My "Ideal" Job

I just spent the day in Flint (a major Michigan city) being tested and counseled for my job search.

A combination of my personality, interests and and intelligence combined to give what they think would be the perfect job for me.

I am non-aggressive and am fairly passive, doing best in a low competition environment. I am curious about just about everything. I have a good memory. I function best in a well-ordered environment. Information seems to be my key interest.

They decided I would probably be happiest as . . . .

A librarian.

Now there is a job with millions of openings all over the country. I think I'll look a little closer at some of the other matches.

Perhaps a good match but, at least in the county in which I work, a job that is thankless, underpaid and subject to instant sacking due to budgetary constraints.

When I was in a Home Economics class in 8th grade, we had to take one of those kinds of tests to see which job we were best suited for. I tried to rig my answers to make the test tell me I should be a football player.

It said I should be a nurse.

Today, I'm neither a nurse, nor a football player.

Go figure.

I took one in high school saying I should be in HVAC. Although, the future career will more likely be engineering.

What's wrong with being a librarian? Have you ever thought about teaching? We need people like you in our schools! They have a great program here where you can teach and get your education masters at the same time.

Librarian would be a great job but not a lot of openings out there.

There are supposed to be lots of openings for librarians out there, but no-one I know can find them.
