Canada / 47 per cent saying they had already found their dream jobs says a survey

A dream job may not be as elusive as you think.

Nearly half of Canadians recently surveyed said they were already working in their dream jobs, according to a poll by the Bank of Montreal.

The survey results, released Wednesday, listed 47 per cent of respondents as saying they had already found their dream jobs, while two-thirds (65 per cent) said they looked forward to going into the office each day.

And 70 per cent of those surveyed say they feel that they’re valued at work.

Peter Harris of job search website Workopolis said he was pleasantly surprised by the results.

“Dream jobs are the ultimate goal. It’s good to hear that so many people have achieved it,” said Harris, editor-in-chief of the online website.

“It sounds surprising to me because Workopolis deals with the other half. People who interact with us … are people who haven’t achieved the dream yet and that’s why they’re looking to make a career change.”

Despite the high level of satisfaction at work, a majority (64 per cent) say they would quit their jobs in a heartbeat if they ever won the lottery. That wasn’t the case for small business owners, with only 39 per cent saying they would sell their business if they ever hit the jackpot.
