MEME: Sunday Seven -- Episode 11

Sunday Seven - Episode 11

Ever thought of changing careers? This week's "Sunday Seven" will show you the Top 25 jobs for 2005, as defined by Fast Company.

What makes a top job? That would mean different things to different people, but Fast Company used several different methods to compile a list of the top 25 jobs, including job growth, salary potential, education level, and room for innovation.

Before the official question, it's time to recognize Kelly of "In My Opinion, and Yes I have an opinion on EVERYTHING," another Vivi Award nominee, as the first person to answer last week's question about Thanksgiving Dinner! Congratulations to Kelly!

Get ready to start dreaming about alternate career choices. Here we go:

Of the Top 25 Jobs for 2005, list, in order, the seven jobs you'd least like to have, with #1 being the job you think you'd absolutely hate the most. All seven should be jobs you wouldn't want.

Either answer the question in a comment or answer it in your journal and include the link in a comment. (To be considered "first to play," a link must be to the specific entry in which you answered the question.)

1. Chicken plucker – I lasted for just a day at the poultry factory when I was 16. My job involved taking the chickens out of their crates and breaking their necks – the next fellow hung them on hooks and removed their heads. It was gruesome...

  1. Hog Farmer – today's mechanized “factory farm” operation just sucks the hairy wazoo...

3. Sardine Factory worker responsible for disposing of the “gurry

4. Medical Health Services Manager

5. Security Sales Analyst – in fact, there isn't a sales job in the world I'd want

6. Advertising & Promotions Manager

  1. Actuary

  2. Agent and business manager of any sort of celebrities – they all suck.

  3. Athlete

  4. Personal Finance Adviser

    What? You say I didn't follow the directions? So? Wanna make something out of it? I threw the first three in to see if you were paying attention.

    You can play, too, if you care to. Just stop by the Meme-Meister Patrick's Lair and he'll fix you right up. Even has them fancy comment thingies so's you can leave a link to your very own answers. And did you know, Patrick has a special formula for eliminating jock itch? It's true ... just ask him.
