New Job, Who Dis?
It’s been a difficult week for those who work in the arts, as Rishi Sunak has essentially told them to sack it all off and start again on a new career path. Which is pretty outrageous, and we here at ZAK just want to assure all the work-shy, unemployed, languishing musicians and artists out there that we are 100% on their side and support their right to never get a proper job. Kidding, obviously. But guitarists and co need not fret, as they haven’t been left completely high and dry. All those who have spent their entire lives honing their craft will be given a helping hand in working out what they should re-train as, thanks to this official government questionnaire. No, really – I thought this was a spoof, but it’s a legit government site. Basically, you spend 5 minutes answering rudimentary personality questions, and lo and behold, your obvious career path reveals itself. I gave it a go myself, and as it turns out, I should quit my job and re-train as… An actor. Oh cool, so I should be pursuing a career in the arts – you couldn’t make this up. Although to be fair, I did have a brief career as a child actor when I gave my Bottom in A Midsummer Night’s Dream, so maybe it’s worth rekindling.Do the Questionnaire
