to get dirty without being squeamish. Perfect fit.
You can’t always rely on friends to help you move, and many movers charge by the hour as well as amount of workers. Why not hire one Transformer for an hour to get everything from the old place to the new one?
