Vidya’s Answer

My younger brother knew exactly what he wanted to do (electrical engineering) while in college, but it took me some time to figure it out. One of the tools I used to help me decide was the Myers-Briggs test. The test results helped me better understand how much I like to work with people, how much structure I like, how much creativity I like, etc. It will probably take 15 minutes to take the test online and you'll get a sense of what careers you will be better suited for. Good luck!

Shelly M.’s Answer

Hi Jonathon,


Like Mia, I would ask, "in what ways are you creative?" I imagine that's a great thing to explore in regard to what your passions and interests are. Creativity often goes hand-in-hand with problem solving (like assisting others and helping), the other things you mentioned. With that skill set, you may want to look into a variety of "helping professions" that also have decent pay scale, such as psychology/therapy, coaching, business consulting, organizational management, organizational psychology, or there are many more options in these fields. Good luck!

Thank you comment icon You could always go with international business or international relations. That is what I want to do, it is said to keep you financially secure. Also, it could help your creative side because of traveling and you could also learn about the culture or art of the countries you go to. Sahara Peterson

Hi Jonathon


You said you are creative. That is a great place to start. You are creative in what? If you find your passion in creativity that's probably where you will find your career.


Hope this helps.

Alex’s Answer

This is a great question - I struggled with very similar interests and goals as a senior in high school.
I think the advice to look at what types of creativity really inspire you the most is a great. Creativity means different things to each of us. And solving business challenges can be as creative as painting murals.
I chose a Liberal Arts school and an education focus when I started and eventually changed to an English major. Both have been very valuable in my current career as an Executive / Business Coach. Several colleges offer programs with industrial & organizational psychology, as well.

There are business advisory jobs that you can get as a part of working for the one of the big four accounting firms like PwC, Deloitte, KPMG, or EY. You give business advice and presentations about how to run their company well.
