Let's assume all jobs paid the same. With that in mind, what would you do for a living?


A long time ago, before I started my own business, I asked the above question, when I was a manager at a software company. Actually a longer form. Let's assume we lived in a world in which all jobs paid the same. Bill Gates and the janitor down the street got paid the same. What would you do for a living? I used this question when I interviewed candidates for positions. You'd be surprised at what people would say, as opposed to what they had been doing as a job in the past, or what they were applying for.

    bankscottage, I really appreciate your words. As for me, the Air Force was great because of the comraderie. I enjoy what I do now because I help people & provide direction. I would personally like to do more speaking, but haven't pursued it eno

    Larry, I agree with you. All the wealth made in a job of which you derive no personal satisfaction, but do it for the money is a dead end. Thank you for your input.
