You may almost always see "Help Wanted" or "Now Hiring" signs outside of businesses. Many applicants aren't applying for traditional employment, despite the fact that businesses are looking to hire a ton of people. When I started to put this article together, I went to indeed.com to see just who was hiring, and for what positions they need to fill. As of today, they have 339 jobs that need to be filled in the Watford City area.

With that in mind, I thought making a list of some unique and unusual employment opportunities could be useful, if not interesting. This might even assist you in finding what you're looking for in Watford City if you're attempting to do something a little different.
