  • As a Go-Getter, you’re full of ideas – and you love nothing more than to make yourself stand out by generating new concepts and unexpected ideas that one else has thought of.

Although you’re a true people-person, you’re not terribly interested in managing others – you’re too busy focusing on your own success! However, your people skills and innate ability to schmooze make you a natural for ideal jobs that utilize this trait, such as sales, marketing, public relations, career coach or any media-related position.
