As I was flipping through the prompt book, I chose this prompt because I felt it was pretty ironic that I stumbled across it.  I will answer just the prompt and then elaborate more on it in a follow on post.

Pick one of the following careers: music DJ, sushi chef, or firefighter.  This will be your job for the next 3 months.  Why did you choose it, and what benefit do you think you will gain from it.

Of the three jobs listed I pick firefighter.  The main reason I pick that over the other two is it fits my interests and talents more.  While I love to listen to music, I have never had any desire to create, mix, or do anything else with music besides listen to it.  When it comes to food, I love to eat sushi, but have no interest in ever making it (BBQ, and smoking are my two food interests).

I feel that firefighter is the best pick for me for several reasons.

  1. I want to be able to help people
  2. I’m a physical person, and nothing says physical like smashing down doors, running into a burning building, and carrying someone out.
  3. I like to be part of a team.  The other jobs listed are all pretty single person jobs, and while I don’t mind it, like I said I prefer to operate as a team, and become friends with my team.

Some of the benefits I see to being a firefighter are:

  • Helping people
  • Being on a team
  • staying in better shape
  • making new friends
  • solid career

Now like I said at the beginning of the post, this prompt is ironic because i’m starting the process of hopefully becoming a firefighter.  I will make another post completely covering that, and should have it up sometime today.  Thanks for reading and be on the lookout for prompt #2.
