Wink What's Your Dream Job..? - July 11th 2012, 05:04 PM

Just wondering what everyone elses dream job/career is at the mo.

Mine is to be a biker paramedic one day...im just wasn't good in GCSE'S. I learn alot about medical things by books, Tv (emergency bikers etc.) and by reaserch. i have no idea how to become a paramedic so atm i'm going with the next best thing. I work at my local horse riding school, its great but extremely tiring..maybe i might end up as a instructor.

Hi Sammy,

Not sure where you're from but if it's the UK this NHS page outlines everything you need to become a paramedic: http://www.nhscareers.nhs.uk/details...lt.aspx?id=905

I hope it works out for you, being a paramedic is an extremely noble career. I'd love to do something similar but I really don't think I could handle the situations, I'm a bit too squeamish.

My absolute dream job would be sound design and audio post production work with a company like Pixar or Dreamworks, but they tend to out source their audio work so it's kind of a job that doesn't really exist! Ha

PS: Sammy, if you're from the USA, I can also get you a guide for being a paramedic here as well. I'd have to look around a bit, but I believe I know a good pre-university source that outlines this stuff out.

My dream job is a bit complicated. If I could do my absolute dream, I would probably go into something such as sexual health counseling (being more particular, counseling those diagnosed with STIs (particularly HIV/AIDs), victims of assault, LGBT folk dealing with bullying and such, or those seeking care at a clinic), possible Sex Therapy or Relationship Therapy (helping couples deal with issues regarding sexuality), or sexual health education (completely different than the other two, but just being a health educator for sexuality, in a high school or college setting.) So...pretty complicated, and considering I'm in college I probably need to settle down on a particular idea.

I'm in grad school for my masters in Clinical mental health counseling. I would love to do private practice with adolescents/young adults (think 13-25 age range) or maybe a college or other private counseling center. No agency though, I want to be able to go more in-depth with clients.

Marriage and family therapist, working with teens/young adults/couples. I don't know if I would want to do that in a private practice setting, or with an agency of some kind, but I definitely know which populations I would like to work with. =)

I also want to go into psychology and work with either couples facing issues or adolescents. I'd like to incorporate some music and art therapy into it (if working with adolescents) so that it won't be the standard just sitting and talking all the time because I know I'm not the only one who can't really stand that and also because I'm a really artsy person and art is a great way to let out emotions and to express yourself. So I would like to do it in a private practice, however I'm not disregarding the idea of working with an agency.

And here you are living, despite it all.

I have two dream jobs, totally on different ends of the spectrum:
To be a really good doctor who works in the ER (why would such a high-stress environment appeal to me? I have no clue).
Or a CEO or something in a successful business, but it'd be my goal to give back through organizations (LGBT-related, Habitat for Humanity, animal shelters, etc).

My dream job would be to be a Police Officer (which is a very realistic goal).

If anyone ever has any questions about any Public Service jobs (Firefighter, Paramedic EMT, Police Officer) in the US, I'm usually pretty good and have alot of information on how to go about applying/getting the credentials to fulfull that position.

Best wishes,

I hope you know that you deserve it all. The best, the most honest, the most beautiful purest love in the world. Not only to be loved by others, but to be loved by yourself. To look in the mirror and think "Yes, I'm exactly who I want to be". To speak up and be proud of yourself. To be brave and open. You deserve the nicest and most caring people to walk into your life. You deserve it all, you know. The whole world...

A writer, journalist and maybe some books.
On another level, I want to work with youth, especially in youth conferences, since the people I know always seem so happy and upbeat

That I'm OK, that I'm fine, that it's all just in my mind

I'm very talented and great around new people i meet and i learn things very quick and remember things just by once or twice going over it. I just think it would be great becoming an actress, i just dont know how to go about it :/

Well I change my mind about every week really. :P

But currently, I would love to be a teacher. Not sure whether it would be primary or secondary yet. And on the side, I'd like to volunteer for the Samaritans or ChildLine and do other voluntary things with children and young people.

In a perfect world it would be amazing to be a singer, but in reality, I doubt I could make a living out of it.

So, I aspire to be a nurse; maybe a nurse practitioner or a physician's assistant one day

Pyschologist. Family therapist... I'm thinking something along the lines of that. I'd want to work with adolescents though.

Other than that, I'm thinking i might want to go into something ... heroic. i was thinking firefighting. I think it'd be pretty cool to be one of those people who has the police dogs... who trains them. I'd love that!

I wanna fly. So I do gymnastics instead.

I'll just keep holding on to what i believe and oh I believe in you. Give me the strength for the fight and the heart to believe cause I've got to believe in you. I feel so alive.

Re: What's Your Dream Job..? - July 22nd 2012, 01:16 AM

Dream job: Race car driver. Or competitive gymnast. But both of those are mildly unrealistic.

I did want to join the army and play Saxophone in the NZ Army Band, but it turns out you also need to be fit for service, and capable of spending up to 4 years in a POW camp - and because I have had mental health issues, I was denied entry.

Then I thought about joining the Police. You need 6/20 vision without correction as a minimum - my GOOD eye is only 3/20 without correction. Another sadface.

And the more realistic things I'm working on . . . truck driver . . . or peer support specialist . . . and in the pipeline is a B.A. double major in English and Psychology, followed by a PGDipTchg, and teach high school English whilst doing a Masters/PhD in Psychology, following that, a PGDipClinPsy, and work with adolescents and young adults (think 15 - 25ish) helping them adjust to independent, adult living.

Er . . . yeah. At one stage I wanted to write the scores for films, but I decided not to pursue the BMus. I also wanted to do Art Therapy at one stage, but I dropped out of the BFA . . . my colourful tertiary education.
I've also toyed with the idea of emergency nursing, mental health nursing, and personal training - but there's convictions standing between me and doing those, so they're off the list for now.
