Snatched from all over.

1. Go to

2. Put in Username: nycareers, Password: landmark.

3. Take their “Career Matchmaker” questions.

4. Post the top umpty results:

The careers I’ve worked in are bold. Careers I've considered (if only during irrational moments in college) are italicized.

(This was actually kind of scarily accurate.)

  1. Desktop Publisher
  2. Cartoonist / Comic Illustrator (the utter lack of drawing/drafting skills is a drawback)
  3. Animator
  4. Writer
  5. Critic
  6. Market Research Analyst
  7. Print Journalist
  8. Medical Illustrator
  9. Translator (I'm actually quite bad with foreign languages)
  10. Political Aide
  11. Activist
  12. Graphic Designer (I love this kind of work, but being color blind meant I couldn't seriously pursue it)
  13. Artist
  14. Computer Animator
  15. Anthropologist
  16. Editor
  17. Archivist
  18. Casting Director
  19. Comedian (yes, I considered this, in, like, high school, but back then I had stage fright. Also: not funny enough.)
  20. Health Records Professional
  21. Historian
  22. Composer
  23. Musician (shut up. I was an almost-competent bass player!)
  24. Public Relations Specialist
  25. Website Designer (sadly, yes, because I was the most web-savvy person in the company. I made this website, many years ago, though it's changed a bit. I quickly realized web design was not the job for me.)
  26. Communications Specialist
  27. Public Policy Analyst
  28. Actor
  29. Fashion Designer
  30. Criminologist (!!!)
  31. Special Effects Technician
  32. Costume Designer
  33. Interior Designer
  34. Potter (tempting. But do potters get health insurance? Hmmm.)
  35. Craftsperson (I like how generic this one is.)
  36. Medical Secretary
  37. Set Designer
  38. Postal Clerk
  39. Industrial Designer
  40. Technical Writer

I'm surprised it doesn't mention advertising copywriter, which I'm very temperamentally suited to, except for the whole part where it makes me feel like my soul is dissolving.
