I studied diverse topics before I finally made up my mind. I was an Economics and Sociology major in high school, and then I enrolled in a business school in Paris where I studied Marketing. Maybe at the time, I was still confused about the path I wanted to follow because I dropped out after 2 years. Few months later, I decided to follow my sister and we moved to San Francisco. Once in California, we attended an English school to improve the language and obtain our TOEFL. Desiring to go back to school, I enrolled at the California State University of Hayward and studied Marketing & Communication.
I found myself captivated by the topics and decided to specialize into Fashion Marketing & Management as a result. Few months later, I moved to New York and I got my B.B.A. from Berkeley College. I chose that field because it combined my passion for fashion to my attraction to marketing. I especially enjoyed the business side of the fashion industry, it became to me a lot more interesting than the artistic aspect of it: the perfect compromise.
After finishing my Masters’ degree, I aspire to work in a multinational fashion company in the area of Brand Management. I feel that I can identify with brands and products. I intend to develop a good relationship with our target market and implement global marketing strategies.
During a business the professor asked the class to take a career assessment test to highlight our strenghts and weaknesses, give us an outlook and directions to find the perfect match when it came to a career. The results were quite comforting since they were exactly the skills and personality traits needed for this field.
Career relevant traits:
- Can absorb highly complex theories and material
- Strive to create structure from theoretical abstractions
- Brilliant strategists
- Strong insights and intuitions, which are trusted implicitly
- Enjoy difficult theoretical challenges
- Bored with mundane routine tasks
- Calm, collected and analytical
- Very logical and rational
- Original, creative, independent, ingenious and resourceful
- Natural leader, but will follow if you can fully support the person and plans
- Prefer to work alone and better at doing so.
“More than the other personality types, you are brilliant at grasping complex concepts and applying them to problems to create with long-term strategies.Since this type of “strategizing” is your central focus and drive, there is a good match between desire and ability. Being an INTJ you will be happy and most effective in careers which allow this type of processing, and which promote an environment in which you are given a lot of autonomy over your work and life.You dislike messiness and inefficiency, and anything that is muddled or unclear. You value clarity and efficiency, and will put enormous amounts of energy and time into consolidating your insights into structured patterns.Other people may find you reserved and at times detached. It is not that you are without caring, but just that you don’t need, or have the desire to express it, or receive it as much as other personality types. People may incorrectly believe you are rigid or set in your ways, but this is far from the truth, as you seek ways to implement the best strategies for your ideas and are quite open to hearing an alternative way of doing something.As an INTJ, you are an ambitious, self-confident, deliberate, long-range thinker. Like other INTJs you could well end up in engineering or scientific pursuits, although some find enough challenge within the business world in areas which involve organizing and strategic planning.”
