    Basically I'm doing my first year of uni (statistics and finance) and I don't really know what career I wanna do. I tend to be quiet or reserved but I do talk a lot with friends. It's just that I would prefer to do a job that involves a large amount of independent work and not always communicating with clients. Something in the financial type of career would be nice. I've been considering actuary, accounting, finance department but I'm not sure whether these jobs are fine for more reserved people?

    To be honest, a lot of jobs in finance involve being banged up in an office behind a computer screen which is going to suit you, but you will have to speak to staff from time to time.

    whatever job you do in finance (and generally everything) will have you communicating with clients/others, whether your client is your boss/regulators/other departments.. so i would focus on working on your confidence and general aptitude and strive for a career you're interested in

    Yeah thanks, I've been looking at it all wrong. I should be working on improving my confidence and going for a career in financial services which is what I'm interested in.

    Yeah I know
    Thankfully I am improving a bit more at uni. At school I used to stick to my close group of friends and not talk much to everyone else but now I'm meeting more peeps and getting out there. Will be working in a call centre part time as well which will improve my confidence more hopefully

    The world is yours.. if you dare~

    In the past successful business people were seen to be exuberant extroverts with strong personalities and they were role models for generations and generations.

    And then people like Bill Gates and Steve Jobs came along.. ~


    Timidity is a trait of character but that does not mean that there are jobs or things not for you...

    You can do anything...you don't have to do things like everyone~

    Truestory~ :3
