List Rules Vote up the coolest dream careers & professions

Somewhere between your dream job and your real job are the best jobs in the world; job titles that some extremely lucky people actually have. While some of the coolest careers also rank among the world's rarest jobs, there are plenty of dream jobs available for the taking (or at least for the applying and the interviewing).

What would be your dream job? What would you love to spend every day doing? If you dream of an extraordinary career that falls outside of the most common jobs in the world, there's a chance you'll find something that tickles your fancy on this list of the best jobs in the world.

Some of the world's best jobs include movie critic, actor or actress, video game tester, and other leisurely pursuits like car tester and holiday reporter. Since not everyone has the same idea about what their top, or even top 10 dream jobs might be, make sure to add your dream profession if it's not already on this list of the coolest jobs in the world.
