AM I FIT FOR THIS CAREER?
How fitting is my personality?
- I am very organized and like to debate on important topics, which I think is important because debating would be an activity that a lawyer would practice the most. I enjoy helping people, and this would be one of the best jobs if your against inequality, discrimination of any type, and believe in civil rights. One of my strengths is I am very understanding and passionate about a case which I believe is important to actually understand the job.
How does my work fit my career?
-I take my time to analyze carefully my work, and I believe that is important in this career. I tent to write a lot and pick up on important factors, which is necessary in this career.
My biggest obstacle in perusing this career would be language (since my original language is Spanish) because I think it would be hard comprehend evidence or just in general words in a case. I believe that if I study good enough I would be able to overcome this challenge and eventually have no obstacles in path.
