I agree with my results on all three of the career plan building activities. I know that I have interest very much in these categories. I believe that the need to be an expert comes from my days in the military, where I was taught that one must be a subject matter expert in field. Also, goes hand in hand with the need to be in a leadership role as well. I think if one has an call to be in a leadership role they don’t truly discover it until they are given that chance to shine. My competencies activity is also something I agree with, and they complement my work culture results as well as my interest activity results. I have always thought of myself as being innovative; try to think outside of the box. Additionally, having high marks in entrepreneurial thinking is something that I am happy about since I want to operate my own business. Also feel like the career matches list seem like such a wide spectrum of jobs, I wish it was a little more specific. But, according to my career matches I can do almost anything I apply myself to. I did see what I want to do on the list (business owner). One category I was surprised to see and I never thought about was seeing realistic. I knew I like to work with my hands but I never thought of making a career of it. I am very fond of this idea, because it’s a new idea and foreign.
After conducting a job search on my matches, I looked up civil engineering because it was one of the matches. I reviewed the requirements and job duties, the job duties sound very intriguing. I also looked up a couple of jobs in the science field (plant science) I have always been interested in science since an early age. Doing almost anything sciences related requires lots of education, not to mention competition seems to be very stiff. Regardless of any of the jobs that I have looked up I feel like I can do anything I put my mind to, all that is required is 100% effort.
