Compared to the death-defying jobs of Felix Baumgartner and Jeb Corliss (whom I referenced in a previous blog), the majority of all other professions seem rather unexciting and dull.
While I can honestly state that I would never want any part of my career to involve breaking the speed of sound in a free fall or flying without two big engines and a pilot, I do enjoy a little variety and excitement in my job.
Yet, I wouldn’t be a good career coach if I didn’t acknowledge that not everyone finds the things I enjoy exciting (i.e. researching the latest job trends, finding the hidden job market and evaluating the impact of personality on career paths). What one person finds exciting may be a great cure for insomnia for someone else.What’s frustrating to observe though, is that more military spouses are resigning themselves to jobs that they are told will be great for them when they are actually overqualified and underpaid.
