Topic:If you could do anything in the world to make a living what would it be?
My dream job isn’t actually too far away from my actual job I suppose. I love working in Marketing, specifically working in Online Marketing, and my dream would be to work for a massive global company.
I want to be part of a team which creates and develops a marketing campaign which is talked about for years. I want one of my taglines to be an answer in a game of Trivial Pursuit. I want to develop a slogan which people use in everyday conversation. I want to design an online video/game/competition which goes viral. I want millions of views and shares. I want to be on everyones facebook feed and I want every blogger to talk about my campaigns.
I like to think I’m not far off. I work with brands which have catchy TV ads. The campaigns I create now are shared hundreds of times online. Ads I designed are displayed in website sidebars, but in my dream all of this is hundreds of times bigger all around the world.
I plan on progressing in my career as much as possible, but realistically I won’t make it quite this big. I want a family soon and I will want to spend more time with them than stressing about work. As much as I love watching films with successful people in great jobs working in New York and imagining that’s me, it won’t be. I won’t move to London, let alone America…and let’s be honest here, there is a lot of other people doing what I do, and I in no way believe I am better than the rest of them.
So if I want to create a campaign as iconic as ‘Holidays are coming…’ (Coca Cola Christmas ad with the lorry!) what’s your Dream Job?
