In each group, we’ve answered several key questions to help you determine how good of a fit you are for that job. Based on over 20 years of training and developing students we’ve determined there are a few key points that determine how successful you will be in a particular industry:

  • Personality type
  • Compensation
  • Entry / exit strategy

After discovering which path is the best fit you can start developing your learning plan with the courses and certificates that are necessary to get hired and thrive in the role.
