I need to know whether your job and your education match up

Where "Education" means a degree or some other specific higher-level qualification. Having taken French A-levels and now working in France doesn't count. If your life doesn't fit into nice, neat categories then leave a comment :->

I would say I have...

a career
66(58.9%)
a job
36(32.1%)
SEIWEIC
10(8.9%)

My current job is related to my education

Yes
52(46.8%)
No
45(40.5%)
SEIWEIC
14(12.6%)

When I was at school I deliberately took specific classes so that I would be able to eventually get a specific job

Yes, and I got it, and still work in that job (or a closely related one)
25(22.3%)
Yes, and I got it, but no longer work in that job.
11(9.8%)
No
61(54.5%)
SEIWEIC
15(13.4%)

I first started thinking about what kind of career I wanted when I was

Under 5 (I wanted to ride fire-trucks, and now I do!)
5(4.4%)
6-10 (Who didn't play at being The Fat Controller when playing with trains?)
14(12.3%)
11-13 (If you don't plan before choosing your GCSEs then you're doomed!)
19(16.7%)
14-16 (If you don't plan before choosing your A-Levels then you're doomed!)
12(10.5%)
17-18 (If you don't plan before going to university then you're doomed!)
6(5.3%)
19-22 (I took a few courses, and worked out what I wanted to do for a job)
9(7.9%)
23-25 (I graduated, tried a few things, and found an area I wanted to work in)
11(9.6%)
26-30 (I drifted a bit after uni, but then worked out what I wanted to do)
4(3.5%)
31+ (I drifted a _lot_, but then found something that suited me)
4(3.5%)
I've been meaning to start thinking about careers. Any day now...
