Everyone has to work to earn a living. Everyone dreams of the ideal job. Some people dream of a very highly paid job. Some dream of a job where they can have fun too. Most people want a balance of money and fun. Other people seek danger and excitement. For some it is the search for a job which will show up their special talents, for example, a singing job for a singer or a writing job for a person with a passion for writing.
1. The President of the United States
No job in the world can match the power, the benefits, the glory and the charisma attached to that of being the President of the most powerful nation in the World. It is like being Julius Caesar in modern times. The names of the houses also evoke a Roman image with the Senate and the House of Representatives. Imagine having Air Force One for your trips around the world and Camp David for your partying. How about the White House for welcoming your friends? Imagine daring to make a cup of tea or coffee in the kitchen of the White House all by yourself as the President. It would make headlines.
2. Movie Director
This job would fulfill all the desires to meet film stars on a one on one basis. The single act of saying ‘Cut’ to a scene being enacted by Robert De Niro would make most people’s day. Imagine the travelling to fancy locales for outdoor shots. It would be nice to have a chair marked Director and a fancy Caravan trailer for taking a nap. Think of telling Angelina Jolie how to kiss the hero. Think of all the fans.
This job is best suited to people seeking to meet out divine justice on Earth. It is a very professional job requiring the selection of a good rope according to the weight of the person to be strung. It is a morbid thought but someone has to do the dirty work of ridding the Hannibal Lecters of the world. The job does not require much work. It is like being on standby forever.
4. Airline Pilot
People say it is a dangerous job. Life has become dangerous anyway. One can be mugged, be the victim of a hit and run just by standing peacefully on the roadside. So why not go and take the risk in a job that pays well, approximately 15000 dollars a month? Pilots get to stay at the best hotels in the world, limousines to and fro from the hotel to the airport. A pilot gets to wear smart uniforms and pretty colleagues to serve coffee. What else does a man need?
5. Bathysphere Operator
If you are the anti social type and hate meeting people and like to spend your time listening to music and staring at the wall, this is the job for you. Bathus is Greek for Deep and sphere is of course a round ball like object which is the shape of this submarine metal ball with glass windows and connected to the surface by a cable for oxygen. So they drop you down and you look at all the fish and record things and operate robot arms to salvage sunken treasure while you listen to your iPod and no one can call you or ask you out for a nerve wracking cup of coffee at a jam packed cafeteria. This is cool man. All alone at the bottom of the sea. So apply quickly.
6. MMORPG Tester
Imagine being a tester and playing all those multi player video games. So sharpen your skills and apply quickly at all the web sites of developers of MMORPG expansions. They need people to play their games so that they can sort out the glitches and they pay money for doing so. Isn’t that cool? So log on fast and send in your applications. Be the first to try new games being developed for world wide sales.
7. Basketball Player
Can you beat this job? You throw balls at the net and if you are good at putting the ball in while you are running, then you have got it made. Imagine the salary of a million dollars. It would be wise to check out your height. Magic Johnson was six feet nine inches so if you are anywhere near that you have a chance to grab this great job.
8. Racing Car Driver
If you see a Ferrari in your street and you want to touch it be careful someone might sue you. The desire to touch beautiful things is innate in men; ask women if you don’t believe me. Remember Michael Schumacher? He could touch Ferrari’s, Bugattis and Lamborghinis. Why because he was one of the world’s best racing car drivers ever. How much did he earn in his entire career? Well you can make an intelligent guess from the fact that once he got eight million dollars just to put a ten by eight centimeter advertisement on the cap he wore after the race for Deutsche Vermogensberatung for three years. So you can imagine how many millions the rest of his body must have made for those little stickers.
9. Manager of a Private Island
Movie stars and billionaires own islands. They need someone there to keep a check on the meat in the freezer and the wines stacked in the cellar. They need someone to keep the taps running and the swimming pool clean. Someone has to give the orders to clean up the lawns and whitewash the fence. That is one of the best jobs you could ever get. How many times do you think Johnny Depp goes to his island or Pamela Anderson or Sting? Maybe a weekend. The rest of the year the island is all yours. You are the prime minister of an island. What more do you need?
10. Mystery Guest at a Casino
Casinos do hire mystery shoppers to play at the tables and have free drinks all the while keeping an eye on the goings on in the Casino. The best deal is the one in which you are on a luxury liner as a secret spy keeping a tab on the behavior of the croupiers and waitresses and chips cashiers. The requirements for the job are that you should look suave, be always well dressed play at the tables without losing your money or your nerves. All these things you have to do while keeping a strict eye on the proceedings inside the casino. Unfortunately you cannot partake of the free drinks because that would hamper your judgment. Whatever you win is yours and at the end of the day you are paid five hundred dollars. Alas they give this job only to people who have hung out in casinos for years and have adopted the nonchalant insouciance of a Hollywood hero. So keep applying and haunting casinos till you get the job.
