ESFJ Career Choices

ESFJs often find themselves in occupations that either involve a lot of direct interactions with other people (e.g. clients, other staff members) or involve responsibility for critical tasks (e.g. require thorough attention or may have serious consequences), or both. Very often ESFJs realize their potential in health care and various community care organizations. Other favoured areas of occupation include social work, service-oriented professions as well as teaching at schools (often elementary schools).

Education Tips

  • Education is a huge investment of time and money so be ready to ask a lot of questions of any college or university you are considering. Therefore, create a list of questions and take notes as you get your answers while talking to an enrolment advisor or when signing up and requesting information.
  • Be wary of any school that is unable to or refuses to answer any of your questions. A degree is a long-term commitment and choosing a college or university that understands and can meet your needs should be one of your top priorities.
  • Sign up and request information from several schools so that you can compare and, if possible, negotiate more favourable conditions.
  • There is no such thing as the "perfect" college or university. Stay open minded and realize that any number of schools may be a good fit for you and provide you with the degree and student services that you need.

Important aspects you should pay attention to include:

  • School’s accreditation
  • Financial aid offered
  • Tuition and fees. What’s included and what isn’t. Payment plans.
  • Student services available
  • Instructors’ credentials
  • How tests are administered
  • Time required to complete the program
  • How long the program has been offered and how many students have enrolled
  • Key dates
  • Any requirements or pre-requisites
