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.

  1. The Career Aptitiude Test Your Result: The Do Gooder You are always more concerned about others than yourself. You are willing to make a fool out of yourself in public just to tell the world that eating meat is murder. You are out to protect everything from the man, including things that might possibly suffer in the future. You will die in a country where they don’t speak English from some rare disease that you contracted by drinking the local water. And, no, patchouli is not a substitute for a good shower.

  4. Since when do I do good? In fact I try and do evil when possible. I am a student so it was half right.

  10. doug lefelhocz. i heard about you from my sister + her friends. for someone who never left their hometown you should take career finding more seriously. maybe a step up from ticket jockey at the movies? oh well, we cant all be einsteins. see ya!

  11. Janey,

    I really have no idea who you are. Likewise you really have no idea about me as I have lived away from my hometown and I’ve never worked at a movie theater. I also wonder what you mean exactly by “step up” and how you’ve come up with your “ranking system” for jobs and/or careers in general. You also seem to have missed the humor of my comment and probably the ideas the original poster had in mind considering the “career aptitude” test.
