I've worked on Wall Street as a stock broker, at the Harvard Business School in MBA Admissions and at The French Culinary Institute as a Director of Admissions.
Kerry Taylor's new offerings had me dreaming of some other glamourous jobs in addition to clothing dealer that I might want to add to my resume one day.
A spy decked out in an Alaia trench coat, a photographer for Visionaire Magazine or the owner of an art gallery that sells Mondrian paintings are just a few of my dream jobs. 
If you could change careers what would your next dream job be?
