    It means that you have got a job to go to, which is more than an enemployed person has. It's a good dream then.

    You might be anxious about your performance if you have an uneasy feeling. If it is a happy one, you might be starting to have 'feelings' about someone there or simply that you are happy where you work.

    Perhaps it means something about your job, colleagues or work environment is on your mind, and you need to sort something out before you go to work.
    I've had the experience of dreaming about an event or place I had to go to in a dream and then woke up to realise the dream was like an alarm - there's always the danger of not waking up in time - isn't there?
    What is your conclusion?

    For several years I had a job I loved. My work was challenging, rewarding and allowed me to be a good provider to my family. However, my boss was aggressively curt, abrupt, intimidating and critical. Consequently, I found myself having numerous nightmares surrounding the work place. I think those dreams represented my frustrations and fear of job loss and how absolutely helpless I was to do anything about my situation at the time.

    It is time to take a vacation or find another job.  If your having subconscious thoughts about working, your either not happy with your job or you are spending too much time and energy focusing on your work.  Don't work overtime if you don't need to and work on not being the dependable person who is always willing to take up the slack or solving problems that always seem to be left up to you to solve.  Never bring your work home and leave your home problems at home, don't mix the two.

    Dreamers are the best people to understand a particular dream. Some useful questions to consider would be:
                     1. How did the dream make you feel?
                     2. Can you relate any symbolic meanings from what happened in the dream to your life right now?

    Either way, I hope you love your job.

    I guess you're just too excited to go to work, or you're thinking too much about work that you end up dreaming about it.

    An answer tor any particular case is impossible to render without knowing more about the patient and the details of his working status.  Psychoanalysis is extremely personal.  Even if two people were to have identical dreams, the significance of one against the other could be extreme.  Relying on dream books is not useful.  For example, a pair of dentures may mean one thing to a dentist and an entirely different thing to you.  For this audience to give more meaningful answers, you would have to open up about your personal life as well as your professional life.  Most people are reluctant to do this, which, by doing so, renders any analysis of a patient's dream of no significance.

    It may mean you went to sleep late and you mind is telling you to keep sleeping.  Nothing comes to a sleeper but a dream of going to work.  I think the dream means you need more rest.

    How do you know you had that dream "just before you woke up?"  You might have had it anytime during the night. 

    Having a dream about your job probably means that the job is highly meaningful for you and you think a lot about it during the day.  It is a very habitual 'play of your mind.'

    Years ago, when I was an aeradio operator (lot like an air-traffic controller) I used to have my mind filled both throughout the day and into a lot of my dreaming because, I think, the importance, excitement, involvement and investment in this part of my life.   If your job plays a big part in your life, it's very likely you'll both think and dream about it a lot.

    That has happened to me when I was doing something really repetative at work. I was working on a new software program and at night I dreamed about it. It was awful because I felt like I had just worked all day when I woke up and I had to go to work again!

    It simply and quite conclusively means that you are thinking about your job in your subconscious. This is all we can conclude. Thus, this may or not be a positive experience. It will take an experienced psychologist, psychoanalyst, yourself or other professional in this field to bring out the meaning of this "association" in this context (if you will). You may begin the process by asking yourself and truthfully admitting how you feel about your present situation at work etc.

    If it's a good dream, you love your job.  If it's a nightmare, you hate your job.

    This happens to me all the time. It means I didn't get everything done that I needed to get done because there aren't enough hours in the day! We are all expected to do more with less all the time. Even if we like what we do, the expectations have become unrealistic.
