If you could have any job in the world, would you choose yours?

I'm starting high school next year so I don't have a job yet. I have many things that I want to be, but I'm not 100% sure yet. I want to be an Artist / Entertainer, Police Officer, Navy Pilot. But all I wanted to do since 3rd grade was be a marine biologist. I want to study and take care of animals. Sea World would be absolutely amazing. The orca and dolphin shows are amazing. I have to feed a stingray, they are so soft when you pet them. Manta and Atlanta are the best roller coasters I've ever been on. It would also mean that he could get out of Seattle. Now don't get me wrong, Washington is

Don't get me wrong, Washington is amazing, but it's always so cold and raining. The San Diego is beautiful and always sunny. Now the answer to the question ... Hell yeah. Without hesitation or regrets.

There are times when I start work at 7am on Sundays. Yes, I'm not kidding. I really enjoy the morning sunlight reflecting off my face while training one of my amazing clients.

I have been a life coach for almost 5 years, but it was not until recently that I started doing it full time. The reason I did it full time is because I felt confident enough to do it.

Yes, I love having a work-life balance, but there are times when a client is only free on a certain day or time, and I couldn't be happier to make an adjustment to my schedule to accommodate their session.

Yes, I love having a work-life balance, but there are times when a client is only free on a certain day or time, and I couldn't be happier to make an adjustment to my schedule to accommodate their session.

Given the above statements, I'll let you decide my answer to this question :)

Basically from this question I understand two things (correct me if I'm wrong):

  1. I can GET any job without the "HR barrier"
  2. If I can't do the job, I quit or get fired.

In fact, this opens my horizon to any job that I am curious to know a few things about. I think I would choose:

  • mechanical
  • locksmith
  • electrical technician
  • carpenter (especially furniture making)
  • welder
  • house painter (not only painting, but also being able to put bathroom tiles, wooden floor, etc.)

Host of BBC's TopGear.
Well known, well paid, well traveled and extremely well running beautiful machines.

No. I would pick the current Bill Gates.

I went to university and studied "health and social work" and then another two years of psychology, sociology and home economics.

I was in my late thirties when I went to college to study law (LLB) and that's when I discovered that I was good at accounting and business finance, when I scored 98% on the assignments portion of the module.

It surprised me, because at my job, I had worked for corporations where I was responsible for getting staff paid and that made me really tense, when I was doing it, because of the responsibility. If I made a mistake, it meant that people would not get paid on time, so

I went to university and studied "health and social work" and then another two years of psychology, sociology and home economics.

I was in my late thirties when I went to college to study law (LLB) and that's when I discovered that I was good at accounting and business finance, when I scored 98% on the assignments portion of the module.

It surprised me, because at my job, I had worked for corporations where I was responsible for getting staff paid and that made me really tense, when I was doing it, because of the responsibility. If I made a mistake, it meant people wouldn't get paid on time, so I was meticulous.

But I didn't enjoy it, because the pressure and distractions made it take longer.

So I related "accounting and business finance" as stressful, a necessary duty, and definitely not a pleasant one.

But then I had an amazing finance and accounting tutor in college - he wasn't a fool and he didn't gossip (unlike all the other tutors) and since he was very professional he seemed to learn everything he was telling me and that's quite a phenomenon. weird for me.

Calculating the “break-even” figures for production fascinated me and I found the entire module very satisfactory.

If I could undo the ten years I spent working in sales / marketing and recruiting positions, I would replace it with accounting. Just because I think my job roles were too burdensome and drained me, while accounting means less public exposure.

However, the thing is, I have met people who started their careers late in life ... many people go back to college as adults and I once met a lady who was over 90 years old and always wanted to travel, her husband no 't and then he got sick and there was no longer a choice. He was studying languages ​​and stepped on his first plane at 90! A traveling linguist born again - at 90!

We can start over, it's not easy and it probably gets harder as we get older, but not always! Although at 43 I don't think for a minute that I could find the motivation to "be a neurosurgeon", because that would mean years of learning and training in the classroom ... but that doesn't mean that others wouldn't or couldn't. .

Many people change careers, sometimes people go broke and then build successful businesses.

It is never easy to change, but it is completely possible!

I would like to be an urban planner in a Southeast Asian country so that I can design sustainable cities and teach greedy politicians and entrepreneurs not to ruin the earth's resources.

I would like to be located at the government or city level to be able to make impactful decisions.

I'm a big fan of land, forests, water, and the natural landscape, so as a city planner I can help balance growth and keep flora and fauna alive.

Societies can prosper and be happier.

Eg: having a small park at the end of each street for people to sit and shade.

Don't let greedy real estate owners

Societies can prosper and be happier.

Eg: having a small park at the end of each street for people to sit and shade.

Don't let greedy real estate owners destroy beaches with ugly hotels.

I would like to live on a less dirty and less greedy planet.

The role of an urban planner has been neglected and we need more young people to apply for such an education at the university.

Too many beautiful forests have been cut down.

Too many wild species disappearing.

Most importantly, our pollinators like birds, bees and insects are also disappearing.

The Earth needs more balance and if I can play this role, we can manage climate change, the melting of the Arctic and Antarctic glaciers, the disappearance of fish populations and have a richer and greener land.

This would result in fewer illnesses and less use of man-made conditions like air conditioning, etc.

We will give our children and the future generation a better and less greedy world.

Easy answer for me.

