However, the key to finding that ideal role is much more simple than you would think – it’s taking your personality into account. This may sound strange, but finding that perfect career isn’t just about your passions and interests, but also about who you are as a person. Or, at least, it should be. You see, each career suits certain types of people because of the work that has to be done.

With that in mind, below are some career suggestions based on personality.

Careers that are ideal for caring people

A medical role is often seen as being ideal for caring people. Being a nurse or doctor’s assistant isn’t just about having the training, it’s also about having the right personality. You need to be a people person and someone who cares deeply about others. Otherwise, a career in the medical professional most probably won’t work out.

If you’re someone who is loving and caring, working with children could be a good fit for you. This could be as a childminder, nursery nurse or teacher, or any other role that allows you to work with children. Kids need a lot of love and support, so if you’re going to work with them, you need to have a certain nature. To find out about the qualifications that you’ll need, take the time to do your research.

Jobs that are perfect for creative people

Do you have a creative streak? Then perhaps a role working in media could be ideal for you. Whether you’re a skilled writer or a passionate photographer, this could be the ideal role for you. A lot of people make the mistake of thinking that working in the media industry is about being highly academic, but that’s not the case. Being creative is much more important.

How about working in illustration? One of the only areas of art that’s guaranteed to pay well is illustration. So if you’re skilled with a pen and paper, train in illustration and become an illustrator. From books and newspapers to online illustration, there are various areas that you could go into.

Roles that are a good fit for thinkers

Are you a deep thinker? Then perhaps a role working in research could be perfect for you. The great thing about this is that you can choose the area of research based on your passions. Being a researcher is about having the mind to think of the unthinkable and be open to new things. Something that not everyone has the ability to do.

Another great role for people who love to think is story writing. This may sound like a better fit for people who are creative, but that’s not the case. You see, to be able to write a book you need to have the mind to come up with an in-depth and unique storyline. Just look at the Harry Potter series, to come up with that you would need the most amazing and open mind.

So there you have it, career ideas that are a good fit for different people and personalities.
