"The April rain, the April rain,
Comes slanting down in fitful showers,
Then from the furrow shoots the grain,
And banks are fledged with nestling flowers;
And in grey shawl and woodland bowers
The cuckoo through the April rain
Calls once again."

Mathilde Blind, April Rain

What is your dream job?

GemmaRowlandsGemmaRowlands ModeratorPosts: 6,708 mod
If you could pick any job to do, what would it be? For me, it is quite similar to the job that I am already doing, but I would do it in a slightly different way. I currently work as a writer and editor but I am freelance. I would like to work for a larger publishing house and work on novels that are waiting to be published. That is very much what I would like to do, but unfortunately there is nowhere like that to work in my local areas at the moment.

What about you? If you could pick any job in the world, what would it be and why?

    My dream I hope if I can a lot of farm to introduce service and grops around the world I hope if I can help all the people around the world and trying to spread the peace and sell fruits and vegetables a few money.
  • GemmaRowlandsGemmaRowlands Moderator Posts: 6,708 mod
    Wow @gomaa it sounds as though you have a very worthwhile dream indeed, and something that is definitely worth thinking about for the future. Farming is key to human survival; we wouldn't be able to live without it, so helping with this in some way would be a great thing indeed.

    For me University Teacher and in parallele writer but it's hobbie i think not really job.. hmmm what do say ?
  • GemmaRowlandsGemmaRowlands Moderator Posts: 6,708 mod
    @xzena if you were a teacher, what would you want to teach? I have always liked the thought of teaching university students because they want to be there and aren't being forced, and I think that their enjoyment of the subject would help a lot.

  • GemmaRowlandsGemmaRowlands Moderator Posts: 6,708 mod
    If I was a teacher @xzena I would want to teach music, and this is something that I have done in the past. I enjoy music, and like to be able to help young people (and adults, I suppose) find the right instrument for them that they can enjoy.

    Teach in Asia and you'll find most students are much keener on learning than they are in the UK @GemmaRowlands . I really admire people who stand it being a teacher in most British schools.
  • GemmaRowlandsGemmaRowlands Moderator Posts: 6,708 mod
    Yes I have noticed that Asian schools tend to have more enthusiastic pupils, whereas those in the UK often aren't really interested in their education at all, and would much rather be doing something else. It is a shame, but I certainly admire teachers in England for the job that they do.

    I am already doing what I wanted in my life. But, now I realised that I should be more specific now. May be I will resume my teaching career and also start working for NGO. Writing is my passion, so I intend to make it more organized.
  • GemmaRowlandsGemmaRowlands Moderator Posts: 6,708 mod
    I am very happy that you are doing what you wanted to in life @Bubbly as that is something that many people never manage to achieve. You should be proud that you are reaching your goals!
  • BubblyBubbly Nightingale Posts: 30,268 ✭✭✭✭✭✭
    @GemmaRowlands this year is really tough for me as I need to decide which professional career, I should focus on more. But, I know that I will definitely opt what is close to my heart. :)
  • GemmaRowlandsGemmaRowlands Moderator Posts: 6,708 mod
    It can be difficult when you're trying to decide which career to go for @Bubbly but I am sure you will be successful in whatever you do, as you have the determination and motivation to work for what you want.
  • BubblyBubbly Nightingale Posts: 30,268 ✭✭✭✭✭✭
    @GemmaRowlands So challenging but achievable goals that I've set for this year. :)

    I think my dream job right now would be to have to go and scout out new holiday destinations but get paid for it!
  • BubblyBubbly Nightingale Posts: 30,268 ✭✭✭✭✭✭
    I had a great conversation with my mentor yesterday. He helped me a lot to rethink about my future plans. I hope that in few weeks I would be able to find out one definite career path for me.
  • GemmaRowlandsGemmaRowlands Moderator Posts: 6,708 mod
    This is great news @Bubbly I am glad that you feel your definite career path is almost decided upon. You must be very excited about it indeed!

    my dream job is a fashion illustrator. I would be able to draw figures, illustrations and I would be like to be in the fashion industry. My job now is so far from this :)
  • GemmaRowlandsGemmaRowlands Moderator Posts: 6,708 mod
    Are you good at drawing now @Eva11 ? You should send some samples to designers and see if there are any jobs available for you at the moment!
  • BubblyBubbly Nightingale Posts: 30,268 ✭✭✭✭✭✭
