There is a time in all our lives when we look at what are job is and wish we were doing something else. At least that is how I have been feeling lately. When I was young I always wanted to be a marine biologist. It sounded so cool. Until I got older and realized you needed maths and sciences. I am not a math and sciences girl. So that meant, time for a change. Next I thought I would go into journalism. Travel the world, report on all the news worthy items and make a name for myself as a great journalist. Then I realized that type of career takes a long time (and to be honest, I think my parents were worried cause how would I ever be able to pay off my student loans). So, I chose to study something I enjoyed…history. However, unless you are going to get your doctorate, there really is no future in history. At this time, I just took a job because frankly bills needed to be paid. I started in administration but quickly realized that I needed to get out. Eventually I found myself as a financial coordinator managing budgets in the millions. From History to Finance…life is crazy sometimes.Yet the other day, I was having one of my ‘thinking’ moments and I thought about all the jobs that I wished I had.
So, here are the Best 3…Jobs I Wish I Had:
3. Sports Agent
I know it seems funny to have doctor there but for me this was never a possibility – science and math. Plus I have developed a huge respect for doctors who don’t just become doctors for the money but who are actually provided a service to people and countries that don’t have the type of health care systems/care that we have in the Western world. Organizations like Doctors Without Borders are good examples of doctors using their skills to help those that are really in need. If I was a doctor, I would be the type who would travel around to countries and offer whatever help I could. I could really be doing good in the world. That is the main reason why I have made it my first pick.
Since I like history, being an archaeologist is just a given. Plus Indiana Jones made it look so fun. I know in reality it isn’t quite the same as in the movies but it would be great to spend your life devoted to finding things from the past. To uncover items or people who give you an insight into how life worked. Imagine unearthing the Terra Cotta Warriors or discovering another egyptian tomb. Those are amazing discoveries but so are the small discoveries like pottery or utensils. They all tell a story. Such a great job!
As for my final pick, a would want to be a sports agent. It just sounds exciting to negotiate and sign sports superstars – plus I hear the money is not bad at all! Plus I would love to get to all the games to support your player…that would be awesome.
