#5 is where I want to be. I'd love to work for a non-profit organization like the American Cancer Society. It would literally be the best job in the world :)

I'd also recommend working for a nonprofit service provider. My company, See3 Communications, provides marketing, video and web-services to nonprofits and social causes. I used to do for-profit marketing and I am so, so glad to only work with clients who are truly making the world a better place every day. P.S. We're hiring too: http://see3.com/work-with-us ;)

You forgot Parent
Median Pay: overjoy

Education: read every book on parenting, blog, post, listen to your friends, mother, aunts, in laws, and then go with your gut.

Truly - Teacher must be one of the most impacting professions in this world.
