Unusual Career Options

Fed up with your job? Have a long list of obscure qualifications? A gifted linguistic? Then you could apply to be the Academic Assistant Monk to the Abbot. All you require is;

A degree related to Buddhist studies; fluency in English, two South-east Asian languages; two Buddhist canonical languages; and five years of Theravada Buddhist monastic training.

At which point you will be permitted to be a full time unpaid volunteer for the Abbot. I suspect they will not be fighting off applicants, but who knows?
