Nasa is officially hiring for a Planetary Protection Officer. This basically means you are protecting the WHOLE planet from Aliens.

You are a REAL LIFE Ghostbuster.

I can already see your name on the big screen in lights when this job becomes a movie!

The job description says:

NASA maintains policies for planetary protection applicable to all space flight missions that may intentionally or unintentionally carry Earth organisms and organic constituents to the planets or other solar system bodies, and any mission employing spacecraft, which are ntended [sic] to return to Earth and its biosphere with samples from extraterrestrial targets of exploration.

According to Business Insider, there are only two such positions in the entire world: this one and a similar one at the European Space Agency. 

The job requires a three-year minimum with the organization with the possibility of extending your tenure another two years.  It also pays somewhere between $124,406 to $187,000 a year.
