There are many kinds of job in this world. Some of it we never even know it's a real job for them. Rough trade, executives, CEO, engineers, etc. It's not how much we earn, but rather how much we enjoy our job or our dream job. Anyone here willing to share the best job in the world? I always thought that getting paid by playing games is the best job in the world, how about you?

There is no such thing as a 'Best Job of the World' One man's medicine may well be another's poison. What really makes a job 'good', is when you do what you enjoy. What makes it better, is when it pays you to live a good life comfortably. What makes it best, is when it brings you worthwhile friends as well. Work is all about the enjoyment and satisfaction, and even the highest paid man, with the most lucrative job profile - will not be in the 'best' job if he's doing something he does not enjoy

probably a job thats related to your interests or something you really love doing. there's nothing more fulfilling than doing things that you love to do. in that way, you won't get stressed out immediately and you'll be enthusiastic all the time. and of course, a job that gives a reasonable to high pay

I think there is no job is the best job in the world.It is depending on yourself. At present, I haven't many job experiences. I just do one job. But I hope i can try the other jobs and then find a job that I like the best.

My best job in the whole world is being a mother, its the most satisfying thing i've ever done. Its probably the hardest job in the world too.

Honestly out of all the jobs that I have had being a mother tops them all. I don't think that I would trade it for the world.

I think the best job in the world would be the job you enjoy and want to do. It doesn't matter if it was being a CEO, an engineer, a nurse, a policeman, whatever. Even if it pays like million dollars if you don't like it, if you feel like it's eating you, and even if every single time people tell you that you have the best job, it won't matter. It's all up to you.

for different people,the answer is different. I don't think there is some job is the best job in the world, as we are never satisfy with someting always. it is only my own opinions.

I would say being a photographer to me would be the best job . I love taking pictures and could do this all day and still have fun doing it . I love going back and looking at pictures I took and with the digital camera now you can take a bunch of pictures trying to get that perfect shot of what you want . Next to this I would have to say parenthood . You may not make much in pay for this but the rewards are like no other job in the world . Watching your child and seeing them try everything for the first time . The wonder in their eyes when they experience something so new to them yet so old to us brings happiness when you can try to look at it through their eyes . We take for granted so much around us everyday , yet a child shows us that there is so much to be grateful for . A child can bring a quicker smile to your face when you are having a bad day then anyone else in the world and can make you feel so proud and content when they give you a hug or tell you how much they love you . And as they grow you get to take the credit for all the good you have done by raising your child to be a good part of society . The pay not be all that great but what you take with you each day will last you a lifetime :)

The ideal job would be one where I earned good money, but for now I like what I am doing. I am finally selling some of my writing, I already have a book published, and I'm even picking up extra cash from sites like MyLot. What the heck! I like being able to write, and be creative. It's my life, and that's what I want to do for a living.

Good question! I agree, it's not how much we earn in a job, but more about if we really are happy with the job. For me the best job in the world would be to have a great job at home and be able to take care of my family all at the same time. I have one actually now, doing data entry but I would love to be able to have some sort of, well, own my own business from home, that would be my dream job. Own my own business and have my family members all be involved in it and make great money doing it.

I think that a painter has the best job in the world (I mean art). He's his own boss, and if he succeeds, his work sells for millions of dollars!

every one who has those great jobs has done something to pay their dues somewhere. playing games like in the movie big is a great example of the dream job, but you have to perform at a high level of creativity. ceos operate at a very high level and make decisions that effect many people and operations. to do that they must work extremely hard and have command over multitudes of information.

I think i might want to be a social worker. You don't make that much money and the hours are crappy, but you get to help a lot of people and that make me feel good inside. Compared to a CEO the hours are still crappy but they make more money but money can't buy happiness... just a bigger house

I think the best job in the world is anything where you feel like you doing something meaningful, you enjoy yourself doing it, and you are adequately compensated, whatever that means to you.
