OK, honestly I do have a pretty kick-a job, and I have no room to complain. I graduated from college with a degree in Commercial Recreation and Marketing. I went on to finish my Masters in General Admin. Right after graduation I worked for Special Olympics Michigan for 2 years. I LOVED that job and felt SO good about what I was doing. However, there were some major burnout issues. I felt as if I could work forever, and there was still work to be done. AND, lets be realistic, the money in non-profits is not very good. If money wasn't an issue, I may have stayed there longer.
NOW I work in Alumni Relations as my alma mater as an event planner. This is a GREAT job. I LOVE planning events...and I have a very flexible schedule.
SO..I will say that it is a Dream Job, however I would make a few changes.
1.) EVENT PLANNER (with a few changes from my current position)...I would not have to deal with budget, I would have an unlimited amount of money to spend, I would have an assistant, I wouldn't have to fret about guest lists and making sure that I had enough people at my events!
2.) STAY AT HOME MOM...I do get very envious of all mama's that get to stay home with their pumpkins and play all day. BUT, I don't really know if I could do it. And...I guess it wouldn't be playing all day. OK, if I was a SAHM in a perfect world, I would also have a housekeeper, chef, shopper, etc.
