    Got a pass to a local Career Counseling website through a friend who was signed up. Took the online quiz (I love that shit), and got a list of jobs that fit my likes and dislikes as they apply to tasks involved with each job. Another survey then also rated each job as to how good a match my skills are to that job's requirements. As listed, the jobs are:

1. Artist - Very Good Match
2. Website Designer - Good Match
3. Multimedia Developer - Good Match
4. Director of Photography - Good Match
5. Graphic Designer - Very Good Match
6. Writer - Very Good Match
7. Cartoonist - Good Match
8. Video Game Developer - Very Good Match
9. Desktop Publisher - Very Good Match
10. Interior Decorator - Good Match
11. Photographer - Good Match
12. Animator - Good Match
13. Webmaster - Good Match
14. Special Effects Technician - Good Match
15. Computer Animator - Very Good Match
16. Computer Trainer - Good Match
17. Web Developer - Good Match
18. Illustrator - Very Good Match

Yup, unemployed for life. Can't wait.

That is because there are 80 million people entering the workforce, not because those careers exist. ;) There are just fewer jobs to go around in the future.

I think actually that there's possibilities out there - they just don't seem easy right now. I can say that at the age of 43, the obstacles for me to change to a more rewarding "career fit" are equally discouraging. That said, you may be surprised when either something falls in your lap or you make your own luck.
