Pictures: America's least common jobs

Have you ever had a friend that claimed to be a model, but you suspected that he or she really wasn't one? She may have had "model" listed as her job on Facebook, or he may have had dozens of glamour-shots posted on, but you never saw an actual ad campaign or commercial? Well, your hunch was probably correct, because according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, there are only 1,200 people in the U.S. who are actually employed as models. The fact that there are so few working models isn't all that surprising: It's a pretty elite industry. What is surprising, though, is how many "normal" jobs are just as hard to break into, because they are either hyper-specialized, they require lots of training, or there just aren't many jobs available. According to the BLS, these 18 jobs are the least common in America. --Kaitlin Madden, CareerBuilder
