About This Quiz

You're going to want to channel your inner Elizabethan era for this quiz! If you were alive back in old Will Shakespeare's days, what job would you have held? Would you have served the royals, or would have served the people? After we learn more about your ideal job, and a little about the position you hold now, we'll be able to tell what you would have done back then. 

From being an apothecarist to a painter, Elizabethan jobs were as varied as today. While they didn't have the wonder of technology like we have, the skills you possess will undoubtedly cross over. Things like work ethic, endurance, and pleasing your audience never go out of style. Fill us in on the way you approach your job, what you really think of your coworkers, and what you would like to do in the future, and your Shakespearean-era job title will become clear. 

Will it be the job of your dreams or do you fear you will be Chief Chamberpot Washer? Let's examine what you have to offer an employer, and we'll pair you with the Shakespearean job you would have done well. Aren't you curious what it is? We are!
