    Striving for career success - the ISFJ way

    Have you met other fellow ISFJs who became quite successful in their careers?

    In my work place, there is an ISFJ supervisor i know who earns 130K per year, he is 53 years old. He worked in that company all his life.The company of course is very stable with great benefits. I think this is common for ISFJs to stick with a company and stay loyal for a long time.

    Another ISFJ I know is 28 years old and he just finished his MBA and landed a good position as a supervisor.

    As for myself, I started my career and working as an clerk for a good company, but I am struggling to believe in myself that i can move higher up. I graduate from one of the best schools and a Finance major so it was a disappointment for me when I couldn't land a job in the Finance/Accounting field. I sometimes question is it because I am a female that there are not many opportunities being opened to me? All the successful ISFJs I know are males, and to be honest most of the jobs that ISFJs get are nursing, clerical jobs, social work... Jobs that do not pay as much or not as highly esteemed by others.

    Anyway lately I have been thinking of making a career change maybe as an interior decorator or a web designer. I've always been creative and taught myself Dreamweaver and Photoshop in my spare time..I took some elective art courses at school and I've thoroughly enjoyed it. I'm thinking of taking some part time courses in nearby College and just going for it and see where it leads.

    I work for the gov't and ff I stay with my job as a clerk I can retire age 55 Currently I am in my early 20s. The only problem though is that I feel like something is missing in my career.

    I want to make something out of myself... when I think about it, we only have one life to live. why not make the most of it? I would like to find something fulfilling and satisfying, and not just settle for something safe, secure, and okay.

    I would be glad to hear other people's experience in their career, and please if you are a successful ISFJ female I would like to hear it! It would be a great encouragement. Thanks a lot.

    And this is the song that inspires me to have hope:

    Well I'm not an ISFJ female obviously, but I say go for it, move higher up.

    IMO, ISFJs are inherently built for success. You have the dedication, the discipline, and the power to draw people in to your side.
    If you've already taken the initiative to explore interior decoration/web designing, I don't see how it could possibly not work out. You have everything it takes to launch and establish a great career. People have made successful career changes before, and so can you.

    ISFJ - The Nurturers

    I guess you could say that I am a successful ISFJ, since I am a Senior Non-commissioned Officer in the U.S. Army, and in 7 years had been promoted to a level that many Soldiers don't even make in 20. But this is a profession that places great emphasis on technical skills as well as loyalty, which loyalty being a major ISFJ trait, it natural for me. The best part is all the leadership schools the Army puts us through helped with developing area's of my personality that were not natural.

    We can do anything we put our minds to, we just have to commit to success and let nothing stop us. And when I commit to something, I buy into it lock, stock and barrel.
