Fatima’s Answer

This is a great question! These strengths can be applied to a variety of jobs, so you should think about what you like to do and are interested in and apply these strengths to that.

Fatima recommends the following next steps:

  • Think about what things interest you and make a list. If you're not sure, do some exercises, like write down what you don't like. One way you can figure this out is if you had to read an article about subject A or subject B, which would you read? If you had to spend 100 hours learning about something, what do you prefer to learn about?
  • Learn more about those areas that interest you and find out what they do in their day-to-day job. Ex. lawyers read and write a lot; salespeople talk to people a lot; programmers work on writing code a lot
  • Pursue what interests you and what you think would make you happy to do everyday of your work life, then apply your fast learning skills to that area. The quicker you learn about the area that interests you, the more ahead you will be on that topic and your passion will show.
