Government skills quiz?

    So the government launched its official "what career would you be good at" quiz. According to the Evening Standard it is making everyone Boxers, but I didn't believe that.

    I got best suited for "Creative Work", right after the government said everyone should be getting out of creative work. Oh, and Sports. Apparently there's quite a market for visually impaired Boxers. I guess I stand corrected. (The second offer it gave me was Referee...)

    If you want to see if you can get something insane, the quiz is right here.

    Apparently, I am informed, I should be working in a brewery. I believe I have porridge's results, unless there's suddenly a demand for someone of my years in alcohol manufacturing? I could even obtain up to twenty-five thousand pounds, which I'm sure is enough to live on in my current area. My second option was microbrewer, so it seems I am wasting my retirement as a book reviewer and editor.

    Some of these questions are poorly worded to say the least. I have rarely met anyone who is not motivated by success.
     
  4. The result of my career evaluation is more on creative and media job like copy editor with a starting salary of £22,000 to £40,000. Well it suits my talent in writing which is my passion.

    Don't worry, apparently I should retrain as an actor.

    Even though they are shutting down all the venues as part of the lockdown, so that would make me an unemployed actor, or a struggling one at least. I've heard of suffering for art, but does it have to be government mandated suffering. It's not like they haven't done enough already.
