Tram Tales: Odd Jobs

View descriptionShare

Ask a group of teenagers about their dream jobs and you’ll likely hear a familiar list: doctor, lawyer, architect, psychologist... 

According to an OECD survey, these are some of the most desired jobs among students worldwide. 

But what about all the jobs they don’t even know exist?  

This week, we’re bringing you stories from off the beaten career path. Stories about people along the number 19 tramline finding fulfilment in unconventional workplaces, from cemeteries to adult stores.   

It's the second episode of Tram Tales. Our new series about Melburnians who live, work, and travel along the number 19 route — the city’s central artery. 


Featuring stories by Sam Irvine, Longfei Zhou, Ellen Cutler, and Fanting Ming.
