I love meeting people and helping them figure out what “drives” them. My dream job would be to meet with different individuals and guide them towards creating or reaching their dream job. My goal would be to increase the number of people in the United States who are self-sufficient and not rely on government assistance.
I would love to be a people case manager, much like a counselor does in high school. I would guide and actually help the individual meet their goal to self-sufficiency. I would first ask them what they like to do and assess their skills and hobbies. Case management would also assess their assets, self worth, and motivation to reach their goal.
I believe that every person is created good and those who have turned into criminals or thieves have an underlying problem that drives them to do wrong. Case management is often used for individuals who are “at-risk” or delayed in some form or fashion but I feel that the average person also needs to be guided and informed about how to reach their life goal. Something drives everyone to do good or bad; my job would be to find out what drives the person to do good, be happy, and have peace in their lives.
