Default What is your dream job?

Little background first. I am currently a full time student doing a Cooperative Work Experience course at my school. I get credit for working in my field. I have an AAS in Diesel Technology, and I work for the railroad. I mostly stock parts and order parts, but I have to sign off defects and that to. I enjoy this job but I had way more fun working for Wyoming Machinery Company over the summer and wrenching on mine equipment. Only because I got to work on stuff. But the job I have doesn't allow me to.

I want to know what your dream job is? For me I would be doing the same thing I am now, I make ridiculous money, the thing I would change now is that I actually get to work on them not just around them.

Im Navy ROTC. When I get out of the navy, my dream is to open up my own custom shop. Love working on cars of all kinds and doing new crazy things with them.

I love doing custom work, I used to build imports for friends, I hate them but I made good money off of my buddies making brackets, doing turbo setups for them, electrical, etc. But I like working on domestics and hot rods way better, I miss my old 64 Camino.

Just to get into the police academy you need 32 college credit hours. I have 22 maybe a little more. I am 28 now and 2nd child on the way. I have no time for classes right now.

I could probably get a job at the city jail and work my way there. Right now the city is in financial trouble so there is no hiring
