/ The 2013 "What would you like to do for a living"
I would like to have been a professional pilot (aircraft not ships)
Mountain Equipment gear tester
I would've liked to have been on the other side, just to see if they enjoyed it as much as me.
Joined the forces. Or archaeology Indy Jones style. Or what I do now but joining earlier in life which would give more future opportunities. But I'm happy enough.
Word wrangler, kitten fluffer or trainer of stunt hamsters.
Full time musician - probably based in california.
Lion tamer. (Obviously.)
A selective archaeologist who only investigated interesting British neolithic and early bronze age stuff, I doubt such a role exists so as a compromise I'd like to have been Wiltshire county archaeologist.
I'm in the position of seeking a job inline with my academic training for later this year; ideally something with an analytical or process chem basis... with the longterm aim of being in a position to move into the oil-services sector.
If you had your time again dream jobs would remain as far away for most as they did this time.
It's not too late, the problem is I still have no idea.
I had the chance to go to agricultural college when I left school, but turned it down as back when I was 16, I thought higher wages lead to higher happiness in life. How wrong I was.
I'd like to build little assault courses for squirrels and also try to make a living from my cruelty free fur business, my main problem at the moment is stopping the mink attacking the coat wearer and teaching my fox fur hat to sit still.
I should have chosen Physics or Medicine over Biology, much better job academic job market due to non-academic alternatives.
Oh well, back to writing applications....
Did one shift working as a cameraman for one of those 'television x' type channels and never went back. The seediest, nastiest thing I've ever done.
I watched a lot of Quincy in my youth.
I watched a lot of Casey Jones in my youth.
As a nurse I was happiest rummaging around in absolutely filthy sloughy smelly wounds, and re-dressing them. Alas, no longer.
and at least now I DO sometimes get to drive steam trains!
