I took an online career quiz at Career Cruising (username: nycareers and password: landmark) called the Career Matchmaker, and now I'm posting my results for what my career should be.
Bold: I like this option
*: Something I would be interested in doing-- my interest level varies from one star (might make a good summer job, temp job or last choice) to five stars (I am currently actively pursuing this job). My commentary on the other options is included.
7.Librarian-well, not as a career
10.Mental Health Nurse
17.Plastic Surgeon-- what is up with all the beauty things?
19.Doctor*****--This is what I actually intend to do, of course.
20.Dermatologist-not really but they do pay amazingly well
30.Musical Instrument Builder and Repairer-- uh, what?
31.Tailor / Dressmaker
34.Dispatcher--again, not as a full-time career
35.Library Technician--see previous
36.Market Research Analyst
Then I added more criteria, to make it a bit more precise. The results were much better.
4.Dermatologist - money and a good schedule, I guess.
9.Cartoonist / Comic Illustrator
11.Taxidermist - NOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!
13.Mental Health Nurse
35.Religious Worker - riiiiiiight.
It looks like I would be okay with the careers I prefer. Also, alternatively, art seems to come up a lot. What do you think-- would I look good in all black with a beret and a cigarette and weird jewelry, bone thin as I murmur about the sublime use of shape and pick paint out of my nails?
The bone thin is because there's no way I could make money at that...
