Help Wanted? Squirrels for Hire!

Dear Creative Writers,
Squirrels were one of Roald Dahl's muses when writing Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. Take a look at the video and see how these incredible rodents separated the good nuts from the bad nuts.
Here is your Creative Writing Challenge: Can you think of a clever job for a squirrel like Roald Dahl did? Write a paragraph or two through the squirrel's perspective, explaining why he or she should get the job!
If for some reason you can't think of a clever job for a squirrel, I'll give you one. What if a squirrel wanted to be an electrician? Have your squirrel tell us why he/she should be hired.
Go nuts!
