I post maybe one meme a year. I found this one too funny to not share.

1. Go to http://www.careercruising.com/
2. Put in Username: nycareers, Password: landmark
3. Take their "Career Matchmaker" questions.
4. Post the top ten results.

1. Humanitarian Aid Worker
2. Air Traffic Controller
3. Cartographer
4. Director of Photography
5. Musician
6. Composer
7. Special Effects Technician
8. Film Editor
9. Marriage and Family Therapist
10. Social Worker
...
14. Art / Music Therapist
...
20. Recording Engineer
21. Venture Capitalist
...
34. Truck Driver
...
38. Producer
39. Comedian
40. GIS Specialist


The idea of me being a Humanitarian Aid Worker is just hilarious.
Music Therapist would seem to be a better number two than Air Traffic Controller.
I am very glad Cartographer beat out GIS Specialist.

But where is professional gambler?

ps Note that if I were to start grad school again, I would seriously look into music therapy. I can't imagine there are a lot of people like me in the field.

I knew I was always destined to work in theatre, or as a blue-collar machinist of some sort. Makes me wonder why I bothered with college.

I'm glad it specifies you should be an UNDERGROUND miner. Those above-ground ones are jerks.

Re: my results

I think Market Research Analyst is the only really weird one.

They're all people/performance/storytelling ones, you know?

This is what happens when I start writing shell scripts before 8am on a Saturday. Animals, kids, other people? Nah---give me tools and a thing to fix.
I'll take the test again when I'm in a more social mood.

Here's a sign the site might not have me figured out (or I'm not giving the answers they want):

Interest Rank
1.Drywaller
2.Pipefitter
3.Tilesetter
4.Glazier
5.Carpenter
6.Tow Truck Driver
7.Business Systems Analyst
8.Locksmith
9.Motivational Speaker
10.Office Machine Repairer
11.Corporate Trainer
12.Concrete Mason
13.Road Construction and Maintenance Worker
14.Construction Tradesperson
15.Flooring Installer
16.Insulator
17.Plasterer
18.Ironworker
19.Sprinkler System Installer
20.Bricklayer / Stonemason

That being said, I would do #6,7,10,11, and maybe, just maybe #20. #11 is actually one of the things I do now.
