Want a sneak peek at that dream job from an insider's perspective? The Washington Post does a series called Steal This Job that spotlights different jobs. The pieces are based on an interview with someone who does that work
Some of the careers they've taken a look at include:
* Tour Guide
* Boutique Owner
* Professional Organizer
* Food Stylist
If they haven't spotlighted the career you've got your eye on, why not get the inside scoop on your own? You can get firsthand insights (and plant the seeds for relationships along the way) by doing some informational interviewing. Identify at least three people who do the work you want to explore and ask if you can ask them some questions about what that work is really like and how they got there.
