I just did an “Ideal Career” test on Emode. Maybe it has something to do with being made redundant in May this year! OK, so I’ve been managing to make ends meet, but it’s not the same as having a full time job and a guaranteed pay cheque at the end of every month!

“As an Analytical type, you don’t want to be limited by established rules and regulations. Your inquisitive nature demands that you sometimes question authority.

Your right job doesn’t have to be about self-expression, but it needs to be a job you can be proud of.
