Which Career Is Best for Your Personality?


With everyone constantly asking you what you want to do with your life (your family, your friends, your professors and maybe even your school’s career counselor), it can be beyond stressful to figure out which career path will make you happy. What is it that you really want, collegiettes? And what’s the best path for you? Every collegiette’s path to success is unique. When you’re determining your own roadmap to the future, knowing which career fits your personality type can be crucial. Check out HC’s tips for figuring out what you want to do and how to make it happen!

For the best listener: Counseling

Are you the friend with whom everyone wants to talk when they’ve had a bad day at the office or a messy break-up? Do you offer the most levelheaded, clear advice to the people you love? You’re the best listener that everyone leans on when they need a strong shoulder. If this sounds like you, consider a career in counseling!

According to Adrienne Wells, former assistant director for experiential education at the University of Florida and current Tribridge Academy Coordinator in Tampa, individuals who are “calm, cool and good listener[s]” are exactly the kind of people who would make amazing counselors. With an associate degree, a fast-track diploma and a certificate, all available from ICDC College®, you’ll satisfy your need to help other people lead healthier, happier, more productive lives. You’ll learn about the basics of substance abuse addiction counseling and ways to help patients recover. ICDC can help you turn your penchant for advice into a career where you can make a permanent impact in others’ lives—plus, getting paid to put those listening skills to good use is a pretty good deal!

For the wellness guru: Healthcare

Are you always researching the best healthy recipes or the newest fitness craze? Do you love to get active with your family and encourage healthy eating habits with your friends at dinner (in a non-annoying way, of course)? If so, you would love a career in healthcare, and ICDC can help you get there. Whether you want to work in the dental field, physical therapy or healthcare management, ICDC has the certificate, fast-track diploma, or associate degree for you.

If you’re looking to explore something less traditional, Wells recommends researching Doula, “individuals who work alongside an expecting mother.” Whether you’re interested in something atypical or more mainstream, the healthcare industry is growing fast, and you’ll want to get all of the tools you need to succeed!

For the political junkie: Homeland Security

Do you listen to the news during your morning commute? Are you always eager to read the latest editorials and opinion pieces on the world political sphere? If so, you’ll probably be the perfect fit for a career in homeland security! Wells points out that this industry is a great fit for collegiettes who are seeking a “fast-paced and interesting” career involving ever-changing politics.

If you’re looking for this type of work environment in which you can learn about important real-world problems involving the protection of the U.S., its people, and its information (cue Homeland montage and marathon), these courses will be interesting and useful for you. Whether you want to work in private security or government services, you can learn all you need to know about the field before entering the workforce!

For the public speaker: Legal

Have you always been the star of the school play? Do you love to take the stage in debates and arguments, determined to prove your point with flare and conviction? If you’re a collegiette who’s confident in her abilities in public speaking and critical thinking, you will love a career in the legal sphere!

“In law, there’s a lot of background work, but there’s also a lot of working in front of others,” says Wells. ICDC College®, which offers accredited online programs and live classes, could be the best place to build up those legal skills while you show off your public speaking chops. ICDC offers a Paralegal Certificate where you’ll get to study case law, business law, family law and legal office procedures. Apply to get on track for your dream career in the legal sphere, from résumé to interview. You’re so ready to have all eyes on you as you make waves in the courtroom!

For the artistic one: Graphics and Web Design

Do you love to visit museums and analyze the design of billboards? Are you always doodling in your notepad or finding the websites with the coolest layouts? If so, you may be the perfect candidate for a certificate or fast-track diploma in graphics and web design! In which case, no matter what you’re studying now, you shouldn’t be afraid to make your doodling a day job and look into training opportunities with ICDC, wherever you are!

“With graphic design, web design and advertising,” Wells says, “a lot of that is about visuals and less about words. So that would be a very good fit for the artistic type.” While web design may seem like a niche field, Wells points out that graphic and web design skills are valuable in a variety of careers, including “graphic advertising, interior design, or even real estate!” Expect to learn Microsoft Office® and Adobe® suites, plus professional applications of design. You’ll learn how to make the most amazing websites and use your creative talents in your profession, whatever that may be!

Choose the career that you really want, no matter where you’re at today! ICDC College® can put you on the fast track to a diploma or associate degree, whether you dream of a career in graphic design, homeland security, business management or more.
