Includes some info on a Disney dream job survey, but also hints around at an upcoming contest to do your dream job for a day.

More U.S. Workers Would Rather Have a Fun Job than a High-Paying One

New Survey from Talks about Dream Jobs

According to a new survey released by and Disney Parks, four out of five U.S. workers report they are still searching for their dream jobs. And what makes a dream-job-come-true? Almost 40-percent of the 6000 workers surveyed say having fun at work is the most important attribute for a dream job. Only 12-percent said salary is most important.

A majority of those surveyed say it would be fun to work at a Disney Park, and job seekers at now have a chance to win a Disney Dream Job, an honorary one-day position to try out the fun jobs they dreamed of having as children. The survey shows that as kids, men dreamed more of being cowboys or boat skippers than we did of being even president. Little girls would rather be a princess or a dancer, and we keep those dreams alive inside us, even as we become responsible parents with grown-up jobs.

The most popular honorary Disney Parks job for men is "Jungle Cruise Skipper" at 47-percent, with "Pirate" close behind at 26-percent. For women, the most popular Disney Dream Job is far and away "Princess-in-waiting" with 33-percent of those surveyed saying they'd like to have that job for a day. Haunted Mansion Maid was women's second choice at 20-percent.

Mine would definitely be the Jungle Cruie Skipper....I can definitely recite the whole spiel, and one skipper even gave me the opportunity to "give the tour" myself as I rode it with just my sisters and other family at nearly 3 in the morn during was great...I got a recommendation card to present to the casting card by another skipper...Im still debating on whether or not to take the possible position as a skipper since I go to college in Orlando....I just feel that getting the job may cause "the magic to be lost", and also negate my Annual Pass that I purchased in August...just thought Id share...

I was just thinking about this the other day. The two jobs at the top of my list are a JC Skipper or, well this may sound weird, but one of the guys on the back of the tram. Either way, you get to crack jokes with and on guests at somepoint.
