I don’t think many of us are working our dream jobs… or ever our preferred jobs.
I am a Documentation Clerk. My preferred job would be Early Childhood / Elementary Education Teacher. My dream job is to do character voice work – more specifically: voice a Disney Princess.
What are your actual vs preferred vs dream jobs?

Actual: product analyst
Preferred: I actually love my job and the company I work for… so I would prefer to be in the same department/career, just a little higher up in the ladder with a higher salary.
Dream: nothing. I don’t want to do anything!!!!!!!! I just want to hang out with my sweetie, my rabbit, have enough time to get a dog, and live a life of decadence and luxury ~_~

My actual job is a project manager in a boutique consulting firm and it definitley was my dream starter career job! I found the firm when I first started grad school and said I wanted to work there when I graduated – so happy it all worked out! My preferred job would be a head consultant but I’ll get there over time! I guess my dream job outside of my field would be a house flipper!
