If you could do any job in the world what would it be?

If you could do any job in the world except UX what would you choose and why?


#2

I’d be a hairdresser/colourist. I’m very good (in my hairdresser’s opinion) at colouring hair - in natural shades and unnatural shades. She says there’s ‘a frustrated hairdresser living inside’ of me and I think she might be right. It’s like colouring in but with chemicals and dyes and on a page that has 1000s of following pieces that can turn into anything.

I also think I’d be pretty happy working at a cattery and playing with other people’s cats all day while they’re on holidays.

Or a tattoo artist! I’d love that :slight_smile:


#3

a footballer! Or a theme park designer


#4

They say dress for the job you want, not the job you have. Now I’m sitting in a disciplinary meeting dressed as Batman.


#5

Making one off ceramic pieces
Or be an architect though it would have to be really cool buildings.
Or buy old interesting derelict buildings and bring them back to life.


#6

Ha. I studied architecture and practiced for a couple of years. At university all our projects were really cool buildings. In the real world they were home renovations. I was so disillusioned that I quit.

And then I did this. We bought a turn of the century Bungalow and spent a year renovating it. We now live in it and I feel so fulfilled.


#7

I wanted to be an architect when I was younger. Create unique homes or buildings.


#8

wow, i studied architecture for a couple years too, as i always wanted to be one. Seems to be a theme here. Amongst other things, I was discouraged when the tutor said most grads end up designing car parking spaces or extensions!


#9

I ended up designing extensions and workstation layouts in banks.


#10

Novelist.


#11

I’d be an air traffic controller again. I loved that job.


#12

UX designer for video games companies.

If you could do any job in the world except UX :wink:
