Ideal Jobs Throughout History

I remember when I was about to graduate from high school, friends and family would offer their recommendation as to what would be the perfect job for me.  Some recommended a trade job like electrician, others offered landing a government job like a mail carrier, and a few suggested getting a union job..  Throughout history, the ideal job has changed.  Here is a short list the best jobs throughout history.
