So I've begun thinking of jobs from the point of view of the one-liner job description. It's really cool how some seemingly boring jobs kinda jump out and vice-versa. It makes your really rethink what you want to do. Of course, being the brash, naive brat that I am, I will not be without my biases. Feel free to comment, and I will make changes accordingly.
Evangelist - I give people hope.
Investment Banking - I tell really really rich people where to put their money so that they eventually can earn more than I will (else they won't come to me)
Marketing - I make you want stuff, even if you don't really want it in the first place.
Social Work (NGOs etc) - I do the dirty work that no one else wants to do and my payoff is not monetary.
Investment Banking v2 - I do the dirty work that no one else wants to do and my payoff is monetary.
Consultant - I tell people how to solve their issues (like an organization level shrink)
Shrink - I listen to people and tell them how to solve their issues.
Civil Servant - I run the country.
Police officer - I do the dirty work so that your kids can go out safely.
Roadside sweeper - If I didn't do my work, you'd have to do it.
