I know a person with a very highly developed skill set and I want to
help her find the job the job of her dreams and at least take a shot
at it.  She's amazing at carrying out split-second logical operations
(she could beat a savant child at minesweeper, for instance- expert in
30 seconds), she excels at pattern-recognition and related skill sets.
 My question is, can anyone come up with a few job-titles and/or
organizations that would make use of such skills?  A bonus would be a
website for such jobs.

she has plenty of social skills, don't be misled by the savant joke.
There is no answer at this time.

At the U.S. Mint, they have people whose job it is to inspect the
money as it comes off the press. She would be good at spotting
something that doesn't fit in. I imagine an kind of quality control at
a factory - although maybe not so challenging. I have also seen a job
where people read the postal code on hand-addressed envelopes and type
it into a computer..  Lots of things art related as she can recognize
patterns I assume she could see what is asthetically pleaseing as well
- laying tile patterns, brick laying etc

I would angle her towards the post of PA to a highly successful businessman.
