So I just paid $9.00 to take a personality test to help me find a new career.
I had some general ideas of different fields that I think I might be interested, like training or counseling but I felt like I needed a second witness, if you will, confirming that my career options are in fact a field that my personality and biology are predisposed to do.
Here are some of the exciting career options that this survey says I would be great at.:
- · Library Technician or Assistant
- · Computer Operator (Isn’t that I what I do all day any way?)
- · File Clerk
- · Utility Meter Reader
- · Telephone Operator
- · Slot Supervisor (I hope they are referring to “slot machines”)
- · Bus or Subway Driver
- · Postal Service Clerk
- · Costume Attendant
- · Parking Enforcement Worker
- · Gaming Dealer or Gaming Cage Worker
- · Parking Lot Attendant
- · Cook, Fast Food
- · Maid
- · Nonfarm Animal Caretaker
Are they serious?
I am now really confused. None of the options I have been considering, that I have some natural raw talent in, even make the cut.
And secondly, if these, in fact, are the careers that I am predisposed to enjoy, why in the world did I waste so much time going to school and getting a Masters degree. In hind sight, that was a just huge waste of time. If I would have jump into of these great career fields instead of wasting my time in school, I could be a head cook at McDonalds or the Head Costume Attendant at my local Zurchers.
I feel like I have wasted so much time that I can never get back.
Well this has been most eye opening.
I am putting in my application for a Nonfarm Animal Caretaker today…on second thought, Um, I think I want my $9.00 back!
