Wow, you did better than me!

Computer Programmer wasn't even on my list. However, I had Artist, Musician, Cartoonist, and Animator all within the top ten. I think we can safely say the thing is a load of junk.

It has at least some merit in my opinion.

It has obvious limitations, as anyone who has ever heard me fail to sing, seen my crooked line drawings, or otherwise seen me engage in those most noble (and hence fiscally limiting) careers would be sure to agree.

Ah, sorry, that probably didn't make as much sense to those not immersed in the meme culture.

1. Go to Career Cruising, http://www.careercruising.com
2. Put in Username: nycareers and Password: landmark.
3. Take their "Career Matchmaker" questions.
4. Post the top twenty results
5. Put the careers you have seriously considered in bold
