Hi Khalil,

Perhaps look into education as a career for yourself. It certainly takes a creative and friendly person to teach others. Additionally, start thinking about the things you do not like to do. This will help you narrow down the fields that you may not enjoy. I recommend searching for an online career assessment test to help you narrow down your search.

Hi Khalil,

It looks like you could engage in a career in the advertising industry. The sector requires a lot of creativity and be a "people's person" to understand what people are looking for in a product. a brand or an organization. The job also requires to work in teams, which can be great if you like to meet new people and interact with them.

Carmen recommends the following next steps:

  • I'd suggest to look into Medium.com about blog posts from people in this industry share about their job.
  • I'd also suggest to go on website such as Adage and watch at campaigns to see if some inspire you and if you'd like to be part of a team creating such content.
  • Finally I4d suggest contacting on LinkedIn professionals that are in this field and ask them for a coffee, quick chat over Skype to have a discussion about your perception of the job vs reality.

Hello,

Being creative and friendly all wonderful traits that will help you in the career of your choice. Also remember that between now and the time you graduate from college your choices may change. The most important thing for you to do now is to start looking at careers that interest you , giving room for change.

When I was your age I changed my mind many times before I decided what to do. It's very important that you do what you like and not what other people want you to do.

Since it looks as though you like to be among people I would be sure to view careers that involve other people and not careers where you work on your own . I hope this gives you some guidance.

Connie recommends the following next steps:

  • Visit your local library and review the career section
  • Pay close attention of the things you like to do best and see if these things can be incorporated into a job

Hi Khalil, I'm sorry that you didn't find the information helpful. Perhaps you can be more detailed in stating your "Creative" strengths. What exactly are you creative in doing? Please list everything specifically. Also, you didn't state any of your hobbies. What are they? Also when you hang out with your friends, what do you do together?
