A pilot came in to college on a careers day he reckoned about 80k to get the license you need to be a commercial pilot.

somebody i know, who is on the road to becoming a commercial pilot is being sponsored through uni - and then on through till she achieves what she needs to become a commercial pilot. So i'm guessing sponsorship is the best way to go…

added to my list:
fashion photographer for a womens high fashion mag
actually any job that i can make alot of money and keep long hair and wear skinny jeans everyday is fine wit me

What are your skills? all of your ideal jobs are more specialised talent + luck. Long hair and skinny jeans wont be important when your 30.

I've got my ideal "job", started up a company. Has its hard days, but mostly great fun and really varied, one week you could be thinking about new products, the next writing code, the next thinking up marketing schemes.

Anything where I'd be interacting with people alot and get to travel. Obviously becoming a tefl teacher is more of a gap-year thing without much of a future but it seems to allow a far better quality of life than I'd be looking at having in this country in the foreseeable future, and meets my ideal job criteria I suppose. Think that's what I'll do for a while.
I was planning on leaving in January but decided I wanted to try and have a bit more money behind me before leaving because I don't really plan on coming back. Starting a job on Monday but besides getting to have free dinners with suppliers it sounds shite and they want blood for pretty shit money.
I made terrible choices all the way through but I figure that the tefl thing is a nice way of escaping and I'm sure that there are opportunities in lots of the countries (eg. Korea and Japan) that you could kick your way into, besides recruitment which is all I ever hear of people crossing over to.
