Careers: What Do Kids Want to Be When They Grow Up?
We all like to dream big – especially when we’re children. No doubt you’ve been told to follow your dreams, but as you’re sitting here reading your job post, have all your dreams been fullfilled? Are you happy with your job?
This interesting infographic from howdoibecomea.net illustrates the top jobs we all dreamed to be as a kid, and shows what it takes to get them.
Isn’t it interesting how the same jobs have been on these lists for decades:
- Musicians / Singers
- Police Officer / Detectives
- Pilot / Airline Pilot
- Spy / CIA
- Professional Model
These are the careers the media covers most. What we really need are people who aspire to become small business owners, skilled craftsmen, farmers and ranchers. Maybe some parents or children or even adults will see this and consider these very important careers that do not require college degrees.
They could seek out the very best experts in their fields and become interns – unpaid at first and then paid. Why start out in debt when you could be making a living while getting the skills to run your own business?
