The ideal job

Just had an alumni from Ohio State drop a line, asking about options and opportunities in the Cincinnati area… For some reason, I felt compelled to write a long winded reply, as his questions seemed to hint, no declare, that he was frustrated with his vocation.

After some link gathering and discussion about the Ohio Valley as a place to live and work, I suggested looking outside of the field of corporate design. In turn, I made a small realization that my perfect job would have:

  • Interaction with humans
  • A component that required time spent outdoors
  • Some type of physical exertion on a regular basis
  • Short term, tangible rewards coupled with long term (positive) effects on the community or the environment

Funny thing is, my current job is behind a computer monitor, with clients often in other cities, and often for corporate benefit. I need to find opportunities to evolve.
