Hi Emily!

Excellent question. Like yourself, I love organizing. The best job would be something in Account Management or Project Management. You HAVE to be organized to manage people and projects, but it's a fun role. The best part of those roles is that you can be an AM/PM in any field. I just took the travel path to get the benefits of travel!

Good Luck Emily! Simone

Hi there Emily,


A great question! There are so many career and academic choices that would lend themselves well to someone with good organizing skills. The first thing that came to mind for me is business administration or public administration. Both are fiends were a highly skilled organizer could really apply their skills.


Another option is to consider choosing a major which you find fascinating and then simply get a professional certification in organizing (yes...they have have :)). Check out the sites below for some additional thoughts. Project management professionals are quite high in demand, and it takes an organizer to really excel in the field.


Let me know if you have additional questions!
