  1. 1. By: Bridget Fallon
  2. 2. A person cannot be described in one word, phrase, paragraph or even an entire novel. People develop differently and continue to change in many ways through the course of their lives. With each coming year I have acquired many skillsand personality traits. I was not born with the personality Iposses today. Today I am a very lively, happy, strong, diligent,artistic, funny, creative and imaginative person. I havealways looked at things differently than other people. Manypeople follow trends or leaders but I have always beenindependent and thought on my own. Some of my skills consist of writing, drawing, painting,and reading, organizing, and solving problems. I am aunique person and I am confident in my skills.
  3. 3. Lifestyle Choices Learning StylesI have many goals for my future including some My learning styles are visual, auditory and short term goals and some long term goals. kinesthetic or tactile. Usually a person will only prefer one of these styles of learning butShort Term Goals: I use each one to learn.In a year I hope to have a GPA of a 4.0 or higher When I say that I am a visual learner, it means that and be the editor of Penumbra. I would also I learn by making mental images and that I like to have an internship and work at the like to use diagrams or illustration to reinforce local animal shelter.

Being an auditory learner means that listening and participating in discussions help me to furtherLong Term Goals: educate myself.I hope that in five years I will be in college and working part-time. Hopefully I have studied Finally being a tactile or kinesthetic learner means abroad at least once by then and I would like that by doing hands-on activities and to be living away from home in a dorm with performing multiple tasks assist me in my my own car.

Some careers that are associated with these threeIn ten years I would like to have acquired a styles of learning are a graphic designer for masters degree and have become fluent in visual learning, a translator for auditory at least three languages other than English. learning and an actor for tactile learning.
  4. 4. Work Values Unique QualitiesTwo work values that are important to Considerate me are independence and achievement. Imaginative NeatIndependence is something that I have always cherished. Since I was young I have done most things independently. This does not mean Studious Bold that I cannot get along with others but that I prefer and work best when I am.. I am alone. I will need to look for jobs that will allow me to work and make decisions on my own. Some Light-hearted Honest careers that would allow me to continue to value independence are foreign language teachers and animal trainers. Responsible Independent Hard-working
  5. 5. These are my foundation building blocks that will serve as the foundation for my career. These traits and skills will help me in my future careers.Being a good listener means that I am good at taking notes and visualizing what I hear.Thinking creatively means that I use my imagination quite a lot, I try new methods when I do something, and I have different points of view.Having good self-management means that I like to make future goals and schedules for myself.In the future I hope to develop more foundation building blocks such as negotiation, decision-making, and leadership.
  6. 6. My Holland Code is: AISThis means that I am mainly artistic, I like to investigate and I am a social type.
  7. 7. As a translator you must interpret written, oral, or sign language text into another language for others. Being a translator requires self-expression and it involves working with forms. A translator must proofread, edit, and revise translated materials. They also must adapt translations to students’ specific grade levels. You need to be able to talk to others to convey information efficiently and you must be able to adjust actions in relations to others’ actions. Most occupations require a four-year bachelor’s degree but some do not. In New York, translators are paid $37,700 per year at first but more experienced translators are paid $69,580 per year.This occupation matches my code because with the code AIS it means that I am social and I like to investigate. Becoming a translator means I would have to investigate to learn new languages and be social to communicate those languages well with others.
  8. 8. A creative writer creates original written works for publication or performance. Being a creative writer is an artistic occupation and involves working with forms. A creative writer must write fiction or nonfiction prose such as stories or novels and must develop factors such as themes, plots, and characterizations. You must have a good knowledge of the English language, knowledge of communication and media production, and knowledge of different philosophical systems and religions. In order to become a successful writer you should acquire a four-year bachelor’s degree but it isn’t essential.This occupation matches AIS because it in order to be a successful writer you must investigate different subjects, be artistic, and socialize with different types of audiences.
  9. 9. A Foreign Language Teacher must teach courses in a language or several languages other than English. A foreign language teacher is a social occupation and involves working, communicating, and teaching people. A foreign language teacher must evaluate students’ class work, assignments, and papers. You should be able to instruct and speak well in front of others In order to become a foreign language teacher you acquire a bachelor’s degree or a higher level degree. A foreign language teacher in New York is paid $40,740 per year but the pay increases with experience to $94,370 per year.This job matches mainly the social part of my Holland code because each day I would need to interact with students and other teachers. It matches the I in my code because in order to learn languages fully I would need to learn more about culture. Language is very artistic as well.
  10. 10. People with blue Interests like job responsibilities and occupations that involve creative, humanistic, thoughtful, and quiet types of activities. Blue Interests include abstracting, theorizing, designing, writing, reflecting, and originating, which often lead to work in editing, teaching, composing, inventing, mediating, clergy, and writing. People with yellow styles perform their job responsibilities in a manner that is orderly and planned to meet a known schedule. They prefer to work where things get done with a minimum of interpretation and unexpected change. People with a yellow style tend to be orderly, cautious, structured, loyal, systematic, solitary, methodical, and organized, and usually thrive in a research-oriented, predictable, established, controlled, measurable, orderly environment. You will want to choose a work environment or career path in which your style is welcomed and produces results.(via. princetonreview.com)
  11. 11.  Writers usually research a certain topic in order to develop their work more thoroughly. They can work from home or in an office and most writers rather write about personal topics but a lot of more advanced writers are assigned different topics by editors. Writers work on drafts or manuscripts and send them to their editors to check for errors or to see if revisions are needed. Currently there are more writers than there are assignments. Writers usually always depend on other sources of income to support themselves. There are likely going to be more jobs in commercial writing because commercial venues are always expanding. Electronic publishing has increased and even more jobs will appear for writers in the future. There are many majors that could come in handy for a writer. Such as, philosophy, English, American literature, creative writing, government, ethnic studies, and countless more.
  12. 12.  Photographers take pictures of many subjects including people, animals, landscape, and events. They try to capture and induce mood and feeling. Photography is artistic and technical. Photography is needed in many areas such as entertainment, marketing, or research. It is clear that there will constantly be a need for skilled and practiced photographers. There are numerous majors that would be useful for someone fascinated by photography. Such as, photography, radio and television, film, journalism, illustration, photojournalism, and more.
  13. 13.  An artist makes works of art, typically alone. Artists strive to convey a certain meaning or vision in their work. Art has been a great part of culture and always will be. In the future artists will only have to worry about funding. Many fresh forms of art have been appearing but the traditional forms will always linger. The potential for art is always uncertain because no one can actually know how much support artists will gain. Some majors associated art are ceramics, film, crafts, art history, painting, drawing, graphic design, music and many more.
