The “Big Three” Problem Areas
I find that individuals tend to report three main problem areas: communication, mathematics, and organizational skills. Many of my clients report that they have difficulty communicating, whether through organizing their thoughts or generally are fearful of approaching someone to engage in a casual conversation. Others report that math skills do not come naturally, and that math has hindered their educational advancement. Still others struggle with organization – they prefer to move from task to task in a flexible, spontaneous fashion. Yet these are skills that a cookie-cutter approach to education takes for granted.
What To Do?
The good news is that if you feel likewise bothered by any of these issues, there is a place for you. Assessments like those offered via EPIC Career can show you exactly what career fields are common for individuals of any number of the above personality traits. I strongly believe that we must begin working with our natural talents and strengths, rather than making fruitless comparisons.
What I most love about working with clients is showing them professions that prize their personality traits and wherein others have long reported career success and satisfaction. I then use my background in higher education administration to show them how to navigate colleges and universities toward helping them create a workable plan to achieve their new career goals in a way that fits their life circumstances. If you ever have any doubt about whether a possible career choice is likely to be a strong fit for you in the long term, seek assistance. At EPIC Career, we are here to help.
