Are you an individual that thrives off and energises through social situations? If you’re at the extroverted end of the scale and you get a kick from working with people, you’ll be pleased to hear there are plenty of career paths out there waiting for you.

As a people person, you will prefer a working environment that enables you to engage and collaborate as part of a team, and support or network with others. With that in mind, we’re here to inspire naturally outgoing young women to consider a raft of well-suited career opportunities that can bring an extra dimension to your life.

Selling goods or services

If you consider yourself to be competitive yet passionate about equipping people with goods and services that can genuinely enhance their everyday lives, a career in sales could be just the ticket for you. You don’t necessarily require a degree to become a good sales manager, although a degree in relevant fields like marketing could be a benefit in the eyes of employers.

If you do lack experience in sales, a good starting point is to try and work on the sales floor of a business that you love. Your passion and affection for the brand will be all the more natural. If you adore the products that you sell and know every inch about them, it will show in your interaction with consumers. A good salesperson also needs to be able to relate to the pressure points of consumers, demonstrating ways your products can help solve everyday problems.

Managing the human resources of a business

If you enjoy building a rapport with people and are enthusiastic about finding the right people for the right jobs, a career in human resources (HR) makes absolute sense. As an HR officer, you’ll be employed to ensure your employer recruits the right candidates for job vacancies, whilst ensuring existing employees on the payroll are happy and motivated with their own paths for progression laid out within the business.

As with sales careers, you don’t need a degree to have a successful career in HR. You just need a fearless attitude towards personal development. However, some colleges and universities will offer foundation degrees in HR management that can offer a good grounding and demonstrate how serious you are about working in the sector. The CIPD also runs apprenticeships at Levels 3 and 5, ideal for HR support and HR consultant apprenticeships respectively.

Running games in a live dealer casino studio

The live casino scene has become a major part of the overall iGaming industry, with HD-quality live streams and authentic casino gaming environments capable of bringing casino games to the couch of any casino player. As a live casino dealer, you can be trained to operate real-time games without needing the mathematical skills or application that a land-based casino dealer requires. That’s because each live dealer game is overseen and calculated using computers and optical character recognition (OCR) technology to help players keep pace with the action. You can chat live to active players at the table, with players able to interact back with you via real-time chat boxes.

There is genuine diversity available in a role as a trained live casino dealer. A quick glance at Betway’s portfolio of live casino games demonstrates a raft of classic casino table games as well as ‘gameshow’ style concepts where the hosts spin wheels or open boxes in branded games like Monopoly Live or Deal or No Deal Live. There are many live casino studios across Europe, with the likes of Evolution Gaming, Playtech and NetEnt operating their own studios that are then white labelled to the leading iGaming operators.

Educate the next generation of students

If you enjoy the energy of working with younger people and you have a drive and desire to improve the lives of others, a career in teaching could be tailormade for you. If you get a kick out of passing on your knowledge to the next generation and helping students to find their calling through education, teaching is a job for life.

First of all, you’ll need to decide which age group you wish to teach. Classes begin with the Early Years foundation stage (ages 0-5), move through to Key Stages 1, 2, 3 and 4, and end with the latter classes covering school years 10 and 11. To obtain Qualified Teacher Status (QTS), you must have a university degree to teach at secondary or post-compulsory level. You will require at least four GCSEs at grade C or better, including English and Maths, to teach at primary or early years. You must also complete an ITT program which takes 12 months to complete and prepares you to work as a newly qualified teacher (NQT). It’s a calling that some people don’t even realise they are good at. Take Spice Girls star Geri Horner as a prime example. It wasn’t until she starred on CBBC’s ‘Celebrity Supply Teacher’ that she discovered she had an aptitude for teaching.

All four of these jobs are proactive by nature, which should tick all the right boxes for an outgoing person that thrives off working with others.
