What is your dream job on St John...

Postby Bigcheeze » Fri Mar 18, 2011 9:28 pm

I think there may a few people that consider how to spend more time on STJ...that being said, I'm not sure if I had to work there and live there that the same great feel for the Island would be the same...that being said...here's my track to enjoy more time on STJ even if it means there a lil bit of work involved...

1. Charter Captain
2. Villa Video production
3. Bartender
4. Villa agent
5. Tour Guide
6. Drink mixoligious
7. Island Gigalo

What are yours?

Funny you should ask. I told my husband just recently I think I could be happy pumping gas at Dominoes in Coral Bay.

It will take 720 days [not hours] at sea to qualify for a USCG Captains License so get started now if that is your plan.
A good bartender can always find work - finding a good job is the difference - at least you didn't aspire the own the place.
Villa Video - a good idea and with some luck and energy could work - ask the boys at Blue Tang
Villa Agent - sitting in an office - dealing with off island owners - on island problems - ?salary + Commission - answering phones , listening to bargaining,complaints, and late night emergencies, from both sides - dream job?
Tour Guide - ? maybe? what do you know?
I don't know what a mixoligious is:--- a preacher about Booze?
Gigolo - likely your best bet!

It was a great job. One of my favorites. Helping people plan their vacations. There are annoyances with every job; doing it on STJ made it easy.

Most of those jobs do have a pretty high burn-out rate here--fine for a couple of years, but then you have to start something like No-See-Um's blog to stay sane.
Exit, I think most of the people on this forum know as at least as much as most of the tour guides currently operating ; ) :wink:

I want the job of trying to keep the island from tipping over and sinking. Sure it's a government job, but I'll still take it. The guy in Guam is doing a great job so far!

Seriously though, if I'm on STJ I don't want to work. Those two things don't exist in the same world for me. In fact, it was difficult just getting them in the same sentence!
A mind is like a parachute. It only works when it's open.

My dream job would be to be independently wealthy on STJ :lol:

Since that's never going to happen, I don't think I'll ever live there.
