Do Tell: What's Your Dream Job?

Do Tell: What's Your Dream Job?

Finding one's career path takes some trial and error. And being unhappy in your work does indeed feel like trial and like error; it's one of the things people vent about the most.

Sometimes our immediate needs compete with our long-tern goals or dreams. The bills must get paid, even while we move slowly in our chosen direction. Let's say we could move all that aside, ladies. Let's say you could have any career, right now, anywhere (putting aside the fame and celebrity choices, ok?). If money wasn't and wouldn't be an issue, do tell, what would your dream job be?

Well besides being an astronaut? Or a journalist who travels and writes reviews for Conde Nast or Destinations magazine all year? How about being an art director for a huge international retailer, say Burberry? A position where they pay you to fly to exotic locations and oversee photo shoots. Then help design the print, the signage and the catalogs. Then a big fat paycheck for all of it. I could handle that.

I would love to be a trend forecaster - in other words, go to different countries, pick up on their trends in clothing, and relay it back to the States, where I would proceed to make sure they become "in style". :)

Professional treasure hunter! You know like in the movies where someone rich pays a Nicholas Cage type to go on a world wide adventure to find some sort of treasure.

a respected scriptwriter. I would very much love to write for the gyllenhaal family. A non cheesy indie for jake and maggie together. I think she's so beautiful and he's so yummy. He can really melt someone with that smile.

I want to be a mom someday. I think that's the ultimate dream job. Professionally though - I think I'm there. I just want to start my own business doing what I do now for the company I work for on my own.

i loved working for the politicians i worked for UNTIL: they started believing their own press. so i guess working for a politican who's beliefs i shared for the first year they are in office. then it's time to move on.

I don't know... it's easy to think something is your dream job but the reality of it might be nothing like it seems from the outside. In theory, I'd like to be a counselor at a high school.

I'd love to be a professional shopper. My mom used to have a friend who did it, and she got to travel all over the world. That would be my dream job. Especially since I'm so good at it ;) If anyone knows how to get into this line of work, please let me know. I'm suffering at my current job, and would love to look into this, but have no idea how to go about it.
