2) Dolphin Tank Cleaner
It's been suggested that Dolphins are the most intelligent species on the planet. So rightly so, they need people to clean up after them. Thoughts of calculus, wave form particle physics, and balancing balls on one's nose, leave little time to tidy up a tank. You've got the mechanical skills, they don't, so use 'em.

Marine Biology. No longer just a fish squeezer or a hired hand spending all your free time trying to get the water out of your ears. Now you're in the big leagues, studying all types of strange, exotic, bioluminescent, poisonous-barbed, ink-secreting, spear spitting sea life...maybe you should invest in some goggles.

Moving up in the world tends to mean being less hands-on, and more managerial. As a protector of whales you now spend most of your time behind a desk on the phone lobbying the bureaucrats in SimCity to pass more stringent whale rights legislation. It's not exactly working for the man, but it's working in really close proximity to him. S M T W T F S Mechanical 8

Um, well, there's this pantheon of deities in ancient Greek culture, and, well, one of the original three, well not actually the very original but the most well known three, split up the world into three sections. Poseidon took the seas, but the seas are really big ... so even though he's a Divine Being he could still really use some help; a right hand Sim if you will. Now all that's left to do is find that local trident store, hope the big guy doesn't ask you to deliver any plagues, and avoid payment in actual clams ... S M T W T F S Mechanical 9
