I learned that I am a more of a Social person who is also known as “the helper.” Iam very verbal. I love to express myself very well. I do get along when I’m ingroups with others. I love to solve problems when it comes to others. I always findmyself offering my help because I want to solve everything.Yes I was only interested in Hospitalist, lawyer and principal job offers. I think Iwould be very good at any of those three jobs. Yes I researched them all. Thosepositions are very demanding positions that I can see myself working without anyproblems. I like challenging jobs.I looked up the Surgical Technician career. I found out that their job is very busythey make an ok salary but they are really going to be on their feet a lot assistingdoctors during surgeries. They will basically be the doctor’s right hand man so tosay in the operation room. They too have to hold equipment feel around in apatient’s body when asked to by the doctor. It’s a very interesting job.I didn’t check out any of the websites but I did learn a lot about my personalityand how I am also fit for jobs that I never even considered looking into. Ifanything were to change with me going to school to be a doctor I would considertrying out of the careers that were picked for me to work on this project. All threeoptions make nice salaries.My educational Career goal is to finish the RN program in spring 2013 graduate,then transfer to Nova and Graduate from the PA program graduate with mybachelors and continue my education in medical school. Finally I will graduatefrom medical school and specialize in the orthopedic field. This project didn’tmake me change my current plans, but if something was to change in my plan andI’m unable to do what I planned then yes I would definitely look into one of thethree career choices from this project.
