So, ignoring the world recession right now, the monstrous costs to starting up businesses or getting the proper education for a good job, I'm sure we all have lofty dreams of what we want to do with our lives. I'm sure our older members have jobs as well or are currently finishing their studies in preparation for hitting the job market.
I myself work for my family business. We specialize in construction, electrical work, plumbing, heating, refrigeration, landscaping and we're even starting to branch out into car repairs (just have to wait for our state certifications to arrive in the mail) and interior design.
Ever since starting a family of my own I've mostly been stuck with the secretary work in the business. I get contracts signed, I set up job opportunities, I deal with the legal complications, I meet customers, etc. It's not something I really like doing, but it allows me to maintain a somewhat stable full time job (even if it is crappy) while being able to manage my parenting responsibilities.
I think my dream job would definitely be working as a CIA or FBI agent or even as secret service. I'd get to travel the world, work as a detective, sleuth around some nice and not so nice places and play a role in protecting the freedoms I personally take for granted right now. It'd give me a place to effectively put my patrioticness to work. I was studying to get the job for awhile, but money and family issues arose and I was forced to drop out of the classes.
So how about you guys? Got any big dreams, hopeful aspirations? Or do you have a job currently? Or are you currently in a college, university or trade skill apprenticeship program to get a job soon?