I would be a lawyer specializing in intellectual property (IP), which is what I always wanted to be since I was little.

I grew up in a working-class family where college was only considered appropriate for male children.

My parents were horrified that, as a woman, I even had the desire to go to college and then to law school.

As a result, I had to work multiple jobs to be able to pay myself through the bachelor's and master's programs.

I would be a lawyer specializing in intellectual property (IP), which is what I always wanted to be since I was little.

I grew up in a working-class family where college was only considered appropriate for male children.

My parents were horrified that, as a woman, I even had the desire to go to college and then to law school.

As a result, I had to work multiple jobs to be able to pay myself through the bachelor's and master's programs.

Law school seemed too overwhelming to me to try and get by after previous degree programs. Ending my four years of undergraduate school took a lot of time and money out of my life.

When I was in graduate school working on my Ph.D., I was mentally, physically, and financially drained.

Before I could work on my doctoral thesis, I just stopped pushing myself to extremes. I had reached my breaking point.

Some years after moving to Dallas, I was offered the opportunity to get paid in full if I agreed to become an intellectual property attorney for a large Dallas-based software company, where I was working as a systems engineering project manager.

They would pay for my studies in law school, but I would have to agree to work for them long enough for their investment in me to pay off.

I thought it was a great deal.

As I was in the early stages of preparing to attend law school through the software company I worked for, my late husband unexpectedly developed life-threatening heart problems.

As a result of his serious illness, he was unable to work for over a year while fighting for his own survival.

Instead of being able to go to law school, I got a number of additional consulting jobs.

These various jobs were in addition to my full-time job taking care of my husband and mounting medical bills.

Heart disease can be a bit expensive in terms of hospital stays. Even with insurance, we had significant medical bills and my husband was unable to work during his illness.

Fortunately, my husband recovered after major heart surgery and I was fortunate to have him in my life for several more years after that period of time.

At this point in my life, it seems too late to start the long school journey and start a new career. Also, the legal profession appears to be overcrowded at the moment.

Maybe in my next life I will be born into a family of lawyers and can try again.

Fighter pilot

I wanted to be a fighter pilot when I was younger. I love going to air shows, hearing the thunderous sound and seeing the incredible power and maneuverability of the Blackbird and other fighter jets, and seeing fresh air shows by the Blue Angels. Who can resist such coldness?

However, if you have the desire to do any work for a day, you need to give it some more thought. Being a pilot is not something you can learn to master in one day. Make a mistake and you are dead. So I'll have to let this go and choose between other options.

President of the USA

I would consider being the president of the USA for a day ... it would be great to know what really happened with the JFK assassination, the truth about aliens and what happened in Roswell, NM, or any other series of stories from conspiracy. . Maybe pass some laws that help equality ... but can it be achieved in a single day? There is no danger and safety is top notch. I could learn a lot and maybe, just maybe, I can do something good, but in just one day? I seriously doubt it. You will ignore this.


Being a tennis player in a top-level finals match

I am a terrible tennis player. And that? If I lose, I would still raise a few million dollars and just walk away. I could do a lot with that money! Don't worry about security and go with a cool million. This would be a great choice.

Being dad

Now this would be a really cool job to do for a day. Anything you say goes, and unlike the President of the United States, you wouldn't have to fight Congress or the House of Representatives to get things done. I would schedule a very important event at the Vatican all day early in the morning and let it go all day and all night! I would fix it with women, gays, pagans, they all go to heaven! I will declare the "get your money back from church day!" I could do a lot of good here for everyone, but I don't have the money to go! Security is top-notch, and unlike the US Presidency, there is no network lockdown, so this is a very good option.

So, I have narrowed the options down to two, being a tennis player in a top finals game or being Pope for a day. It is a difficult choice between these two. One will make my life much better, the other will make the life of many much better.

It will definitely feel good to say that Being a Pope will be the best option, but I don't know how I will choose between these two options when my selfishness comes into the equation. I guess I'll have to wait until the actual offer comes in to see how I react at that point.

For a long time I thought that the best job in the world would be a conductor of international reputation, like Vladimir Ashkenazy, Simon Rattle or the like.

Working on making beautiful music, stamping the vision of a piece in the orchestra, and then presenting it to the audience, I can't imagine anything more exciting. And one would never be unemployed!

I don't because I never learned to play a musical instrument in early childhood, I never became an international star, and therefore could not migrate to being a conductor. Hell, I only started learning to play the piano two years ago and I'm 79,

Mine. Exciting, huh? I don't think I have the best life in the world, but I have the best life for myself. I wouldn't care if I got paid better, or if I lived in a more exciting place, or had a better office or something like that, but none of those things would make me happier or make my life more satisfying. They would make it a little easier and maybe more enjoyable, but every time you make a change, you give up something for an improvement. I would not mind a lower teaching load, but that would change the nature of the institution, as it would increase the costs of instruction, and that would not be enough.

What's good about my job? I can play with computers and then I talk to people about playing with computers. It takes a long time and there are parts that aren't fun (like grading), but it's better than working for a living. ;)

Why would anyone want to be president? A lot of responsibility and not as much power as it seems. Any job that pays billions? Money doesn't make people happy. Zuck's life just seems weirder and weirder and it's definitely not fun. Maybe someone like Paul Allen, who does awesome and silly / cool things with his money (like remodel the old Cinerama in Seattle) would live an interesting life, spending / donating his money, but I'll keep what I have. However, I will accept a 300% raise without complaint.
