Interest Profiler

Investigative:

Likes activities relating to thinking over physical activity; Search for facts and figure out problems

This describes me perfectly. I have always preferred classes like science and math over PE and sports of any kind.

Social

Like to assist others and promote learning and personal development

I love helping people both physically and emotionally and for that reason I want to become a doctor or anything in the medical field.

IDEAS

  • Medical
  • Science
  • Mathematics

Once again, this is spot on. These three subjects are what I excel at in school

Workplace Importance Locator

Support

Like to be treated fairly and have supervisors who'll back them up. Prefer jobs where they are trained well.

Ex. Nurse, Medical Assistant, Pharmacist

Achievement

Like to see the results of their work and use their strongest abilities. Like to get a feeling of accomplishment from their work.

Ex. Surgeon, Pediatrician, Obstetrician/ Gynecologist

These two things are very important to me right now at my current job and in just about anything I do.

Career Cluster

Health Science

Promote health and wellness or diagnose and treat injuries and disease

STEM

There's several options: Scientific research in labs/the field, planning and design of products/systems, provide support to the scientists, mathematicians, and engineers

While both of these career cluster involve the subjects I love, I would much rather go with the Health Science cluster because I prefer medical science over subjects like math and engineering
