Day 4 of 30 Days Blogging Challenge
Over the years, my idea of a dream job has metamorphosed from general to specific. It has constantly continued to evolve with the changing circumstances.
My earliest memory of what I wanted to do with my life was at 9 when I wanted to be a lawyer. Being a lawyer was my dream job and profession for the longest time spanning my childhood through mid teen years.
I still wanted to be a lawyer whilst I was applying into the university but the one course I sorely needed to get in to study law had a different syllabus for the entrance examination and there was no time to study for it. So I opted for another whose requirements I already had – Public Administration.
But then, a career is different from a dream job. Isn’t it?
I’m currently at the stage where I should be applying for jobs. I’m 9 months away from completing my service to my nation. I should be thinking of my future. And I am. But when it comes to landing that dream job, I have no idea what that is.
I do know this. Any job that would:
1. fully utilize my mental and physical resources.
2. constantly challenge me. I hate monotony. I bores the hell out of me.
3. make me proud of myself.
4. leave me time to have a family life.
5. and of course pay very well.
that’s my dream job. Whether I have to work for somebody or for myself.
But what exactly is that dream job. I have no idea. I don’t think it’s important.
I mean who really gets their dream job?
