Everyone else seems so 'on track' ! I'm like, wandering towards a career...

ha ha - my careers are all over the board! Everyone else who has posted seems to be so on track to their list ; ah well. I've always liked meandering towards a goal. Ok, so I already know I like PR, & photography; directing/managing others to helpful ends *(healthcare, arts, education) - and being outdoors & active, doesn't seem like it all fits in any one career track.

What do you think? I'm doing, somemix of not yet 3, pretty much 5, and also slot way-low 35 on this list as work right now; actually being a Project Manager doesn't seem to be on this list & the job mixes those 3 roles.- it's ok, I like it a lot for now, really. ... but Hey: Forester or Director of Photography or PR work in Music, or Producer...hmhm .. something might be on the horizon *heh* like, in 15 years or something; heh. Well, whatever. Fun quiz. Kinda. Until I saw it &; started thinking about all the cool stuff I am not doing. heh.

1. Director of Photography
or should this be italic?I've been a photo editor & in-charge of 10 phtoosgraphers: but in school/not for pay? I donno- that's dif. I'll leaveit bold.
2. Forester
yes, I have considered sitting in a firetower for the whole summer &/or walking the trails for trail maintenance & other forester jobs: esp. considered it heavily when I lived in Oregon.
3. Director
although I have been a project director - I don't think I've gotten the title,officially - and this is a dumb one- 'cause theater director, project director,etc are so different! oh well
4. Landscape Architect
I would like this job, but would need another degree & the pay is iffy.
5. Association Manager
This is about what I do now/Management in an association - but I'm not the only manager, my focus is process management & new implementations.
6. Desktop Publisher
This is what I planned to do after college, but I got sucked into the world of computer technology;and away from publishing persay.
7.
Interior Designer
I like the idea of this,but again: a degree, not guarantee pay range, and it's not my strongest interest, just one of many.
8.
Exhibit Designer
I did this as an intern for a term of college at a gallery: it was pretty fun/hard to get a job in this though, with any decent pay.
9. Kinesiologist
10. Animator
11.
Nursery / Greenhouse Grower
did this in college too & worked specifically at a Bonsai shop. fun; again,no decent pay.
12. Cartoonist / Comic Illustrator
13. Animal Trainer
14.
Producer
I think I would do well in this, but it's complicated & takes funding & lots of networking. Maybe someday.
15.
Operations Research Analyst
I do this in my current job,too. - it's a percentage of my current work.

if you want to take this career test, which seems to be pretty balanced compared to most career tests I've seen/ you can!
go here:
1. here's the site http://www.careercruising.com/.
[it looks suppperrrr boring & asks for a login -yuck- use this one:]
2. Put in Username: nycareers, Password: landmark.
[then this step's pretty obvious -er,take the test:]
3. Take their "Career Matchmaker" questions.
[and have fun doing it, would ya? heh]
4. Post results
EDIT: I forgot these steps, so I think I'll do them now:
5. Put the careers you have seriously considered in bold
6. Italicize and underline any careers you've had (for the point of interest I'm adding jobs I did as an intern &/or in school)
