My dream job

Christoph Brettez, Belgium


I would like to be a pilot in the army. This job requires an aptitude for
science and mathematics because navigation skills are important and
calculations have to be made all the time, both on the ground and in the
air. But maths and science are my favourite school subjects. I also like
adventure and I know that when you are a pilot, you are as free as a bird. I
know that it is dangerous, but if you do not take any risk in life, then when
you die, you havent lived at all.
Sandy McCarthy, USA
I imagine myself working in an office for a few hours a day, that is, I would
like to have a nine-to-five job. I know this sort of job involves doing quite a
lot of paperwork, but I dont mind. The salary wont be high at first, but if I
work hard, I may get a good pay rise. However, the real world isnt as good
as my dreams I must study and work, before my dreams come true.
Greg Smith, Wales
I want to be a bartender, like Tom Cruise in Cocktail, and work on Bikini
Island. There are many sandy beaches, with blue skies and transparent
waters. There are beautiful, suntanned bodies everywhere, and the
relaxing sound of crashing waves and refreshing sea smell is just perfect to
escape the rat race which is our society.
