Choosing a Career


Bearing in mind the things you know about yourself so far, work out what the Genie has to offer you in the next exercise.

One day you are walking along the beach and you find a really unusual but very attractive bottle.

As you pick it up and start brushing off the sand, out comes a Genie (who also happens to be a Personnel Officer).

This Genie allows you one wish – to choose the perfect job!

Whatever job you choose from the Genie’s list of 20 vacancies, you will be VERY good at, and everyone will respect you.

You must decide straight away, with no help from anyone, as the Genie’s time is very limited……
