Simeon’s Answer

If you want to do business, but don't like numbers, I would suggest looking into marketing classes in college, possibly even as a major. It's a very stable job market and they're in high demand. Plus, a lot of marketing classes are about learning to communicate better to an audience. Also, there should be plenty of language and communication classes in colleges that can help with communication skills, but those are not as helpful as joining a student organization. When you are talking about a topic you're really invested in with others in a group or club, you will be much more invested in communicating successfully than if it's just for an assignment about a generic topic. That kind of practice is best for real communication skills.

Thank you very much for your answer! It helps a lot☺️ Ina L.

Hi Ina!

I would suggest you look into programs in schools of business. Most universities offer different paths within the business track, and you can choose courses that fit what you want to do in the future. Careers in marketing, consulting, and technology all stem from business schools. Most of them pay well upon graduation and you can take your career in a number of different ways once you get some experience. If you don't like numbers, I would stray away from finance paths. Google some schools you want to apply to, and the programs they offer.

Hope this helps :)

Good Morning Ina.

How are you? I would suggest taking business courses and find out what area of business you want to specialize in.

To assist you with your communication skills, I would suggest the following courses

1) English as a Second Language

2) Interpersonal Communication

Also, look into Toastmasters International. It is an organization that will assist you with enhancing your public speaking, communication and presentation skills.

Hope that helps
