Paying to try out your dream job

There seem to be an awful lot of posts on this article in USA Today, which talks about a company called "Vocation Vacations," which allows you to pay them to go work for a day or a few days or a week at your dream job.

Sounds a hell of a lot like Your Reality Checked on Fine Living.  Sure the show on Fine Living follows other people experiencing their dream jobs, but it doesn't cost me a thing to watch a week of someone else's experience compressed into an hour.

Don't get me wrong, I think that Vocation Vacations is probably a pretty cool thing for people that feel like they may need some real life experience before they make a career/life change; a lot of the people on Your Reality Checked decided that they didn't really want to do what they thought they wanted to do after a week of actually doing it.
