This is an easy question for me now because I didn't have a dream career... Until now. Yeah, I know it sounds strange because I studied Marketing but if you can see from my LinkedIn profile I didn't really worked as a marketer and I don't consider myself one now. I do have some marketing knowledge and in my current job I've been able to update some of my past knowledge, and learned a lot of new stuff too.
So by experimenting and, on the verge of a midlife crisis, I decided to reinvent myself one year ago. And the timing was perfect!
Now back to the question: My dream career is being a Social Media expert and according to Malcolm Gladwell's 10,000-hour rule I'm still about 7,800 hours away from my goal - in my case it will mean about three and a half more years of hard work and dedication. So I'm not that far away! Cool!
I guess I was just lucky that I had the opportunity to be a Social Media Manager for the company that I've been working at during the last 4 years.
