Career Action Plan
After going over all of my options over the past 2 yeas, I have decided that I would like to follow through with a career in small business management and administration. This career is contained in the Business Management and Administration. The duties and of this career include planning, organizing, directing and evaluating business functions that are essential to efficient and productive business operations. A Business Management and Administration career opportunities are available in every sector of the economy, I picked this career because I have always wanted to work under my own conditions and rules. I want to create a less formal work place for my employees. I want to create a business tat gives back to its community and provides more than “good” service. This paper will justify my career choice, detail my qualifications, and analyze my job opportunities versus risks. In tenth grade I took a personality test, my results stating that I was an ENFP (Extroverted, Intuitive, Feeling, Perceiving) personality type. ENFP’s are full of enthusiasm and new ideas. Optimistic, spontaneous, creative, and confident, ENFP’s have original minds and a strong sense of the possible. I agree with theses results because I am a very enthusiastic person, and I do have a strong sense of the possible. With this being true about my personality, these skills and characteristics will help me in my career choice by giving me different views on other people’s situations and aspects on different subject. Every individual has personal strengths and weaknesses that shape his or her life in a positive or negative way. One has to fully understand and be able to use his strengths and weakness in a positive way to succeed in life. Our everyday life, whether at work or at home is affected by how we use our strengths and weakness. We can improve our strengths and work on our weakness to achieve positive goals in life. I was raised in a closed knit family that had always seemed to have one thing go wrong after another, but our emphasis on family values and strong moral ethics shaped my life in a significant way to how I approach everything from work to personal relationships. I learned to respect everybody regardless of his or her beliefs and different views, ethnicity, race, or religion. That helps me at work to listen to my teammates, peers, and coworkers’ different ideas and work with them in a positive way to achieve best results of any situation. I am also ambitious and have strong loyalty to my family and friends. My weaknesses are to be too quick to judge when put on the spot, and when in a situation where I have to make an important decision, I take my time and think over all of the possible outcomes and of either choice before I decide. To make decision I have to look back on life experience and decide from similar situations. Certain job Experiences help with the decision making process. For many people, a first job is a rite of passage. It is one step further than being juvenile and one step closer to the state of independence. When one becomes hired for the first time, there is a sense of joy and excitement for being chosen to exhibit one’s skills but there is also a sense of apprehension because it allows the uncovering uncharted territories, which can frustrate one if it is not overcome. I discovered many things during the time of my employment and with all I had to overcome it has helped me in numerous ways. I was hired to work in Country Meadows Retirement Home as an Evening Dinner Server. I was quite excited to obtain my first occupation. After leaving Country Meadows, I also worked at McDonalds as a register attendant. But from lack of hours I was forced to leave and find suitable employment elsewhere. Finding appropriate work in Redners Warehouse Markets, I work as a front-end associate, primarily operating a cash register. One question that they ask you when you are being interviewed for each of...
