1. Lifeguard

Lifeguards may get paid to sit on the beach, but there's more to the job than just that. They also must possess the skill and mental acuity to respond quickly to emergencies. Beach lifeguards, for example, must pass rigorous physical tests before receiving their certification, and guards at many amusement parks go through weekly training sessions to ensure that their first-aid and rescue skills are up-to-date.
