Whether you wanted to become an astronaut, a teacher, or an ice cream man when you were younger, according to a new survey it’s unlikely that you’re currently doing your dream job.
We now know that only 30% of us are in our ‘dream job’. However impractical your dream job was at school that still makes for fairly depressing reading. The poll also shows what our dream jobs are by country. For example, in the United States and Canada the top choice amongst school-children is surprisingly being a teacher. Here in the UK, ambitions are slightly more far-fetched, with being a pilot topping the list.
On a more fantastical note, the number five dream job on the list for men is ‘astronaut’, with ‘singer’ claiming the same spot on the women’s list.
“Even without thinking of our ‘dream job’, most people end up having a fairly varied career,” suggests David Cannon, Managing Director of Maris Interiors. “It’s hard to know what the world of work holds for you until you get out there are become part of it. I can’t pretend that at school I thought I’d be working in the field of workplace design… but I’m very pleased that’s how it’s turned out!”
