Don't just go into teaching because you are looking for long holidays. To teach everyday you need to like children, be very patient and understanding. However I feel it is one of the most rewarding jobs out there.

Administrative
Administrative people are interested in work that offers security and a sense of being part of a larger process. They may be at their best operating under supervisors who give clear guidelines, and performing routine tasks in a methodical and reliable way.

They tend to enjoy clerical and most forms of office work, where they perform essential administrative duties. They often form the backbone of large and small organisations alike. They may enjoy being in charge of office filing systems, and using computers and other office equipment to keep things running smoothly. They usually like routine work hours and prefer comfortable indoor workplaces.

  Hint: St. Michael's House

Sounds cliched but making a difference is cool. We are meeting other professionals and dual learning is cool. Seeing people well because of your efforts and team efforts is cool. Seeing people on an aeroplane for the first time is cool. Seeing a severely disabled person in a BMW car is cool (even in any car!!) 

Not so cool is the fighting and battling you some times have to do but the rewards of that fighting and battling can be cool.
