Hill Sheep Farmer.

You may laugh, but if the pay wasn't laughable, this is what I'd do - what can be better than strolling over hectares of your own land in the beautiful countryside looking after your livestock?
What a lovely mental image. Living off the land. Thank you.

Today we had 'careers guidance' in school in the form of 'The Real Game'. Of course the jobs were allocated randomly so I was a landscape gardener. I got £560 a month and worked 40 hours a week. That was around £3.30 which I'm sure is under the minimum wage.
You don't want to be introduced to the real 'game' believe me darling. LOL!

I turned Google down. Yeah it definitely looks like a really fun environment, though you are worked hard - usually no time out for lunch for example, you spend 5 mins grabbing a sandwich.
You applied for a job at google jools? do tell us about it!!

Journalism. I couldn't imagine a better job!
It does have its downsides you know. "Journohackery" is a nasty world, with people in it for themselves. You can get banned from places if you write a negative piece on them. Fans send you hatemail if you **** off their band or favourite actor. The novelty of your name in print wears off very quickly. The pay is awful unless you hit the big time, etc.

May I ask how long the days are on the trading floor is, what IB you're at and what your job entails?
Hours vary - some are here at 6am and work until midnight, taking 10min food breaks, others have almost a 9-5, it varies very much depending on what division you're in. I'm doing Foreign Exchange where the hours aren't bad at all. Hopefully off to Amsterdam in a bit

No, banker doesn't keep the money he accepts!
Like waste disposal is paid to accept rubbish, I will be paid to accept money. I will be earning twice as much as normal and not do any work at all.

That would be the perfect job.

Speaking realistically, physicist.

Yes, I have noticed a distinct lack in people wanting to become RM Officers. Guess because it's so damn hard!! Hows your training?
