What Job Title Would Make You Beam With Pride?

Scroll down ↓

This week, I asked the following question on twitter:


As always, I’m fascinated by the range of answers (and the number of people who are both kind and bold enough to share them).

In this experiment, I was also struck by how many people found it to be an interesting enough question to pass on by “retweeting,” but did not share an answer of their own. I think it speaks to the desire to explore it, along with the challenge of answering the question in a genuine way.

Anyway, enough waxing, here’s what a bunch of people said (BTW, the bottom two answers were from me)…


So, what about you? How would answer this question?

    Professional Writer… plain and simple

    I’m sorry I missed this when you posted on Twitter. I guess I would have said, “I submitted the Runner-Up design for the Yankee Stadium.” Then, assuming, the party wasn’t above ground level (Yankee fans would have tossed me off the balcony,) I go with the usual, “Seu’s daddy, Lisa’s husband, kayaker, mountain biker, and story teller.”

    Btw, THE correct answer of course was your last one.

    Just read about women in careers that are traditionally male and very impressed by one of very few female Qantas pilots who flies 747s. As much as I wanted to be a surgeon when younger, the thought telling someone I’m a pilot seems very cool and impressive!

    I did not see this until now, and I have not read all of the responses so forgive me if I repeat someone elses answer. How could you not be proud to say that you are the medical researcher who discovered the cure for cancer? That would be my answer.

    I’d like to be able to say that I’m an entrepreneur. I have always wanted to start my own business ever since I started selling ice popsicles when I was five years old. Back then I had my parents to buy all the necessary ingredients, tools, and pay for electricity and my signage to be posted on our gate. Now, I’m still looking at what business module I wouldn’t mind working on till the wee hours of the morning and one that would definitely earn me some investors.

    On a side note, I think surfer would be a good one too. I don’t want to be a pro but I’m an avid surf fan. Sadly, I haven’t surfed for a year and I’m itching to hit some waves.
