This is a relatively simple exercise, but with a little work, you can stretch the idea a bit.
Make a list of jobs you might hire somebody to perform, which require a fair amount of skill or copious amounts of labor. Book binding, bicycle repair, satellite repair (not satellite TV), ...satellite tv repair (why not?), grave digging, map making, embalming... get a little crazy. Find some that surprise you or make you laugh.
Now, imagine what would happen if you hired a poet to do that job, because you just did.
Don't limit yourself. Take the idea and run. It could be spectacular to see this occupation through a poets eyes. Or a spectacular failure. Perhaps a bit of both?
Alternately, you could hire a musician, painter, trapeze artist or anything else you really want if it stirs an idea.
