I took the Holland Interest Inventory first and my top three characteristics that match me are Social, investigative, and Realistic. Starting with the social characteristic, it completely demonstrates me because I love being with people and I have great skills with working with people and helping with problems. I do “prefer to solve problems through feelings and interpersonal manipulation of others. I was at one time drawn to becoming a social worker and I still am in a certain way. I have no idea if that will honestly fit with my career since I’m a person that loves to help other than being an Administrative Medical Assistant.
My next characteristic is Investigative and I don’t see much of me being that type of person except certain aspects of the description. I do like to work alone rather than working with a group since I rather get things done quick and easily, and also that I know that I can depend on myself to get things done rather than hoping that half of the other task does get completed. I do sometimes feel that my leadership skills are not always very good than what they should be.

.... I think that this is something that would look good in my career because I will be meeting people in a medical office everyday and that’s a good skill to have no matter what field you go into. I do have a social flair in me so I think that it is a good characteristic to have in the work place and in personal lives.
The question is “Does your strengths and interests fit your career?” I think that every single characteristic or interest listed here would be more of a job in social working, counseling, or something along those lines. I feel that my major and future career is something that only maybe one or two interest and strengths would actually fit into my profile. So I’m thinking that I might have to rethink my major to make sure it is a good idea and something that I’m going to willing to be able to do for my future success and goals that I want to achieve.

- Women don’t receive the spotlight in sports very often. Usually, the men in baseball, football, basketball, and soccer have higher salaries and are paid attention to more. This wasn’t the case with a special league of female baseball players. These ladies sparked a thought in peoples’ heads in the mid 20th-century. Could women really play a professional sport instead of staying home to do the housework. From 1943-1954, women in the All-American Girls Professional Baseball League helped to change the rights women were believed to have in society and in the workplace as they began playing a professional sport as a form of entertainment....
