@Jacqui90:  I’m not really sure thats a career that will exist in about 5 years (or now?) Most people can do it online!

I wish there was an easy answer. Creative, fun jobs are hard to come by! I’ve settled into something where I can make my own schedule and pay the bills but can still do what I love (without pay…oh, the arts) as well.

Working in a brewery sounds awesome to me…

If you like travel, you could look in to private companies that arrange student trips, spring break vacations, organized tours, etc. I have a friend who did that for about a year, and she was home maybe 60% of the time, but got to go on awesome trips the rest of the time. Her role was basically administrative there, so she would go on these incredible trips to the Dominican and Peru and other random places just to make sure everything with the company/patrons was in line. Plus, because she was home a fair amount, her hubby just kept his job and held down the fort while she was away.

With your experience you could probably land an Administrative role at a university. Look at universities and community colleges near you. The benefits are great, and usually include free tuition. You can start earning a degree in something you might find a passion for. If possible, look for a state school – they provide the best benefits.

Have you thought about starting your own business?  Start doing some soul searching to figure out things you love doing, and maybe turn one of them into a job for yourself!  You’ll be more successful doing something you love rather than something that just pays the bills.  =o)  Good luck!

I work in a semi unconventional industry (the outdoor gear industry), and… it’s awesome. It’s one of those industries where amazing company perks exist and I travel quite a bit with my job (international travel too). I have a couple of family members who work for breweries, and they love it. It is a pretty fantastic feeling to love what you do!
