    Well for me, since I'm still in school I'd like to/will be an acritect. My dream career is to be an pilot for Emirate flying the A380, after logging countless hours in FSX perfecting it. :rolleyes:

    So I'm asking you, what's YOUR dream profession?

    If I could get a better position in Radio - and be a bit better at it - I'd be happy. To have a nice morning talk show in a mid-sized city would be bliss. We're talking Frazer Crane here.

    Or - what say one of those internet jobs where you cruise Miracle Mile in your Rolls while your website churns out six figures a month.

    Not sure if it counts as a career - but I would love to be an author. Writing books, poems, maybe even some music. Awesome. :D

    My *dream* career would be a photographer, but seeing as the career opportunities are thin, I'm hoping to get my Engineering degree and get a job with a car manufacturer and try to make a hydrogen/electric supercar, much like the Tesla Roadster, only more reliable and quicker to charge.

    If I could get better at it, and actually remember codes, I'd love to be a programmer, or get into web-page design.

    I used to think that was what I wanted to do, then I found out what it took to make it to the manager level, not any more.

    I would say professional golfer as well. Used to carry a 4 handicap when I played everyday, but eventually college and work got in the way of that.

    I think my dream job would be a university professor. I always liked teaching, but never liked the salary. I only lasted about 1 1/2 years.

    Let me tell you that being a university professor is not all it's cracked up to be :eek:. I remember this question going around when I was a senior in high school. I think the no. 1 response from all my friends was either Playboy photographer or porn star.

    Here in NJ Elementary and High School teachers make a lot more than University Professors and the benefits don't even compare.

    wildlife photographer.

    absolutely love the process of finding a spot, looking for something, snapping pics and then the post production that I do for my amateur stuff. to do it on a pro level and take famous snaps that might last generations or even snaps that mean something to alot of ppl, would be amazing.

    In many instances, university professors aren't putting in a 40-hour week for the university - they teach two or three classes a week, keep some office hours, and spend the rest of their time getting published or doing research (which pays above and beyond their university salary).

    My dream career would be one where I could be around an airport/commercial aviation. I've always loved airliners and traveling. Unfortunately at 26 and no university degree, seems like a far away dream :(
