What's your dream job?

17 replies • Last post

This as an antipode to the Dustin's 'Worst job ever" thread. Wink

So, did you find it guys or you're still looking for it?

I've had never been too ambitious when it's about my career so the job has ever been the necessary evil in my life but I'm sure most of you don't think that way.

So.. are you living the dream?

hahaha great shape
in the way of thinking about life we could be brothers from a other mother lol lol lol

to be honest
i've always hated work and i could never understand the concept of having
a "career"

nevertheless i did two apprenticeships as
operational metalworker and
orthopedist mechanic and finished both.
later on i studied product design but didn't finished it... and know what...i hated all of it

so to answer your question.. something
like a "dream job" didn't exist in my world lol lol

When I think again this might be a quite stupid thread cause I've never had any dreams of any kind of job myself lol

I have 2 , and strangely enough I have worked them both in the past. I was a snowboard instructor for the better part of 6 or 7 seasons. I was paid to hang out on my snowboard and teach younger kids mostly, but the ages varied. There were days I remember just boarding with my friends all day long and getting paid my hourly wage at the same time. It's tough to make a living working for less then half the year.

The other , since I was a little guy, I always wanted to be a firefighter. I was a volunteer firefighter for two different departments not too long ago. I love to help people, and the feeling I would get knowing I did my part just because I chose to and not for any money made me feel pretty good.
I should mention the adrenaline rush I got when dispatch comes over the radio in the middle of the night, and my best bud and I who lived together at the time would be dressed and out the door in just a couple minutes. That jolt of adrenaline was an awesome feeling, I'll never forget it.

I really like the job I have now where I get to stay at home and do writing and whatnot. I've been doing it for many years now, and there's some discipline needed to make sure you get that work done, even when you want to just go take a nap. On the plus side, there have been days where I don't feel like getting out of my sweatpants... and I don't have to!

I also am a licensed drone pilot in the United States, and I've been doing that as a side-gig for the past two years. I looooove doing that most of the time. I've gotten to go to some cool places and fly something around while grabbing pictures and video. The best ones are where I get to program a flight route, show up to the job site, hit a button, let the drone fly itself and come back, and then get paid.

Of course, even with that drone job that I love, there are scary moments. I've clipped a bird over a multi-million dollar construction site and last week I was doing a shoot for a house foreclosure and someone nearby began shooting a gun. I can't say for sure they were shooting at my drone, but it was close (100 yards or so) and it scared the crap outta me!

Is this some Law of Attraction thing... fake it until you make it?
They say if you practice the behavior, thinking and feeling of a person you want to become, you will become that person. It that works, tell us... and I am not being sarcastic.

Lmao, if it works I wont just tell you guys, I'll share my winnings also. But this would probably be more efficient if we all worked together on this, so everybody needs to start practicing winning a jackpot now lol

@warofthegods,

Now I know the reason why you like the "flame buster" slot game, the difference is where in that job you definitely don't want to reach level 5, right? Hehehe ...goodluck man..that was amazing job Thumb Up

Thanks Eljuno, no, definitely wouldnt want to have to climb to level 5 of a burning building. But luckily for me the departments I served on were in small towns. Actually one small town, and the first fire department I joined up on was a rural fire department.
A few pump trucks , tank trucks and the funding wasn't up to par either but we did the job and were thankful for what was provided for us to keep us as safe as possible. We were volunteers, the way that worked was we did get paid a minimum for each call we went to, as well as an hourly wage, but every cent of our wages went into the fire department.

To find a dream job, I think you need to have something you're passionate about first. Then it's about finding work that allows you to pursue whatever it is you're passionate about. And hoping it pays a decent income!

The hardest part is actually having something you are truly passionate about....I'm still figuring it out.

Oh but loving this job in the mean time Ed! Joking Scared Tongue

That's very true klaw, I think about it the same way as you, unfortunately I still don't know what that passion thing might be Smile
