Career Planning for a Fourteen year-old

My youngest daughter, currently a 9th grade student, recently took some guidance tests to help her focus on careers for which she is deemed to have aptitude. In no particular order, here are her results:

  • Military Officer (no complaints)
  • Graphics designer (ditto)
  • Sailor (chip off the old block)
  • Bartender

Now, for the record I like a good bartender, though as a beer drinker I’m not one to gauge the mixologists’ talents. And, also for the record, bartending is not a career to be disparaged, or shunned. Unless it’s being brought to your fourteen year old daughter as a career choice. I’m not against a broad range of choices, but, bartender?
