The job search is not going along well. The more advice I take from people, the more choices appear. arggghh. I wonder if you all understand this frustration. Human resource was one of my choices before, but I spoke to a consultant today and she mentioned HR lifespan is up to their 40s. Which means I would only have 10 yrs of good work after getting a degree. argh.
I did a DISC test today, and it rated me as High Compliance and High Steadiness. Kinda means I can’t make decisions without having a ton of information sitting on the desk and my dumb persistence at work regulations and rules makes me a donkey for hard work. Also it says I am a ‘perfectionist’ pattern at work, and ‘prefers to work in a structured environment possibly as a team of experts, craftsmen or professionals. She will seek the opportunity to work alone and also to extend knowledge in order to gain expertise or specialization’. I should be a accountant, engineer or IT according to profile. Kinda of makes me sound like an INTP too.. something I have been pondering about. ‘INTP’ or ‘INFP’? that makes for another post…hmm
looking back at the jobs i considered:
1)events management- needs a high ‘D’ and ‘I’
2)film/tv production- could fit in the technical aspects: lighting grip? editor?
3)human resource- needs a ‘I’ somewhere
4)arts related sales job- needs a ‘I’ somewhere
5)theatre openings- could fit in technical roles, backstage crew
6)governmental admin job- could fit in
7)photographer assistant- could fit in
This is driving me mad. Tech jobs fit me, but the money isn’t going to make me content. Still, makes me wonder non-stop if I should be a techie type. A friend suggested I do writing(tech or something). I know next to nothing about the field.
