Among the 10 dream jobs: concert promoter and brew master

How interesting and relieved to read that two of the things Robert and I do are among the 10 dream jobs identified in an online article.

I promote concerts.

Robert brews beer.

The career builder article describes each of the ten dream jobs and lists the benefits (perks).

I daresay none of the other 8 jobs appeal to me, except for Vacation Tour Director.

What is a dream job? One you would pay to have?

Brewing beer is Robert’s hobby. Promoting concert is one aspect of audience development and concert production. It is neither a hobby nor a job. I would have included the following in my dream job list:

  • bestselling novelist
  • niche film composer
  • professor of cultural economics
  • music magazine editor
  • concert reviewer
  • musician with completely sold-out concerts years ahead
  • well-paid fundraiser
  • sponsor
  • search engine optimisation (SEO) advisor
  • impresario

Google “dream jobs” and you’ll arrive at Boston Globe’s “Top 20 dream jobs.” There you’ll see that concert producers and brew masters are also in the list of dream jobs.

The ultimate dream job? A round-the-world trip to give concerts, all expenses paid. [Hint: google “ultimate dream job”]

    Funny, we have very similar dream job list. I particularly love “impresario” but it rarely, if ever, comes up in job searches.
