7 Cool Jobs You Wish You Had

We are fortunate enough to have jobs especially in this economy, but you are probably lying if you say that you have never stared out the window and daydreamed about another job that is cooler than yours. Or maybe you have seen someone working a unique job and you felt the jealousy.

Some of the best and coolest jobs are difficult to attain, but there are some that are fun and attainable. Here is my list of the coolest jobs that you might have a chance at.

Screen Printer

If you are creative person with an eye for fashion then you should consider learning the art of screen printing. A screen printer’s job is to design and print custom t-shirts for sports teams, businesses and other organizations.

If you like design, art and creativity then this could be a good fit for you.

Social Media Manager

Chances are that you tweet and “like” daily on social media sites. How fun would it be to get paid for managing a business’s social media accounts?

Dog Trainer

Maybe I put this on the list because I love dogs, but who doesn’t it? I can see how one may not see this as an awesome job, but I think that you should reconsider. Not only can dogs be fun, but pet owners are willing to pay a lot of money for someone to train their dog so that they don’t have to. You might even get famous for doing it if you are good enough. Just look at Cesar Milan the dog whisperer.

Film Critique

Who doesn’t love watching movies and having an opinion about them? Film critiques have the task of letting the people know what movies are worth seeing before they come out. Granted, they are not always right (in my opinion), but someone is paying them to do it so good for them.

Ok, I know what you’re thinking, that this is not an attainable job, but consider freelancing movie reviews for the local paper first or maybe blogging about movies. It could take you somewhere.


Whether you love creating fiction or discussing news and current events, writing is a field that most don’t consider when daydreaming about their dream job. Imagine getting paid for writing a story though, a chance to create something that people will read for entertainment or information.

Writing can be a powerful and effective medium for getting your thoughts and imagination out there to the masses. Consider starting your own blog to get a feel of what it’s like to be a writer.

Photo Journalist

Who doesn’t like traveling and documenting the adventure with pictures? Photojournalist have one of the coolest jobs. Paid to travel all over the world and take pictures of peoples, places, animals, events and more. If you love adventure then you would love being a photojournalist.


Who hasn’t dreamed of being an actor? Granted, the chances of that happening are slim, but if you work hard, meet the right people and get a shot at it then it could be the coolest thing ever. Meet new, interesting people, travel, build a name and reputation and the pay isn’t too bad either.

If you really think acting is something that you would be interested in then volunteer and get involved in your local theatre and see how that goes first before you pack up and move to Hollywood.
