Rewarding Careers for Extroverts
If you live for communication and love helping people, you might want to choose a career that will keep you happy and connected with others. Working from home might not be for you if you love being around others and having a conversation while typing away, but there are a few careers listed below you might want to consider.
1. Family Therapist
You can help individuals and families solve their personal and mental health issues and support kids if you become a family therapist. There are several courses available to train for this job full time or part time. You should check out the CHRISTIAN PSYCHOLOGY DEGREE online course to find out more about the time commitments and the entry requirements. You can work in a local community center or a charity after you graduate.
2. Youth Support Worker
One of the best career choices for Millennials is working with young people. You will be close to young people in age, and understand them much better than older support workers. You will know the challenges they are facing and connect with them easier. You will need some kind of psychology and sociology training, but most or the roles offer great graduate schemes and on site tuition, so you can get started straight away.
3. Business Coach
To help other Millennials succeed and become financially independent without having to rely on a job, you could also become a business coach. Business coaches help people realize their potential and discover their value and talent that will be useful when setting up a business. You can get an online MBA or a lower level certificate to get started and get a job at a local business center or even set up your own business.
4. Lead Generation Expert
With the increasing number of people going into business, you will be able to offer a service that every company and entrepreneur needs: generating leads. Most startups struggle with getting noticed and acquiring their first customers online and offline. If you are an extrovert, you can become a professional lead generation expert and deliver value for your clients. If you get really good at your job, the sky’s the limit when it comes to your income.
If your extrovert traits often land you in the middle of arguments and you have experience sorting out disagreements and negotiating, you can also become a mediator. You might work in family or business court and help people avoid lengthy court cases and expensive legal fees. You will need a lot of empathy and advanced communication skills, but you can potentially support hundreds of people each month.
If you are an extrovert Millennial, you might be searching for ways to put your skills and special talent in good use. Consider the above career choices if you enjoy talking to people, helping them, and want a rewarding and versatile job for life. Whether you are interested in mediation, coaching, or psychology, you can find a suitable job or business opportunity.
