Career Choices?

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

1. Go to
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...
