Career Meme

1. Go to
2. Put in Username: nycareers, Password: landmark.
3. Take their "Career Matchmaker" questions.
4. Post the top umpty results.
5. Bold the ones you've done, and italicize the ones you've considered. Strikethrough those you strongly dislike.

After doing the first set of questions my results weren't that great. Throwing in the skills, the grades in (), and education level helped some. However at that point "10.

I must say, this is the best career test I've ever taken.
