    I work in accounting - at a moderate level of expertise, not the highest up but about halfway; I do much of the daily leg work and playing with numbers (<3), but also get to do the big-picture, flowchart driven theoretical work in relation to internal processes.

    What's your dream job?
    Piloting. It's been my dream for... as long as I can remember seeing the ground from an airplane, which would've been when I was less than three years old. Also, linguist and interpreter/translator.

    What's your worst nightmare?
    Being a manager. *shudder*

    Troubleshooter. Not in the IT kind of way either. But more like the character "The Wolf" played by Harvey Keitel in Pulp Fiction.

    “Pleasure to me is wonder—the unexplored, the unexpected, the thing that is hidden and the changeless thing that lurks behind superficial mutability. To trace the remote in the immediate; the eternal in the ephemeral; the past in the present; the infinite in the finite; these are to me the springs of delight and beauty.” ~ H.P. Lovecraft

    Dream is to get an office position, especially in something like Operations Planning. But that's harder to do than I realized.
    Worst nightmare is messing up (which is so easy to do, in so many places).

    I've been doing some work for the Canadian census for the past month or so, doing "follow-up" with people who haven't completed it. I've actually liked it at times, and hated it at other times. We have moved on to a longer, optional part of it, so it's become more like a salesperson job now, trying to persuade who've already done the mandatory part to do the longer, optional part. I am not well-suited to that. I can handle the odd irritable person, but a string of irritable people I need to "sell" something to really stresses me out. I can't take more than an hour of it. I just gave notice that I'm quitting today.

    Yeah, telemarketing sort of work has to be my worst nightmare.

    I don't regret taking the job, as it's been enjoyable at times and I've had some good experiences with people and even gained some confidence in myself, but I couldn't do something like that as a permanent full-time thing.

    As for my "dream job", I don't dream about jobs.
