Linguistic

The Linguistic's interests are usually focused on ideas and information exchange. They tend to like reading a lot, and enjoy discussion about what has been said. Some will want to write about their own ideas and may follow a path towards journalism, story writing or editing. Others will develop skills in other languages, perhaps finding work as a translator or interpreter. Most Linguistic types will enjoy the opportunity to teach or instruct people in a topic they are interested in.

What subjects did you take in school and how have these influenced your career path?

From a very early age I was interested in computers, which was the reason behind wanting to pursue something in that area. However, when I was in my final year in secondary school, I took up Business as a subject, and found I had an aptitude in that area too. I still went with Computer Science in College, but when the time came to choosing a career path, I found myself looking into areas that combined both.

In hindsight, I would have liked to have studied Economics in college, but enjoyed Computer Science to a point. Management consultants come from a wide variety of educational backgrounds. We have graduates from theroetical physics, through to arts. I took Geography, French, Physics and Chemistry in school, but could have picked anything in order to follow the career path I took.
