What is your dream career?

Will you start or run your own firm or organization in the for-profit or nonprofit world? Or be self-employed or freelancing in the arts or in the creative sector? 

Maybe you’ll start off in a position at an established firm working in consulting, finance, accounting, marketing, public relations, or sales, and work your way up the corporate ladder.
