    If you could have any job in the world...

    Would you be President of the United States? A Fortune 500 CEO? An entrepreneur? General Manager of a baseball team?

    What would it be and why?

    Re: If you could have any job in the world...

    Great question.

    My dream job would involve golf, which is my career now, but it would be on a higher level.

    Obviously, I'd love to be on the PGA Tour, but if I wasn't out there I'd like to be a golf course designer. I think it'd be fascinating to watch a golf course built from scratch.

    Same one I've got now.......teaching high school. I'd just pay myself a whole lot better.

    Chief Justice of the United States Supreme Court

    You get a job for life and a chance to influence the ways the laws in this country are developed. Plus, you live relatively free from the circus and spotlight that surrounds most political jobs and can actually have a life off the bench (Justice Thomas goes out in an RV during the summer, stopping at random campsites and just blending in with people. He's, apparently, rarely recognized.).

    That'd be my dream job.

    PGA tour is an obvious answer for me. Only problem is I am about as far away from that as I can get. Playing for the Reds would be a close second.

    Assuming money isn't an object, I'd be a high school football coach. I've always been a bigger fan of the high school game than any other level.

    I don't want to sell anything, buy anything, or process anything as a career. I don't want to sell anything bought or processed, or buy anything sold or processed, or process anything sold, bought, or processed, or repair anything sold, bought, or processed. You know, as a career, I don't want to do that.

    I actually would love to be an imagineer but don't have the talent.
    Nothing to see here. Please disperse.

    For me, either world-class pianist or guitarist.

    Second choice, SS for your Cincinnati Reds.

    Truly dream jobs because I haven't .001% of the talent necessary to do either of those things.

    Food and travel critic. You know, those guys who stay at the fancy Bahama resort then throw a review in some magazine. Seriously what could be better?
