Vegas Breaks Down the Odds of Finding Your Dream Job in Montana
Indeed.com defines a "dream job" as,
...a position that combines an activity, skill, or passion with a moneymaking opportunity. They can be exciting and glamorous, like acting or playing music, or they can be prestigious and high-paying like working as a doctor or lawyer.
Obviously, everyone has a different idea of what their personal dream job might be. Perhaps yours is to own a pottery shop or a charming B&B on the Stillwater River. Maybe you'd like to make money with your hobby or be able to pay your bills as an artist or musician. Perhaps your dream job would be the president of your own company. My kids' dream job is to be a YouTube star or "influencer." SMH.
Not all of us can be fishing guides or ski instructors.
Many of us probably settle for a "not quite my dream, but it's alright" job. That's how I feel about mine. It's generally pretty fun, but it's still work. I had a boss when I was a teen who told me that's why work is called "work" not "fun." He was a smartass, but I pass his classic dad saying on to my kids when they're complaining about chores.
