FIVE WAYS TO BREAK INTO THE FUNERAL INDUSTRY

So you carry a strong fascination for the darker side of things. Maybe you want to forge a career in the funeral services industry?

Get your hands dirty and delve into the biz a bit!

EMPIREss Caitlin Doughty, a mortician who helps people understand death via her hilarious and fact-packed Ask A Mortician webseries, suggests these low-cost ways to find out whether you really want to spend your time dancing with corpses:

  • VISIT CEMETERIES, MEMORIALS and FUNERAL HOMES. It’s not morbid, they are there to be visited!

 

  • TALK TO PEOPLE IN THE INDUSTRY.  Any funeral or death worker who loves their job will want to talk.

 

  • VOLUNTEER AT A FUNERAL HOME.  Just don’t expect a glamorous job right away, you have to work your way up.
  • WATCH MOVIES! A Certain Kind of Death, a documentary about the funeral industry and Departures, a Japanese film that won Best Foreign Language Film at the 2009 Oscars, are a great place to start.
