If you could have any job in the world, what would it be?
my answer to this question varies day-to-day, sometimes even between times of day. but more often than not, i arrive to the same dream job: talent coordinator/producer for a late night talk show. or morning or daytime or primetime talk show.
entertainment has always been an interest of mine. i don’t particularly like that anyone who lists “watching movies and television, listening to music” as hobbies can claim the same (fyi: those are NOT hobbies, but that is another rant for another blog post for another day). i mean, who doesn’t like watching movies/tv and listening to music? but for most, these are activities they do on their down time, their escape from the humdrum 9-to-5, one that likely doesn’t accomodate much less encourage that kind of “procrastinating”. tomAtos, tomAHtos.
it’s simple. i really like music, and i really like television. my dream job would seamlessly merge those interests together, and it would pay me. to scour and sift through emerging bands/artists, build relationships with publicists and other industry folk, coordinate artist and show schedules, accomodate requests and demands (or try my damnest to), above all else, to help create some quality innovative eclectic unique programming for everyone to see. to be a part of a developing act’s first-time television appearance would be very rewarding, but not as rewarding as maybe finding out that so-and-so is a new fan after having seen their riveting performance on such-and-such show that i helped produce. i also wouldn’t want to just limit myself to talent on the musical guest segment of the show either, though given my “background” it is where the larger part of the dream comes from.
so, if anyone has any advice on how to make this dream job a reality, holleratchurgrrl.
