    Default How many of you guys are actually going after a career bc its your dream?

    Just curious to know how many people are even happy about what theyll do for a living for the rest of their lives.

    Im content with what I do for a living, but I did wish I had done what I sort of dreamed about.

    My dream job, once I (partially) realized it, was not what I had imagined.

    ---

    My dream job is a fairy tale, and fairy tales don't pay the bills. I will not do one thing for the rest of my life (how boring), but rather do many things, some of which I will enjoy, some of which I will hate.

    I went after my dream, and while I don't have the exact job I wanted, I do the same kind of work. I'm happy with it, but I'm not sure I'll stick with it forever...it's a hard road if you don't get exactly what you want.

    I'm pursuing my current career because I think of it as the best way to realize my dreams.
    I feel I'm on the right track, orthodox methods won't take you anywhere. Still in uni though.

    Urrgh, I hate work. My dream job is a couch potato, with many servants serving me. Sadly, doesn't happen.

    I have to figure out what my dream is before I go after it. Meanwhile I'm on the career path I am... just because.

    I hate being asked what my "dream job" would be. For one, I don't dream about jobs. For another, I hear a lot of stories with this theme:

    There's no way of knowing what a certain job will be like. People imagine and dream what it will be like, but you don't really know until you've worked it. And often you can't work it until you've already put in years of schooling and preparation, often voluntary work or internships to get experience, etc.

    If you're considering a certain career, it's a good idea to talk to people who are working it about common misconceptions about it, unexpected aspects, and what a typical day of work is like. That can give you a accurate idea. Still though, you can't know how you'll feel working it, day after day, until you're doing it.

    I really don't know what kind of career I should go for anymore.

    Probably would have been an curious psychologist but want to be in the alternative health profession some day. instead I'm doing work that is driving me a bit fruity just without the fruit. in that respect i am getting there, the frame of reference to what i want to do has become clearer in recent times.
