Believe it or not, in some fields, there are jobs just waiting to be claimed, like plump, juicy oranges in the upper reaches of the tree. Oh where are these positions?

Forbes tells us that the "10 Hardest Jobs to Fill in America" aren't rare breeds like "professional philatelist" or "horse trainer to the stars." No, these have been waiting for you in plain sight. They all either have specific educational requirements (that no one is interested in pursuing), are predicated on years of experience, or they're just plain thankless, undesirable ways to earn a living.
