What is your dream job?
 
Apart from the obvious (becoming a world wide famous drummer) of course.

What career if you could choose any, but not for the money, but just because it would be your dream job, what would you want to do..?

I was asked this question by the CEO during a job interview back when I was laid off.

My response was: I'd like to be a Professor of astro-quantum physics at a large research university. I would lecture class in the morning and work towards answering the questions of Reality in the afternoon.

I didn't get the job, but I did get a second interview!

If I can't be a professional Rockstar then I think I'm pretty much going into my ideal career path right now: engineering. You get to build stuff. Which is fun :)

Oh that's easy. I would travel the world, collecting native seeds, to breed cannabis plants.

That sounds like a good plan. If the Playboy photographer gig didn't work out...

Studio drummer, hired by a large studio with other great musicians.
Either that, or foley-sound engineer in a computer game-company.

Doing it.
Love my job.

Music & aviation was always in my family & I wanted to be a Heli-pilot or pro drummer.
It was a tough call.
Decided my first choice was pilot.
My sacrifices paid off & I got it.

I was drumming pro for about 18 months until my flying took off (excuse pun).
Now drum sem-pro.
No regrets.

Follow your dreams.

Practicing during the day, gigging or hanging in the evenings.
Plus travelling around a lot and doing sports.

And here I was thinking, for sure you were gonna say English teacher. :-)

My dream job? At this very moment, I'll take anything that is different to what I currently get paid for.

Okay, fantasy time.

A major league baseball pitcher, for the Atlanta Braves. I'd take them all the way to the world series, win the Cy Young award, and when I retire I'd open my own jazz club.

Either that or a film director like David Lynch.

Theatre Educator. I know a lot about acting but I'm not really good enough to do it professionally. If you can't do, teach!

My favorite job, would be a Merchant banker.

I would be a good Merchant banker.

I would Merchant bank all day long.

I would be the best Merchant Banker there Woz.

I would be renowned for my Merchant banking,

I would be head hunted for my Merchant banking skills.

I would Merchant bank 7 days a week, 24 hours of the day.

When i reached my burn out stage, and could not carry on my Merchant banking, i would write a book on how to be a good Merchant banker, maybe even run a few seminars on how to be a good Merchant Banker.


So yes, my dream job would be a Merchant Banker. LOL, LOL, LOL
Careful, some people know a little rhyming slang...rhyming slang is not only known by the Cockney.

Astrophysicist or something else in the 'astro-field', maybe even working as a professor. Gigging at night in jazz groups would be the cherry on top.

I actually do want to be an English teacher, at a high school maybe. I'm a bit of a grammar/spelling nazi.

Not sure if I commented on this one, but what would be really cool is if the checks just went in to direct deposit. And all I did was wake up, hang out, and go to bed!

This.

But if I had to chose A/R for one of major cymbal companies. At least I'd get to hang out with name drummers under the guise of "work"

Well, sure. But then I'd have to look like I care. I want to avoid that too ;)
