Rethinking My Career Choice

I’ve been searching for work and have accounts on a few different job sites that send me updates every so often.  I was scrolling through one tonight and mixed in with the usual jobs in my field were four unexpected options.  One suggested I apply to be an electrician.  Uh, ok.  I know how to turn lights on and off but that’s the extent of my knowledge in that field.  Another suggested I apply to be an auto technician.  Yeah, that’s a good one.  I own a car.  How’s that for being qualified?  Then there was the application to be an environmental quality specialist.  Part of those duties included drafting environmental reports regarding the weather. I’ll tell you something about the weather.  Sunshine = smiley face, everything else = frowny face.  That’s my official report and I’d draw it out in crayon.  But the last one was by far my favorite.  Apparently I’m a good match to be a pipe welder.  A pipe welder??  What is this, Flashdance?   Maybe I should take another look at my profile.  Or maybe they know something I don’t…

*So I realize no one is welding in this video but Ted dumping water on his head cracks me up.  Besides, I think you get the point.
