Indians living their dream (jobs)

Last Updated: Sun, Jan 13, 2013 09:17 hrs

Indians shouldn't be cribbing about their jobs if a recent survey by LinkedIn is any indication. India has topped the list of countries where people are working in their dream jobs, with 44 per cent Indians admitting they have the career they wanted as a child. The networking website surveyed more than 8,000 professionals globally to find out about the most common childhood aspirations.

Not surprisingly, the most sought after profession in India (and some other developing nations) is that of an engineer, while in first world countries, such as the US and Canada, the job of a teacher is the most coveted one. British men wanted to be pilots while British women wanted to be doctors. But only 21 per cent of them ended up in jobs they had dreamed about as children.
