I am a millennial and I am gonna be straight up about finding dream job - I don’t care. My view is: find a high paying job, become good at it, and get paid until you reach financial independence. As you can see, you will not find words like passion, dream job in this plan. My personal opinion about dream job - I don’t need it.
Too many people get caught up in this “follow your dream”, “must have dream job” mentality. Not me. If I am gonna wake up in the morning and go to work, I will do it for the biggest paycheck I can.
I don’t care about being burned out, I don’t care about loving my job. When you are on your FIRE journey, you want to make as much money as you can and save as much as you can.
Dream jobs don’t exist, because there are too many factors that can ruin it. Even though you may love what you do, you may have a difficult coworker or manager, you make have come in too early or leave to late. It is a lot easier to accept the rules of the game and maximize your paycheck instead. Dream job is when you planning to work there forever. But if you are on FIRE journey, your time is limited. You not gonna be working there forever.
To summarize it, I would say: pick a high paying major/job/career and get rich as soon as you can and FIRE asap. Cause after you FIRE, it is not gonna matter.
