Career Horoscopes: Netflix Edition

What you binge watch on Netflix says a lot about your future career…



You love any show with police chases, dramatic political backstabbing, or increasingly intense background music.  If you’ve ever binge-watched Law and Order or debated your friends about the Underwood’s/Clinton’s comparison you definitely fall into this category.  Consider careers in government, international affairs, or law – high stakes political endeavors are totally your thing.



You’re all about a good tug on the heartstrings and you love putting good vibes out into the world.  You’ve never had a bad day that Rory and Lorelai’s banter or the Glee version of Don’t Stop Believin’ can’t fix.  If you find that your Netflix shows of choice tend more towards the heartwarming side, you would be a perfect fit for careers in education, non-profit, or human services.



You thrive in the spotlight and are constantly on the go.  You’re passion for sports and entertainment is unparalleled, and this carries into your Netflix binge choices as well.  If you’re known for quoting The League way too often or for ranting about Coach Taylor’s outstanding moral fiber, you might be interested in careers in sports, arts, or entertainment industries.



Calling all critical thinkers!  You love putting your problem solving skills to the test, so you appreciate a good mystery in your Netflix show of choice.  If you were swept up in the sci-fi thrill of Stranger Things or pride yourself on beating the Criminal Minds detectives to cracking the case, then you definitely fall into this category.  Your analytical thinking skills would serve you well in careers in technology, engineering, or the physical sciences.



You’re extroverted and outgoing (some might even say quirky), so your go-to shows should be no less fun!  If you can relate all too well to every Liz Lemon “blerg” or find yourself admiring Jess’s eccentric fashion choices on New Girl, then you have a unique creativity and comedic sense-of-self that could help you go far in careers in marketing, media, communications, or advertising.



Cue The Fray’s “How to Save a Life.”  You’ve always been passionate about helping others, which has led you to consider careers in the health professions and life sciences.  As a result, you fill your Netflix queue with shows to help you prepare for the role.   Here’s hoping McDreamy’s exist at every hospital!



You are fascinated with shows where the characters are motivated by money.  Maybe you were hooked on Walter White’s greed-driven meth-making obsession or you swooned when Chuck Bass flew all the way to Paris to win Blair over with her favorite macaroons.  Careers in finance, consulting, or accounting might be right up your alley because you’d be critically analyzing and interpreting real financial situations.
