Career Choices?  
Okay, everyone's doing this one... and I suddenly realized it was directly applicable to my job hunt.

1. Go to http://www.careercruising.com/.
2. Put in Username: nycareers, Password: landmark.
3. Take their "Career Matchmaker" questions using the same username and password.
4. Post the top ten results

01. Arborist
02. Explosives Specialist
03. Ecologist
04. Land Surveyor
05. Oceanographer

06. Astronomer
07. Geologist
08. Hydrologist / Hydrogeologist
09. Environmental Consultant

10. Forensics Specialist

Like halfelf, I seem to be in the right general area: 03, 04 , 05, 07, 08, and 09 are all jobs that fall well within the rather broad parameters of my "Earth Systems Science & Policy" degree, and #01 is still in that general area.

#02 suggests that I just don't get enough opportunities to blow sh*t up. I have to work on that.

EDIT: returntonull suggests "Ecoterrorist". Time to check craigslist...

I so should have stuck it out for MST. I wound up getting out so I could go back to school, and spent the next thirteen years working and studying to...

...get a degree that's basically MST, and not find work.

I could be RETIRED now, instead of STARTING my career. =P

...great. I'm going back to bed now. Wake me up in November.

Seems everyone is doing this career thing lately. ^^ Mine all gave various results in Technology, Science, and R&D. Research could definitely have its benefits, 'specially depending on where you do it, and what.

Can't go wrong with Astronaut/Colonist though. ^..^ Not much o' a demand for those yet however.

Well, you know, they don't advertise for killers in a newspaper.
