And the only two jobs that I am entertaining seriously are about as random as possible. The first is (seriously) the Navy. I have never really thought about joining the military before, but the Civil Engineer Corp has a lot of good stuff going for it (there is also the nuclear engineering route, but I am ~6'5" and don't like hitting my head on stuff). Basically, if you don't come out of there with a Professional Engineering license, well, you'd be a pathetic excuse for a human being. You work on many different projects and pick up quite a varied experience. Once you get out, you would have a PE and be ready to rock wherever you wanted to live. Downsides: I don't like push-ups. You would have to live on the coast, i.e., San Diego, which would violate my #5 Rule Of Life: "NEVER SET FOOT IN CALIFORNIA."
The second was a job as a maintenance engineer with Peabody Energy, probably in and around Gillette, WY at a coal mine. I am not terribly interested in what I would be doing, but WY would be a great place to live.
Coal mining or the Navy? Not everyday you get presented with that choice.
I still have hopes of finding more possibilities through some professors, and I really ought to take the GRE just in case I decide on grad school. All in all it was a long, not terribly hopeful day, but at least I got a free taco dinner out of it from one of the meetings. That's my #4 Rule Of Life: "NEVER PASS UP A FREE MEAL."
