I have an offering for the 'BS Job' title that I am not sure I have seen listed on the site before (it's my bro's job, not mine.. I swear!):
Title: User Interface Design
Be artistic w/o being an artist; be psychological w/o being a psychologist; make cool virtual stuff w/o being an programmer.
Pay: Variant.. though if it's affiliated w/ Google (and what isn't these days?), you're set!
Good: Get to act pretentious and be around pretentious people. Transition between work, computer games, and on-line chat is seamless.
Bad: May require some prestige - such as entry in to CMU or the like - and luck to get into. Also may have to learn everything you can about Adobe Illustrator.
Ugly: Seeing what happens to your designs when the coders try to actualize them.
