If you could have any job in the world, with education and money not being an issue, what would you want to do as your dream job??

Mine would be the Monorail Operator at Disneyland or engineering a commuter train somewhere, most likely CalTrain or ACE in the Bay Area.

My dream job would be many things. I would love to cure the world's diseases. Be able to solve people's problems. Write and direct the greatest movie of all time. Travel the world and photograph it. Be a good husband, and father. A good friend. And well I'd love to be a Formula One Driver.  Smile

I would love to be a mid/high level executive at a major financial company (think Edward Jones)... I've always had a love for the way economics works, and then one day I was at DFW in a Skylink station holding my 'airways' magazine in my hand, when a business man with the AAdvantage Executive Platinum luggage tags walked up to me and asked about my interest in aviation.. He and I had a nice chat about how he worked for an investment company, and he was a 3million miler with AA... That pretty much sealed the deal for me.

As a dream job, probably somewhere in an analyst type of field.. I can sit and watch CNBC all day, every day, and not lose interest.

It would be an amazing field for me to go into, but I fear studying it for a career will put me too far into debt with student loans, so I think I'll end up sticking with my current path.. But thanks anyway!  Wink

This was something that first came to mind, and I can not do anything else then second what you wrote.

Although,
It's not a dream job in that sentense, but I would really like to help kids who have been abused one way or the other, and put the idiots who did it away for life.
