More classic Government megamind work here. We all need to retrain apparently as forget decades of working on what you're good at, you're not viable now.

I got:

1) Hospitality and food. What a brilliant industry to enter right now! Can't wait for that, loads of opportunities.

2) Sales. Er, ok. I think anyone who has met me even fleetingly knows this would not work out very well.

Digging deeper this one came out:

Road traffic accident investigator

Road traffic accident investigators carry out examinations to work out why an accident happened.

You know, I think I might give that one a miss, thanks all the same.

Other people have got hilarious shit like "boxer", why is that even on there :icon_lol:

I'm either going to be a solicitor or a teacher (could be some minor qualification issues there) or work in manufacturing ?

I tried to answer as honestly as possible and apparently "Sport and Leisure" is my #1 thing. Should they have asked my age, weight and physical condition too?
Then "Business & Finance", fuck that
Manufacturing
Uniform or Emergency Services
Creative and Media
Construction and Trades
Science and Research
Law & Legal
Manegerial and finally...
Beauty and Wellbeing

Think I'll stick with the job I have

I then did ultra positive with "Strongly agree/disagree" and got all of my above plus "Teaching & Education" and "Tourism & Travel".

Now for ultra negative...

Sport and Leisure came up first for me!

Then manufacturing, meh.

Then science and research, also meh. Certainly not science :D

Said it's having problems and to try again later. Think they are trying to work out what I'd be good at!

Don't knock it - I answered a couple more questions and it came up with a Brewer.

Did you answer 'Strongly Disagree' on every question?

Boxer, football referee, or generic professional athlete. Zero for three.

Normally with these kinds of quizzes you can manipulate them exactly where you want them to go because it's so obvious what they're trying to get at, but these questions are simultaneously far too vague to be of any use AND there are clear gaps in what they should ask, but don't. Like, you should probably as a bare minimum include a "do you enjoy sports?" question in there, for a start - and like, I have zero interest in physical activities like sport, but if I had to I'd be fine switching up a desk job for something like an electrician that does still mean being on your feet doing a lot each day.

I'm more curious about why this even exists. Is this something people on UC have to fill in? Feels like the kind of patronising shite involved in being unemployed nowadays.
