    If you start working a full-time job at the age of 21 and wrap up your career at 65, you’ll have spent an average of 91,520 hours on the job! That’s a lot of hours toiling away at any career, even if it’s the dream gig you imagined you’d have when you were a kid. Wide-eyed youngsters can have their eyes on serious cash when exploring the job market, but those who’ve been in the work force over a decade know that you need more than a big paycheck at the end of the day. Here’s a look at the happiest occupations in the world, most of which prove, you get what you give when it comes being satisfied with your job.

    I like my current job.

    And given that I must have done nearly thirty very different types of work to keep a roof over my head, and food on my table before I invented this vocation for myself, that's saying something.


    1 dishwasher
    2 stockboy - shoe salesman
    3 house painter
    4 gardener
    5 Toll Taker (for Delaware River Joint toll Brige commision)
    6 Shovel mechanic (for PENNDOT)
    7 Machine engraver (that has to be the occupation I was most unsuited for I ever tried)
    8 Short order cook
    9 Waiter
    10 basic Navy corpsman, (11 nueropsych tech,12 Ortho tech 13 Indpendent field medic)
    14 Bartender
    15 Terrier (the well driller, not the canine)
    16 Personal Care attendent -> 17 HC coordinator for BCIL
    18 Maintainance man
    19 Real estate - manager -> 20 lic. agent -> 21 lic. appriaser
    22 Steelejack's apprentice (Now there's a job I don't miss)
    23 High school History and Literature teacher (the hardest job of all in my 45+ years of working for a living)
    24 Carpet cleaner -> 25 owner of carpet clearning company
    26 Manager of a woman's clothing store (has to be the best job for a satyr other than pimp)
    27 Fine arts dealer
    28 Educational Computer consultant
    29 Publisher CEO ( NFP entrepreneur)

    I probably forrgot a few different kinds of things I've done for pay, but ya'll get the picture, I think.

    quite the resume Editec (btw, i'd vote tarbender a good one for you)

    not to put the kebosh to an ubeat thread but, there's an awful lotta heartache in being and emt or FF

    and construction these days is full of the more disingenous a-holes trying to gain a leg up on each other than i've seen in 25 years

    There are pros and cons to every career but some are sure better than others.

    Why does everyone presume you need to stop working at age 65?

    Everyone has a different occupation they love.

    The fact that 'lawyer' is on that list causes me to doubt it. Lawyers are the most miserable profession on Earth. 98 percent of lawyers hate their jobs.
