(Photo : GETTY IMAGES) A Chinese shopper sleeps on a bed in the showroom of the IKEA store on July 6, 2014 in Beijing, China. The stores are designed with extra room displays given the tendency for customers to make a visit an all-day affair. Store management does not discourage shoppers from sleeping on Ikea furniture, even marking them with signs inviting customers to try them out.
This could literally be everyone's "dream job" and the only position where sleeping on the job will not be a problem.
A company in Shanghai is making headlines for what is perhaps the most coveted job position in the world: a professional sleeper. A manufacturer of dietary supplements in mainland China is looking to pay a salary of 100,000RMB (USD14,400) yearly to their professional sleepers.

Successful candidates will test the supplements and provide a comprehensive report on its effects. However, it's not just all snoozing. The professional sleepers will have to put themselves in different sleeping patterns mirroring people of different occupations.
For instance, a software programmer's sleep pattern is erratic and vastly different to those working a normal day job, as well as people on night shifts. After adapting to different people's sleep pattern, the professional sleepers will produce a report that includes the quality of sleep, feedback, and suggestions.
The job does not require any past experiences, but a "love for sleep" is needed (who doesn't love sleep?). People from different job industries can apply.
Getting paid to sleep is slowly becoming famous as it carves a niche in the job field. In the US, hospitals, research facilities, and even NASA, hire professional sleepers for studies, with annual payouts reaching as high as USD300,000.
