Entertainment is one of America’s top dream industries

JobSage recently surveyed 1,200 Americans in the workforce about their current jobs versus their dream jobs growing up.

So, what would Americans do for work if they could have their pick? Professionals ranked which industry they would want to work in, and entertainment came out on top.


  • Entertainment ranked the #2 dream industry, beaten only by technology.
  • It’s not such an easy field to break into though. Only 3% of aspiring entertainment professionals surveyed made it into the industry.
  • Only 2% of would-be writers actually became one.
  • Across industries, the median “dream” salary is $120,000 — that’s more than double the current median salary of about $50,000.

In 1981 we officially moved our offices to Hollywood. Now we are bringing the same original spirit of journalism with today's new media energy to the Hollywood Times on the internet, with a growing stream of readers worldwide. The Hollywood Times has meticulously complied a team of the most talented writers and photographers from around the country to bring you the latest and best in entertainment news! From the Pacific Ocean to the Hollywood Hills and around the US and the world - the Hollywood Times is your source for entertainment news.
