Careers rarely develop the way we plan them. Our career path often takes many twists and turns, with particular events, choices and people influencing our direction.

  Paul Shortt
My current role requires a lot of self-motivation as it is largely autonomous, while colleagues are always on hand to give advice and counsel, the decisions as to how to progress cases or deal with problems are ultimately my call.

The job requires someone who is able to work under pressure, is comfortable with public speaking, is confident, assertive and decisive. These are all skills that can be learned with experience, involvement with organisations in school or university that involve managing workload, organising information and debating would all be useful in developing such skill sets.

Creative?
Creative 
Creative people are drawn to careers and activities that enable them to take responsibility for the design, layout or sensory impact of something (visual, auditory etc). They may be drawn towards the traditional artistic pursuits such as painting, sculpture, singing, or music. Or they may show more interest in design, such as architecture, animation, or craft areas, such as pottery and ceramics.

Creative people use their personal understanding of people and the world they live in to guide their work. Creative people like to work in unstructured workplaces, enjoy taking risks and prefer a minimum of routine.
