Flight Attendant

Fame

You really don't want fame in this job. The most famous flight attendants in U.S. history are those who alerted air traffic control about the 9/11 hijackings. They are considered heroes, but they are sadly no longer with us. In short—if people everywhere know your name, it's because something awful happened on one of your flights.

Leave the fame to actors. At least when they crash and burn, it's on stage.
