9 New Jobs for Santa When Christmas Is Canceled

What if Santa Claus Considered a Career Change?

5. Pilot

Median salary: $117,975

We have to imagine one of the best parts of Santa’s current job is getting to travel around the world on Christmas Eve. So why not make that a full-time gig?

It might take a little more aviation training and a little less Christmas magic to make the transition from flying reindeer to commercial jets, but the upside is he wouldn’t have to do all of his work in such a compressed amount of time. But becoming a pilot seems to be a natural progression since Santa has been navigating the skies for years. And his safety record is impeccable since we’ve never heard about any reindeer-related crashes.
