Who I thought I was

My personality before this class was the same as it is now. I want to be a photographer. I haven't wanted to go to college for about a year now. I haven't every really wanted to, but it wasn't until recently that I realized that I could achieve my goals without it. I really hate the stigma around not going to college though. I am not lazy, and this will not ruin my life. I am going to be successful.

CIS Results

Interest Profiler

I am honestly not surprised about the results of this. It said that I would like to be in an arts job. I also says that I have low interests in realistic and investigative jobs. I already knew this.


This had almost the same results as the interest profiler. It states that I have a high interest in artistic, entrepreneurial, and social jobs. These are the only jobs that have ever interested me.

Workplace Importance Locator

This is the first set of results that surprised me a little. It says that the 2 most important things to me are achievement and relationships. It says that I value independence under that. But independence is one of the most important things to me.

Career Cluster

Yet again, arts is my highest scoring cluster. I was glad to see education so high up, as I used to want to be a teacher. I was a bit surprised that marketing had such a low score though. That subject does interest me, I just don't know much about it.

What Careers Interest me

The only results that I would want to do for the rest of my life would be arts jobs. I don't have the skills to draw, although I would love to be able to do that for a living. That is why I love photography. I can create these great works of art without having to be able to draw it. I am interested in using photography for various professions, but this is the path I would like to take.

Required Education

Being a portrait photographer doesn't require much education. In fact, most photography jobs require experience over education. A good portfolio goes a long way in this profession. However, a certificate/degree isn't a bad idea. I am considering going to RMSP in Montana, which is a school that creates relationships between aspiring photographers and successful ones. They also teach these photographers everything they need to know.

Schooling Options

RMSP is my most viable option for Photography education. They offer a 3 month intensive for under $5,000. They teach you a lot of what you would need to know. I would also like to consider going to CWI for just business classes. As I have already said, a degree isn't required as long as you have the knowledge and experience.

Company Options

I honestly would like to work for myself. That is why I would like to take Business classes through a community college. Until then, I would like to work for Stone Pixel Solutions in Boise.
