Top Ten Dream Jobs

The Top Ten

1 Music Star

Not me because I suck at singing - Luckys

Really? Composers or instrument players are better than music STARS, think about it. - TopTenTed

Sounds pretty cool, but I want to be a preschool teacher, I could be a music star while I'm still young!

I get the charm of this, its enthralling to be infront of a crowd, that's chanting your name. - Nakul123

2 Actor/Actress

Being and Actor or Actress gives you the opportunity to disconnect from reality and live out your fantasies. You can experience even the most wild adventures and be anything you dream off while entertaining and inspiring others and giving life to the character you play. Its an opportunity to be part of something bigger than yourself, to tell a story that will speak to the hearts of millions.

This is the best one

My dream job

Best job on the planet

3 Pro Athlete

This is my dream: to go to the Olympics for track and field! And stop being dramatic about wanting to die rather then becoming a pro athlete @SeeYallOnTheOtherSide

If your good it can be awesome but if you're not well it's not great

Not for me I would rather die to be honest - SeeYallOnTheOtherSide


4 Jet Pilot

Very dangerous though!

A civilian airline pilot is hands down one of the greatest jobs ever founded... Nothing beats leaving your house at twelve in the afternoon and being in a different country just a few hours later... It has it's downsides. There are mornings where you have early flights and so have to get up at uncomfortable times and sometimes flight hours are long but it is still a thrill and a gift to do

Airline Pilot is the number one dream job in the world. It is the most prestigious, respected and admirable profession. The education and training to become a qualified Pilot is unrivaled. - Aeromagic

Best profession in the world. Prestigious, very highly respected and most admirable. Number 1 dream job of all time.

5 Author

I'm writing a book right now - Mocchiko

I could be an author. - BlackAngel_ZombieBoy

I've always wanted to be a writer. A fiction writer that is. Ever since I was in the third grade, I've secretly always wanted to be a writer but, my parents told me off a long time ago.. I made it seem like I've grown out of this, but it's always been deep in my heart to do this. The "good" jobs my parents would like me to do would be a doctor, engineer, computer scientist, etc. The problem is, everything has to do with science. I hate science.. (Please don't kill me...) Science just never interested me. Why does every so called good job have something to do with science? Right now, I have no clue where my life is headed...

I wrote a book about the purge and the other 9/11 attacks - XxSEVEREDHUMANITYxX

6 CEO of Whatever You Created

CEO is cooler but SHAREHOLDER is the real thing... your idea can be unique, the problem is: people will do everything for profit and POWER turning the good idea into something weird or cruel

Definitely me

My dream job ever in hiring ceo at any concern.because iam studied administrative am I status work provider and looking that hierarchy.but now not get in atlest one job.because my places is that I know as insight myself have in many talent and conceptual skill and perfect employee skills but no one concern giving me mandatory.that it first un experienced opportunity because now I am beginners of communication skills. But I hope one day get in perfect fluent communication skill stand time must share us one matter.many peoples thoughts of communication is perception.iam say it not perception because "what is the communication...communication is understand the matter is receiver to sender proper every child beginning studying life in the class room teacher first ask to him or her.they are reply "mam I will became the doctor and engineer and district sad.but who had the different attitude has gone and achieve the carrier and long term ...more

The apsolute best realistic job To my mind.

7 Inventor

This job would be terrible. You would have to go through so much failure before you got to success. I guess some people do it and love it. I must not have a scientist in me.

invent, produce and dominate - ronluna

I would love to be paid to reinvent the World of Jobs!

You could make millions of dollars as an inventor if your invention is good enough - Ajkloth

I wanna be this. - XxSEVEREDHUMANITYxX

More like it - SeeYallOnTheOtherSide

Wow Play Games all day and Get paid for It, where do I Sign Up anyway, Please tell me where, Nintendo or XBox or Playstaion, Please tell me.

It is a great job, no doubt, but It's not all about having fun. You are paid to find bugs, test every aspect of the game and create detailed reports. It can be very tiring. - Jukass

It's not so good
you need to complete the game in EVERY possible way founding bugs, completing missions/tasks a lot of times... - Zalgiris

All around good job.

FACT:To be a male porn star in america you have to shoot 2 gay pornos for every one none gay porno to make sure you don't fall in love and end up kidnapping one of the female porn stars.

ANOTHER FACT: you don't have to be gay to shoot for playboy, you don't have to stay in-shape for playboy, AND you get to meet all the models and out of all those women, you're likely to find one that will... Play with you. - HTML_RuleZ_D00D

NOT exactly a dream job!

13 Video Game Reviewer

I wanna be this too also - XxSEVEREDHUMANITYxX

This gets my vote over one that is higher on the list, video game tester, which would get tedious and boring. But reviewing new fresh games all the time, would be great

I would be great at this

Getting paid to express my opinions would be awesome. Video Game Journalism deserves my vote. - DCfnaf

14 Movie Critic

I love watching movies so would love to be paid to review them...

I’m a big time movie fan. Using it as a way of escapism, gives me a little time to disconnect and go on a, much needed, mental vacation. This would be a great career.

15 Movie Director

My movies would make everyone's eyes bleed. - XxembermasterxX

So fun

İm a film direktör and very cool


16 Chocolate Tester

Because I love chocolate and it is a great job and I want to do it when I am older but that is in a long time because I am 8 right now but I want to start the job when I am 30 yeas old

I am Willy Wonka

AWESOME-ST JOB EVER! The only downside is that I'd probably gain a lot of weight!

