Career Path
After setting my career goals in 1.1 of the Careers Exploration worksheet, I was not surprise to see my results. Before I decided to major in business I had originally major in marketing. My career path in the past had been in the marketing field and I knew that I wanted to stay close to that field as possible, but later changed my mind and decided against marketing but to broaden my path to business with emphasis on project management.
My primary career goal came back as a “Marketing Coordinator/Assistant”. I was shocked. I changed my major to business, but my career goals suggest marketing. I don’t see myself going back into this direction; because, I have set other goals for myself to eventually oversee multi-million dollar Government contract projects as a project manger.
In the other possible career goals, project manger ranked 6th, with Market Analysis and Marketing Specialist ranking 2nd and 3rd while rank 4th and 5th were General Manager and Production Manager. It is really disappointing to see Marketing careers rank in the top three than that of any type of management career. But, maybe I can incorporate both marketing and project management together to suffice a better career fit for myself.
