I’ve been doing some fun, pretend-y thinking lately on dream jobs. If you could create your perfect job, what would it be?
In some person’s case, it might be my current job — it’s a scuba diver’s dream! I’m so fortunate to have landed my current position at Bonnier Corp., shaping digital content for Sport Diver and Scuba Diving magazines and brands. And as I learn to scuba dive myself, I think there’s a really good chance it will morph into my dream job.
But, if you could create your dream job, either by striking out on your own, or creating your own job within an existing organization, what would it be?
I’ve been tossing around a few ideas for myself:
1) Social media consultant for meteorologists. I love weather, I love social media! If I did this, I would get a meteorology degree and travel around, teaching mets the best way to communicate with their captive audience and help save lives.
2) Career consultant for creative millenials. So many college grads have been affected by the recession, toiling away at jobs not related at all to what they studied in school. I would love to help these young people position themselves for a true future career.
3) Digital content/marketing in food/dining. I write freelance for the Disney Food Blog. And well, I just love food in general. My husband is a chef, we’re always cooking up new things, and I would love to figure out a way to make a career of it.
4) Personal assistant to the Stefani-Rossdale family. I adore Gwen Stefani and I feel like she and her family would be so much fun to be around and manage. Hey baby, hey baby, hey.
So, then, what’s your dream job? Maybe one of these? Share.
