If there is one thing that pretty much all of us have to do over this life of ours, is get a job. If you aren't one of those people that have to get a job and figure out how to make a living, please stop reading right now, as the rest of this not only won't apply to you, but it also makes the rest of us that do have to work kind of mad. People usually start thinking about what kind of job they should have when they are just a little kid, but for many of us, it doesn't stop there. A lot of people always wonder whether they picked the right job.
And it isn't all about money. A landscaper might be building a stone wall on a hot day and wishing he had stayed in school and become a lawyer, so he didn't have to work so hard. A lawyer might be driving by in his car wishing that he was working outside on such a beautiful day, instead of having to do something so stressful. What about you? Is your job right for you? Take this quiz and find out. Just make sure you do it at home, or on your lunch break or something, or you might need to find your dream job for real.
