This might possibly be true – frightening but true. My son needed his resume updated for summer employment and asked me to type it for him. I found the information I needed in his Grade 12 Graduation Portfolio – something you must complete before leaving school.
I see that based on his completition of a survey which is supposed to identify your strengths and interests he is most suited for the following jobs:
Guide Dog Trainer – he does like dogs
Deminer – didn't know what this was so had to look it up …. are you ready? It's someone who removes land or naval mines – sounds like fun!
Bike Mechanic – is there a market for this? at least you won't get blown up
Smokejumper - had to look this up too - it's a wildland firefighter that parachutes into a remote area to combat wildfires – hmmm doesn't sound dangerous at all!
Courier/Messenger – wouldn't want to aim too high!
Professional Athlete – this sounds easy!
and my personal favourite……Aggressive Inline Skater! I'm not kidding – this is apparently a career and in the top 20 chosen specifically for him! Is there such a career as a Passive Inline Skater?
Luckily he has decided to buck the "system" and enroll in a Phys Ed (or Criminology) program at College – perhaps he could be a bike riding parole officer? Or a Police Dog trainer? Or a Politician – we always told him he'd be a good lawyer – likes to win an argument (gee I wonder where he could possibly have gotten this trait from! Hmmm)
Just my laugh for the day (not laughing at Ian just this crazy survey – is this supposed to motivate kids these days?)
