Kathy’s Answer

Hi Amira!

The way you feel is totally normal and understandable. I would recommend taking an online survey to help you think of some ideas first, and then go based off of those ideas by trying different career paths out. To do so, you can get an internship to gain some experience. You can also have an informational interview with someone who is in the career you're interested in to ask them what it's like.

Louise’s Answer

There are a lot of different directions you could go in with your skills. I agree with the above suggestions and would add:

Travel Agent: advice and being a people person would be assets when helping to plan someone's vacation
Tour Guide: advice, being a people person, and athleticism would help when showing people around and being on your feet a lot
Public Relations: advice and being a people person would be assets, and you could also do PR for an athletic-related company/organization
Sport Journalist: being a people person and athletic would help if you're interviewing sports figures
Advice Columnist: being a people person and giving advice are huge assets for this job

There are many more options beyond these. You can use everyone's suggestions as a jumping off point to do research, reach out to anyone you might know in the field and see if you can get internship experience.

Anel’s Answer

Hi Amira,

I would also recommend a career in counseling, teaching or education. You can utilize your athletic skills and work as a sports coach and provide guidance to your students. Another great option is to explore careers in sports medicine. You can utilize your skills by working as a physical therapist, sports medicine physician, Clinical Exercise Physiologist, or an athletic trainer.

You can also utilize the California Career Zone website to help you explore industry sectors, fields of study, colleges and different occupations. You can also take a quick assessment to see what careers you might be interested in doing. The website is free to use and really provides good insight to what you may want to do as a career.

Gloria’s Answer

Hi amira,

There are a wide variety of jobs out there for people who like to interact with other people. Your goal should be to find something that you enjoy doing as well. When you give advice, what do you give advice about? I think that your real strength would be using that positive attitude and help others be more positive. Maybe your focus can be on helping others get into positive mindsets. I think Psychology would be a great field. Teaching would be another great area, teaching something that you really enjoy sharing. The best teachers I have ever had are those who are passionate about a subject and are flexible enough to change their teaching style to suit the needs of their students. That takes a great deal of skill to be able to see how and why a person is struggling and changing how you interact with them to make an impact.

Good luck in your career search. I think that whatever you find that helps people will be very rewarding.

Simeon’s Answer

I could see you enjoying being a physical trainer or a nutritionist. The first talks to people about their bodies and how to improve or recover physically. The second helps people find diets and routines that will work best for their bodies and personal goals.

James Constantine’s Answer

Dear Amira,

Based on your description, you seem to have a friendly and outgoing personality, enjoy being around people, and have a strong athletic ability. Here are some career paths that might align with your interests and skills:

Social Worker: Social workers help individuals, families, and communities improve their well-being. They listen to people’s concerns, provide advice and support, and connect them with resources. Your people skills and energy would be valuable in this role.

Counselor or Therapist: Similar to social workers, counselors, and therapists help people deal with personal challenges by providing guidance and support. They may work in schools, mental health clinics, or private practice. Your ability to give advice and positive energy could make a difference in someone’s life.

Physical Therapist: Physical therapists help people regain mobility and manage pain through exercise, massage, and other treatments. Your athletic ability could be an asset in this field as you may need to demonstrate exercises or techniques to patients.

Coach (Sports or Personal): Coaches help individuals improve their skills and reach their goals through training and guidance. Sports coaches focus on physical fitness while personal coaches can focus on various aspects of life such as career development or personal growth. Your energetic personality could motivate others to succeed.

Event Planner: Event planners coordinate various aspects of events such as weddings, conferences, or parties. They need strong communication skills to work with vendors, clients, and attendees. Your love for being in a good environment could make this an enjoyable career for you.

Marketing or Public Relations Specialist: Marketing and public relations specialists promote products, services, or organizations through various channels such as social media, advertising, or events. They need excellent communication skills to create compelling messages that resonate with audiences. Your friendly demeanor could help build relationships with clients or customers.

Teacher: Teachers educate students in various subjects at different levels from elementary school to college. They need strong communication skills to explain concepts clearly and engage students in learning activities. Your love for giving advice could make you an effective teacher who inspires students to reach their potential.

Athletic Trainer: Athletic trainers work with athletes to prevent injuries and manage injuries when they occur through various treatments such as taping, massage, or rehabilitation exercises. Your athletic ability could help you understand the needs of athletes better than someone without that background.

Fitness Instructor: Fitness instructors lead group exercise classes or provide one-on-one training sessions to help people improve their physical fitness through various activities such as yoga, Pilates, or weightlifting. Your energy could motivate participants to push themselves harder during workouts while your friendly demeanor could create a welcoming environment for newcomers to the gym or studio setting. 10.Customer Service

Representative: Customer service representatives interact with customers over the phone or in person to address their concerns or answer questions about products or services offered by a company they represent (either directly employed by the company or working for an outsourced call center). Their primary goal is ensuring customer satisfaction by providing accurate information about products/services while maintaining a positive attitude towards customers.

Human Resources Specialist: Human resources specialists manage employee relations within an organization including recruitment & hiring processes; benefits administration; employee training & development; performance management; labor relations; employee engagement & retention initiatives; salary administration; compliance with employment laws & regulations; employee communications; organizational development & planning; employee assistance programs (EAP); safety programs; compensation analysis & reporting; payroll processing & tax reporting.

Community Health Worker: Community health workers are frontline public health workers who have a deep understanding of the community they serve because they live in that community themselves (or have worked closely with it for a significant period). They are trusted community members who can bridge gaps between communities and healthcare systems by providing culturally competent care coordination services that address social determinants of health (such as housing instability) alongside clinical care.

Recreational Therapist: Recreational therapists use recreational activities as part of treatment programs for individuals dealing with physical injuries, mental health conditions like depression/anxiety disorders/substance abuse issues/developmental disabilities/chronic illnesses/traumatic brain injuries etc., helping them regain functional abilities while improving overall well-being through meaningful engagement in leisure pursuits tailored specifically towards individual needs.

GOD BLESS YOU!
JC.

Rebecca’s Answer

You can start considering career that giving professional advice, e.g. Doctors, Lawyers, Consultants of different industries, etc. There are plenty of careers that you can explore.
Firstly, I think you explore which professional you are interested. You can find more information on that subjects.
You can then take the relevant subjects in your school and subsequently take it as major in the unversity.
At the same time, you can explore any part time or intern opportunities in that industry. This gives you an opportunity for you to determine whether you are really interested in the industry. Sometimes, there is gap between the expectation and real time.
Hope this helps!

Kim’s Answer

Hi Amira
Your mentors have given you some excellent advice. You have a really good sense of what you enjoy and the energy you bring which is a great start. You may also want to consider gaining more insight into your true strengths to enhance your decisions.
Discovering the strengths that come naturally to you will enable you to create a decision-tree of careers that will be a natural (and potentially better) fit for you. There are several assessments that can help you with this process. My favorite is StrengthsFinder, but find one that you are comfortable using. Best wishes to you.

Kim recommends the following next steps:

Research StrengthsFinder and other strengths assessments.
Take the assessment and review the report for reference to your career path.
Retain the report for reference and check back on it as your career path continues.
