Roller coasters, ski jumps, skate parks, and race tracks are all perfect places for adrenaline junkies. However, when these thrill seekers need to start making a living, it is time to find thrills in the workplace. Just like the thrills of leisure time, adrenaline can be found in the workplace. Here are three career options that are perfect for adrenaline junkies.

Skydiving Instructor
Skydiving is quite possibly one of the most exciting things that you can do in your life. The free fall is one of the closest experiences that humans will ever have to flying. It is easy to see how someone could become addicted to jumping out of a plane and feeling the rush of the freefall. If you are looking to turn this into a career, there is a process for becoming a skydiving instructor. After 500 jumps or 3 hours of freefall time, you can become a skydiving instructor. Following your passion of skydiving could take you different levels of the skydiving profession. You can become a skydiving coach, instructor, examiner, pro, and judge. This pathway to skydiving success can be a long one, but one that is filled with almost more adrenaline than just about any other job out there.

Security Detail
Have you ever wondered what it would be like to be a bodyguard for a celebrity or to protect foreign diplomats? If you want to be part of what seems like a fast paced action movie, working on a security detail might just be the job for you. Becoming part of a security team, like those at Trident Security, is actually easier than it might first appear to be. While you will have to learn the ins and outs of the security industry, once you have mastered these skills you will have a lifelong career with many different options.

Wildland Firefighter
If jumping out of an airplane into a fire infested forest doesn't scream adrenaline, what job will? Becoming a wildland firefighter is a relatively quick process that will bring you into the action quickly. Safety is the most important thing that you must remember when you are considering a career as a wildland firefighter. The speed in which these fires move creates a very dangerous situation for all firefighters involved in fighting back the blaze. You must receive your Red Card before you can fight any wildfires. This training will give you all of the skills that you will need in order to stay safe during your adrenaline-packed firefight.

If you are looking for a rush on a daily basis, these just might be the right jobs for you. While you will need to take extra precautions on the job to ensure your safety, you will find that your work will excite you and have you jumping out of bed in the morning. Don't confine yourself to a boring cubicle when you should be going on daring adventures every day. Explore the career options we mentioned above, as well as any you find in your own research, to find the perfect fit for you.
