    So Far I've been a sparky, and CNC operator for an areospace company.. With BSF kicking off here and the school is to be remodeled in two year time, I would really like to stay in IT but I'm back at college on a wed evening retraining to be a sparky. in the mean time I'm working through the server 2008 exams.

    At least then when the changes are made to the school I can be more relaxed about weather I will be in a job or not as I will have backup plans.

    I've always wanted to be a police man.

    You mean a helicopter, then ?

    Photographer for me. Not weddings, though. Packed that in after 4. Never again.

    My wife's a chartered accountant and we've jostled with the idea of setting up business together when the kiddies get older.

    I can't see myself leaving IT willingly, I enjoy the area too much. If I did though my plan is to take my emergency fund and emigrate to Canada, then just see what happens.

    Dream dream job would be Architect. Beyond that Helicopter pilot, climbing centre owner or Tree surgeon. Apart from the real fantasy jobs like Explorer or Travel writer.

    I'd probably try and get into some sort of video editing, maybe do some college courses beforehand, i quite enjoy doing video editing at the moment but it's very very basic stuff i do here for music and drama teachers

    I like the idea of working with apple macs as well :x

    I am happy where I am and with what I do - seriously!

    Everyday, I am going to work with joy and at the end of the day I am returning home with satisfaction of the job well done.
    Of course I have numerous little reasons to complain about my job but anyway I love IT.

    Maybe a slight change will do for me from time to time because usually after a year in one place I am bit bored with the routine and lack of challenges. Working on two or three sites would be good (I guess).

    Reiteration on my previous post.

    I would love to be a Paramedic, but the likelihood of that is slim, as couldn't afford to lose my job with commitments. More schooling + volunteering to get to paramedic stage.

    So my only option would be todo something in IT that I would enjoy, and that would be a Field Service Engineer. I would love a nice company car, and being able to drive around the South West fixing problems at different organisations. Different people, scenery and IT - Bonus!

    This is something i'd like to get back into. used to do it a few years ago before i got made redundant really enjoyed doing it. But i do get a day out and about during the week visiting primaries which is at least a scenery change.

    For me it would have to be a Game Keeper in the Lakes or Scotland. Out and about with my camera

    Otherwise - back to the building trade in one guise or another .

    Really don't see why these have to be fantasy jobs. As I said before I plan to work in IT to find my travels - which I'll more than likely blog. Who knows where that could lead...
