Enterprising

Enterprising people like situations that involve using resources for personal or corporate economic gain. Such people may have an opportunistic frame of mind, and like commerce, trade and making deals. Some are drawn to sales and marketing occupations. Many will eventually end up owning their own business, or managing a section in larger organisations. They tend to be very goal-oriented, and work best when focused on a target. Some have an entrepreneurial inclination.

About

Humans and animals live their lives alongside each other. We are inseparable from each other and many jobs exist to care for our animal friends. Vets care for their health while groomers are animal beauticians. In the countryside, the National Parks & Wildlife Service cares for the environment of wild animals, especially endangered ones, while Gamekeepers maintain the numbers of animals used for hunting.
