    Default How would you feel after a day in these jobs? Part V, managers

    8 hour day.

    Hiring new people, promoting occupational development and well-being in the work

    Deciding on the company's purchasing contracts, inventory and storage

    Directing the technical research development program in a space technology corporation

    Planning, coordinating and controlling the efficiency of building airplane parts

    Overseeing the marketing, production and personel as the head of a building company

    Overseeing a team of construction engineers at the construction site of a large bridge

    Leading the creative development of a fantasy RPG game and managing a team of artists

    Improving border security by detecting smuggling and illegal immigration as the head of a customs office

    I didn't have the time to research this one so well, so excuse me if there are gross errors of fact.





    The whole series:

    Part I, simple jobs
    Part II, skilled jobs
    Part III, associate professionals
    Part IV, experts
    Part V, managers

    Hiring new people, promoting occupational development and well-being in the work
    Perfect!

    Deciding on the company's purchasing contracts, inventory and storage
    Excellent!

    Directing the technical research development program in a space technology corporation
    Yay for space but the directing part...eeem...I think I'll pass.

    Planning, coordinating and controlling the efficiency of building airplane parts
    :rolli: Boring

    Overseeing the marketing, production and personel as the head of a building company
    I think I'd manage that. Not exactly a dream job, though.

    Overseeing a team of construction engineers at the construction site of a large bridge
    Yup. That sounds pretty cool.

    Leading the creative development of a fantasy RPG game and managing a team of artists
    Wonderful!

    Improving border security by detecting smuggling and illegal immigration as the head of a customs office
    Nah.

    Hiring new people, promoting occupational development and well-being in the work
    I'd very much like this in the future. I'd be in harmony and feel happiness, I'd be elated.

    Deciding on the company's purchasing contracts, inventory and storage
    As any important job, I'd be happy to get it, but I wouldn't be particularly excited about this.

    Directing the technical research development program in a space technology corporation
    I'd be overwhelmed by the amount of know-how and brain activity in the job. I'd be working in a job I'm not in control of, the researches would know more. So it would be adventure, I'd be excited, anxious, I'd feel the whole range of feelings. Probably I'd burn out sooner or later.

    Planning, coordinating and controlling the efficiency of building airplane parts
    Process engineering, okay. I'd be okay with it, it's part of what I've learned, but applied to different products. I wouldn't put all my heart to it and it would show. It would tax me.

    Overseeing the marketing, production and personel as the head of a building company
    I'd have skills from totally different areas, I'd be in pain not to screw up. I'd rely a lot on my subordinates to provide information and they would practically lead most of it for a year or two. I'd be afraid of when I'm going to be kicked out, I'd go home feeling insecure.

    Overseeing a team of construction engineers at the construction site of a large bridge
    If it's personel matters, it's ok, but as I'd actually have to learn and use the engineering aspect of it, hmm, I guess I'd like it in the end. Building projects are exciting. But, I've loved this kind of engineering as a child, still like it, but I'd still be insecure and afraid of screwing up with this one.

    Leading the creative development of a fantasy RPG game and managing a team of artists
    I'd be thrilled. Dream job. I would take in the current development of games today, feel in the moods and details and dive in the atmosphere of the game we're creating. I'd be very happy about this, proud, it would be just perfect.

    Improving border security by detecting smuggling and illegal immigration as the head of a customs office
    This would be a more standard setting than the others, I'd feel confident in fulfilling my responsibilities, and of course I would have had to learn a lot to get this far. Considering the time for all that, I'd be eventually disappointed of a boring job, unhappy.

    Tired already? I didn't plan what I'd make with all this info, exactly, apart from vaguely seeing "personal influences" to job preferences.

    From what I've seen (haven't put them into chart or anything), there seems to be a strong I/E thing going on, and almost nothing to do with F/T. What else? (or is it so?)

    Oh no. It's the end. Oh well, it was fun whilst it lasted.

    Hiring new people, promoting occupational development and well-being in the work
    Yes sir.

    Deciding on the company's purchasing contracts, inventory and storage
    Hmmm, i could give it a try.

    Directing the technical research development program in a space technology corporation
    Nope.

    Planning, coordinating and controlling the efficiency of building airplane parts
    Boring.

    Overseeing the marketing, production and personel as the head of a building company
    Yes, i could do this.

    Overseeing a team of construction engineers at the construction site of a large bridge
    Oh yeah. Eye candy.

    Leading the creative development of a fantasy RPG game and managing a team of artists
    Not lead, but manage yeah.

    Give me the gun. I'm already on it.

    No. Bored to tears!!
    Directing the technical research development program in a space technology corporation
    Incompetent, blah.
    Planning, coordinating and controlling the efficiency of building airplane parts
    Bored, sad, incompetent.

    Sure! Decent
    Overseeing a team of construction engineers at the construction site of a large bridge
    No!!
    Unless we want some sad evening news.

    That would be cool as long as I knew how to do it! Would enjoy it very much.

    I'd be frustrated and angry with this job.

    I work as a Manager, have done for years now. It has its ups and downs. Any questions just shout.

    Not an eight hour day though, on average.

    Promoting occupational development and well-being, sure. (not like I think most managers are interested in that ). Not so much on the hiring part.

    Deciding on the company's purchasing contracts, inventory and storage
    Not something I'd enjoy. Too much tedium.

    Directing the technical research development program in a space technology corporation
    Yes! The more technical and less PR-spinmeistering the better.

    Planning, coordinating and controlling the efficiency of building airplane parts
    Hmm... tough to say. It might be interesting and fun, and it might be dedicating my professional life to minutiae. I'd prefer something on a more general scale.

    Overseeing the marketing, production and personel as the head of a building company
    Anything to do with marketing is an automatic no.

    Overseeing a team of construction engineers at the construction site of a large bridge
    I might be able to handle this... but I'd much rather be the design engineer.

    Leading the creative development of a fantasy RPG game and managing a team of artists
    This *sounds* like something that I'd really like. In practice, I'm not so sure. I think that there are a lot of details and people-problems that I'd be way stressed out by dealing with.

    Improving border security by detecting smuggling and illegal immigration as the head of a customs office
    Meh. Not really interested.

    All in all, I'm not terribly interested in "management". There's way too much PR, "appease the accountants", "Sales over all", and people problems. Any of that, much less all of it, would simply suck the life out of me. I'd much rather be "lead engineer", "technical specialist/coordinator", "troubleshooter", "designer", "teacher" or "writer".

    Great thread idea, Santtu

    Hiring new people, promoting occupational development and well-being in the workplace
    I might be okay at this, except dealing with people a lot makes me tired.

    Deciding on the company's purchasing contracts, inventory and storage
    Dull.

    Directing the technical research development program in a space technology corporation

    Dull.

    Planning, coordinating and controlling the efficiency of building airplane parts
    Dull.

    Overseeing the marketing, production and personnel as the head of a building company

    Sounds stressful to have that much responsibility, but I think I'd be okay at it.

    Overseeing a team of construction engineers at the construction site of a large bridge

    I think I'd be awful at this and really bored.

    Leading the creative development of a fantasy RPG game and managing a team of artists

    I'm not into video games or fantasy genre stuff, but being a creative director sounds fun.

    Improving border security by detecting smuggling and illegal immigration as the head of a customs office

    This sounds too close to law enforcement. I don't like borders and how carved up the world is, so in principle this would depress me. I'd be way too compassionate to anyone we caught