Quick way to get fat

17 Race Car Driver

I have had a passion for cars since I was 6 years old. this is probably every car enthusiasts dream job because you get to do what you enjoy the most and also get to drive fast without the pigs (cops) chasing you

A dream job can vary depending on who you're asking, so the winner of this list will just win by the background of the majority. For me however, it was, is, and always is being a race car driver. Bigger adrenaline rush than anything else, the competition of winning, and the art behind handling the beast with a motor and four wheels. You're doing what racing dreamers do, go out and race with no restrictions to noise, speed, and cops. For a car guy, this is the one. Personally, Formula-1 would be the one for me, but WRC or WTAC would be a close second.

For the speed and sense of freedom one would have dashing down the road. - wishreality88

This is a great job for me to be because I have always wanted to be a race car driver in my life

20 Paleontologist

I love dinosaurs, so I want to learn more about them, and possibly discover a new species. - thelegendaries101

21 Animation Voice Actor

Voice acting is a fun thing, especially as a hobby. However, when you start doing voice overs professionally, that's where things get serious. You have to memorise lines in order to get the best out of your acting ability and there are tight deadlines everywhere.

Okay, this is very cool... - Doyaknowdawar

I would love to do this job!

you will do lots of crazy voices and they will not notice even if they saw you in youtube that is you - ronluna

25 Astronaut

Lots of little kids want to astronauts when they grow up - Murphypaw

Other jobs make you famous, but only for a time. This is "have kids learn about you in school 100 years from now famous" (quote from Space Case). Also, the adventure! So cool!

Sounds cool - KingSlayer93316

Don't even need words to justify why this should be number 1. Astronaut is THE dream job.

26 President of the United States

I guess this is put here because of Donald Trump? - Doyaknowdawar

32 Engineer

My first dream career was related with the medical field because I grew up hanging out everyday at an hospital. However, I took two STEM classes to see if it was worth it and it was. - Kwaysar

Electrical Engineering is the best career in Engineering! God bless this profession!

I would like to be a space engineer because I love Legos and I love spaceships and I would combine those too!

I believe that it is the best proffesion because If you intelligent and creative you can design something unbelivable. - Alex_Sandra

33 Stay At Home Parent

Ugh being a stay at home parent is nothing to be proud of it just shows you are too lazy to get a job. - XxembermasterxX

Not a job. When people get offended at hearing that this isn't a job, they're forgetting that just because something is difficult, doesn't mean it's a job. You have to have a paid position of regular employment

When did sitting at home all day become a job? - 3DG20

Only people that don't have kids could vote anything besides stay-at-home-parent as the best job in the world!

Sitting at home all day isn't a job. (Well, at least it wasn't until YouTube was created...) - 3DG20

34 Tour Guide

I would say WELCOME TO ALCATRAZ to people all day and like it

35 Meteorologist

Something like a Marine Biologist or a Meteorologist is definitely an option for me. - oceanbreezetheawesomewarrior

I want to be a meteorologist if you ever hear of me my name is Mason Carter I’ve been wanting to be one since I was 7 I would love to chase storms and tell the weather.

My dream job. I want be a meteorologist that goes out and chases the storms

My dream job. I would want to chase tornadoes and have this job.

I can't even coook - potatogurl

I can’t even microwave leftover food! - KingSlayer93316

37 Entertainer

That could be a variety of different things. A singer, musician, performer, animator, actor/actress, comedian, talk show host etc. - 3DG20

I would be a comedian. I’m already one among my family!

38 Astronomer

We wouldn't be here if the universe didn't exist, and I work in a closely related field ❤️

39 YouTuber

I'm not trying to discourage anyone, but you can try, though there's a big chance you won't blow up. - Luckys

Just post entertaining videos and make millions of dollars.

I imagine being a great YouTuber that is rich and no one knows my identity. And I don't have to go to school so I can make money by doing fun things with Legos and gaming. But you have to be a good YouTuber to have good money.

My dream is to become a youtuber as good as Prestonplayz or even better!

40 Sports Broadcaster

You get paid to sit on your ass for a few hours and talk about what your watching and your opinion about it. AWESOME!

wanted to be one since I was a kid - bigmike52

41 Rapper

I want to be a rapper for the rest of my life

I want to be a rapper all day long

I want to be a rapper

For every million I make, another relative sues
Family fighting and fussing
Over who wants to invite me to supper
All of a sudden, I got ninety-some cousins
A half-brother and sister who never seen me
Or even bothered to call me until they saw me on T.V.
Now everybody's so happy and proud
I'm finally allowed to step foot in my girlfriend's house (Hey!)
And then to top it off I walked to the news stand
To buy this cheap-ass little magazine with a food stamp
Skipped to the last page, flipped right fast
And what do I see? A picture of my big white ass
Okay, let me give you some help
Um, here, "XXL! XXL! "
Now your magazine shouldn't have so much trouble to sell
Ahh, it, I'll even buy a couple myself
You see, I'm just Marshall Mathers
I'm just a regular guy
I don't know why all the fuss about me
Nobody ever cared before
All they did was doubt me
Now everybody wanna run their mouth
And try to take shots at me

42 HIt Man

I would never be able to kill someone unless it was for self-defense. I couldn't hurt a fly, let alone be a hit man - oceanbreezetheawesomewarrior

The best job ever!

That would be cool - KingSlayer93316

You get to go around and kill people! For Money! And Hit Man never feel bad about it, so your could go around and take care of all the people you hate! You could be like someone from the Bourne Movies or Kill Bill.

I’m already one among my family. I make my family laugh all the time. Unfortunately my mom sometimes find my humor a bit too offensive...
