personal assessment
Personal assessment
  • I am a very patient person who is a great listener and loves to take notes and stay organized. I love to help people, and I feel that this would be a great way to bring my strengths and loves together so that I have a well-paying, steady job that I enjoy. Also, this career goes great with my schooling plans. I am willing to go to school for six years to receive a Master’s Degree. Audiology seems like the right fit for me.
