Playing with career choices
Back when I was in art school, a friend who was working on a Theatre degree discovered student services offered a career planning test. This one was based on interests rather than skills, so we decided weâ€™d both give it a spin.
The results were well worth ticking all the little boxes.
Before I tell you what happened next, I need to explain something about my friend: sheâ€™s the type that cringes at movies. If particularly well-crafted carnage were about to occur, she would, on occasion, shrink into her seat, knees heading for her chin, with at least one hand clamped over her mouth.
Her top career recommendation? Naval officer. As you might imagine, hilarity ensued.
Then I began to read my assessment aloud.
