About This Quiz

These days, they often tell you that you should find a career that gives you an opportunity to explore your passion. This means that if you love to travel, you are somehow expected to find a reasonably well-paid role at an organization that will send you to exactly your favorite places, on the schedule you love. If you like animals, you’re supposed to be a vet. A foodie? You’re surely destined to be a chef. Of course, for many of us, it can seem simply impossible to combine all of our most-loved items into a single job. If you adore your country, you care about conservation, you have a history of arts degree and you want to make a very steady living, where do you go? If you are a daredevil who wants to spend a period in the military but also has a flair for performing, what are your options? What if you want to be in entertainment but you are terrified of freelancing? Where should the devout monarchists who love to travel the world end up? Surely you will have to give up some part of the dream?

Perhaps you don’t! This quiz has four great British institutions for you that should fulfill all, or nearly all, of your fondest desires, and they’ll pay you for the privilege! Click on through to take a step toward your dream job!
