Career Decisions: What to Be When I Grow Up Aptitude Test
So, recently I have been faced with the question of: “what do I want to do for a living?”. This question sucks. I mean, how do you know what you want to be? Do you do what runs in your family, as in the olden days (dad’s a baker, your a baker?), are you lucky enough to inherit a family business that you may or may not want to run and ruin? Do you join the Army and have the government tell you what to do for a living? Or, are you like most of the people my age who go to college and study something that they like to study? And when you start, there are seriously a million jobs in the market and everyone wants to hire you? And then, when you graduate, there are some jobs, but they are in Antarctic and you don’t want to move to Africa to go to work every day. And even if you did, the pay sucks because it’s an entry level position.
And then, when you finally get the job you think is really the job you spent $40,000 on college for, job of your dreams that you are going to love forever and ever amen, you hate it with ever fiber in your soul.
So, how do you decide what you want to be? What do you want to do with life? And when you do decide, how do you get someone to hire you? And pay you to do something that you love to do?
So, I am going to make an aptitude test. If other sites can make stupid tests that everyone and their brother depend on for instructional guidance in life, so can I.
