Top Ten Dream Jobs

The Top Ten

1 Music Star

Doing something creative
And do something what we really love
Living the life more than just born
trying to survive and die
Make some legacy
Dream big
And use this opportunity to give something to the world - robertlead37

Sex, drugs and rock 'n' roll, baby! Even Jon Bon Jovi said that this is the best job apart from being Santa Claus.

You get everything... Fame, recognition, money, women, fast cars, drugs, booze... What else does one need?!

I’d love to do this because you get to play music and turn even the downs in life into a fun song that could be enjoyed by millions. Unfortunately though, my songwriting is very limited and I sound like a cat being strangled when I sing so it would be impossible for me to make a living from this or even make it into the music industry so it would have to be a hobby for me. - 3DG20

2 Actor/Actress

Well, personally, I would like this because you can become someone you aren't. Like Robert Englund. Normally a nice guy (based on some interviews I've seen). But he was in Nightmare On Elm Street as a killer. And you get paid lots. For basically saying some lines and playing a believable role as a character.

Would love that but only if I get a contract but wouldn't wane be famous but my life is ruined anyways so why not. I did a lot theater in school and made a a lot pales but got laughed about it

My name is Christina Hampton-Ricci and I'm auditioning for the roles of belle from Disney's Beauty and the Beast The Movie Musical and I am Nine Years Old. Just Kidding.

This is my plan B - toptendudes

3 Pro Athlete

This would mean suddenly I have the health and ability to really do what we secretly dream of. Running without getting tired in the fresh air and sunshine. Smacking a ball or diving into a pool just feeling the success and freedom. Having the body and winning attitude of a pro-athlete. There are so many sports to choose from Olympic swimming, rock climbing, running, softball, martial arts etc. - wishreality88

Huge Salary, Fun as hell Job, Lots of Girls throwing themselves at you... What guy wouldn't want a Job like that? - VADERtheIMPALER

This should be the best job #1. playing hockey is awesome this is good because you can have a job that isn't a job because thats how much you like it. GO SPORTS

Nope. Not me. I’m too fat, haha - KingSlayer93316

4 Jet Pilot

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

Greatest job in the world. What's better than flying faster than the speed of sound all around the world?! Plus pulling Gs... No greater feeling.

You don't have to work many hours, get a high-pay, and get to travel the world. - HarCher

Kinda boring - toptendudes

5 Video Game Tester

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

I've always wanted to be a video game tester since a kid, and still Want to be one.I think it would be an awesome job have.

What about do something you love to do and be payed to do that? I willing to pay (and already payed) for this.

You get payed to play video games. That is awesome - KingSlayer93316

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.

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

This would be cool just invent some good - toptendudes

This job is great, my dream is an airline CEO, as I already am interested in planes and like airline manager games, it will be fun ordering planes! "Hey! You, the pilot, today you will fly Flight QC845 from Montreal to London, and let me ride in 1st class, thanks! " Pilot: "yes sir" oh the power! Not to mention you get to fly in your airline's planes at ANY TIME! You get to paint the planes the way you want! Charming

9 Author

I love writing! Everyone always says I should be an author when I get older, and I totally agree. I actually recently just won a writing contest for a poem I wrote and for a short story. I would either want to be this or an artist, which I also just won a contest for a drawing of the rainforest.

I'm 11 and I have a book written and made into a real book it's like 167 pages. I'm hoping to become an author the most inspiring author to me is Erin Hunter I love her books!

That's really awesome, especially for somebody your age! Good luck with your future career!

My number one dream job! My dad says it's unrealistic, but he wants me to fly a plane -_- Pretty damn sure I ain't flying a plane.. I also recently won a contest and advanced. I have no idea where I stand right now, because I haven't heard from anyone about it.

This is my plan C - toptendudes

10 Porn Star

That would be an awesome job to have because you get to touch touch and feel something - bones

Unlike the photographer you get to feel and touch something - manya93

It's not like it seems. Lots of people around, cameras and lights up in your face and other places, stop and start ever 10 to 20 seconds, physically exhausting, take forever to film 1 scene.

I would get to bang a chick everyday awesome - toptendudes

16 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 would be pretty cool I guess - toptendudes
