Glamorous Job Career Information.. is there enough?

When you were at school did it seem that everyone wanted you to be a secretary or an accountant or go to Uni and study something normal... What about you your parents? Did you get much encouragement.... Were you told to do something sensible with your life rather than dreaming about doing something really different...

What did you want to be? A TV Presenter? A Fashion Designer? An Actor? A Radio Presenter? A Journalist? A Dancer? A Flight Attendant? A Make up Artist?

Were you told that there was just far too much competition and you were wasting your time?

Do you think that is true?

Would you like to see more information on "out of the ordinary" jobs and more encouragement to pursue them.

What is a glamorous job?

If you speak to someone in a Glamour Job they will probably tell you it isn’t glamorous at all, but maybe in some cases that might just be because they’ve been doing it too long and should perhaps move over and let someone else have a chance!

What we see as a Glamour Job is a job that has some sparkle about it, that makes you want to get up in the morning and go there rather than laying in bed and also a job that provokes enviable interest from other people when discussing it in social circles... Anyone who has ever sat next to an Accountant or Taxation Clerk at dinner will know what we mean there!!

The main thing to remember is that even Glamour Jobs have their down sides and it is important you are able to accept that. Glamorous or not, you will still be expected to work hard and earn your pay but if you have the added bonus of of doing something exciting and hopefully that you love.

Examples of Glamour Jobs are Fashion, TV, Radio, Travel, Airlines, Hospitality (in the right places), Sport and Fitness, Beauty, PR and even working as an Accountant... so long as it is on the Barrier Reef or on a Caribbean Island!!

Does anyone have any Glamour Job stories to share? Best jobs? Worse Jobs? Most Bizarre Jobs???

What was the worse dinner conversation job you've had to sit through??
