INSIDE THE JOB
About this series:
A lot of us have run-of-the-mill jobs. But some Austinites go to work every day doing odd, unusual or even downright weird jobs. In an occasional new series, Statesman business reporter Brian Gaar will take you inside some careers that you might never have known existed. If you have – or know of — an unusual job in the Austin area and would like to nominate it for the series, e-mail email@example.com.
