The world's bestest job.

In about an year and a half, I would finally be passing out of an engineering college, to probably assume the job of one amongst the millions of IT professionals, with a dream of getting admission into a B-School still in my mind. But what would I deem fit to be the best job I could ever have??? Well I could kill for the job of a BBC Presenter. And not just the presenter of any show, I’d like to have the job of a presenting the show Top Gear. In other words, I’d like to be in the shoes of Jeremy Clarkson. Jeremy Clarkson has been hosting Top Gear and quite a few other motoring and also some traveling shows for BBC since for as long as I remember watching television. In fact he has been associated with the Top gear ever since 1988... that makes the show almost as old as the show The Bold And The Beautiful which premiered in 1987 (as time runs into decades, an year barely matter ; ) ). Jeremy Clarkson is like the Oprah of the motoring world (Oprah BTW has been on air with her show since 1986... Damn!!! her show is almost as old as I am) Top gear isn’t like your average auto-review show where the presenter simply shows you stationary cars at auto-shows and rides simulators. This show is filled with excitement (i.e., if you are a guy :P ). These guys, they race cars, with not only other cars, but with vans, trucks, buses, boats, planes (man was that cool) and even with the London underground. They have track races, drag races, drift races, destruction derbies and even those cool eight figured races. They build cars, modify em, and they even destroy em. Theses people, when they take their cars on the test track, they push these cars to the limit and they burn so much rubber, I can almost smell it through the TV. So, given a chance to have any job in the world, I’d opt for that of Jeremy Clarkson.

I like the job but I would prefer the job of a travel show host. Think travelling throughout the world and also being paid for it.

On the other hand I would not really mind being the CEO of a fortune 500 company

Jeremy Clarkson travels around the world too... u know...

There is a lotta money in that field (CEO of a fortune 500)... But in the words of Mike Shinoda... it's more of a matter doing what you like and liking what you do.
