I'm Asking: What Job Would You Choose to Try For One Week?

I'm Asking: What Job Would You Choose to Try For One Week?

Many of us know that all jobs aren't always what they seem to be on the surface, and some people with seemingly fabulous and interesting jobs warn others against getting involved. Wouldn't it be fun to test the waters in a job that peaks your interest for one week? Not only would it allow us a coveted insider's look, but it would give the no-strings-attached opportunity to do something we may have always wanted to do.

Redegg - Samantha Brown really does have it made, doesn't she? I've always loved watching her show and dreaming about what it must be like to have that job!! I'd love to be the marketing director for the Hyatt. That sounds pretty fabulous.

i think that i would love to try being a chef for a week, or perhaps working at a movie studio since that seems like a lot of fun as well. it's hard - since i've worked in a lot of different fields and overall i've had great experiences so far.

Does "lady of leisure" count as a job? Just kidding. 1. Fiction or magazine editor. 2. CEO of a big company like Google or Amazon. 3. Film producer. I think the common theme of the above jobs is that I like to be in charge of things ;).
