Does Your Child Want to Work at Lego?

Or the Cartoon Network?  How about Google?  Or even the Disney Store?

Middle school is a great time for students to start thinking about what careers or companies they might want to pursue later on.  One of my friends runs a Career Exploration coop, where families arrange field trips to all sorts of different workplaces to expose young people to interesting occupations beyond simply "doctor," "lawyer," "computer programmer."

In that vein, I wanted to share this link to the 10 most eye-catching workplaces on the planet.  Check them out; these places are really, really cool.  But I wonder if it is a chicken or the egg sort of thing....are the companies so successful because their environments are so creative, or are the environments so creative because their companies are so successful?  Whichever it is, it could inspire your child to really get outside the box in envisioning her or his ideal workplace.

I think the link above also goes well with the Sukkah City post I had last week.  Both are examples of completely rethinking our living or working spaces.
