Your realistic dream job?

The title might sound like an oxymoron, but what would be your dream job that you could actually see yourself achieving?

Example of a dream job that I will probably not get: Professional Musician, Astronaught.

Example of a realistic dream job: After getting my B.S. BME/NE (bachelor of science in biomedical engineering with a minor in nuclear engineering), I would attend med school and become a radiation oncologist (1st year salary $240k, 5 years - $385k, max - 800k).

You?

I'd say a CEO of a insurance company. My dad had a great time selling insurance, so I don't see why I wouldn't.

Other than that, anything that has to do with the stock market would be a good job.

More like stressful. Average turnover for a floor trader is one year.

I'm going for my BS in CS at Georgia Tech. Work as a coder for a few years, go back for an MBA in something. CEO of some small to mid cap corporation would be pretty nice.

Getting a BS in Management and an Associate's Degree in Computer Technolgy(Computer Science). Hopefully then I get accepted into the Wharton School of Business where I want to get my MBA. After that I would like to work for a tech related company such as: Microsoft, Intel, AMD, etc. where I would like to land a job where I would hopefully work my way up to upper management.

Being able to spell Astronaut would probably be a step in the right direction.

My dream job would something in the corporate side of the Swiss watch industry--preferably Marketing.

give it a few years and there won't be any reason for a floor for the NYSE. it will all be on computers.
My dream job is being a hedge fund manager, and doing market and financial analysis/commentary on tv
The salary for this does not have a limit.

something middle-upper management in an investment firm. Seriously, being middle management is ****ing easy when there are a ton of people above or below you. And it's enough money to do what I want when I'm NOT at work, which is most important to me.

I don't have the drive or motivation to do anything really cool work-related, but I can get my MBA in Finance and go from there so at least I can live the kind of life I want to outside of work.

Well, I am in mechanical engineering, so I either want to get into weapons or aeronautical from there. If I don't do that, I want to get into the business side of it as well.

Probably orthopædic surgeon. I'm thinking surgical medicine and rebuilding a knee would be a lot more appealing to me than other stuff.
