All You Need to Know About INFJ Careers

Updated: Apr 5



Hi there! I’m so excited to help you on your journey to finding the right career. The first thing I want to tell you is that you’re not alone. A lot of INFJs struggle to find the right career. I did too!

Finding the right career for me has been one of the most difficult things that I have ever done. I spent so much time in high school and college worrying about picking the right career the first time. I stressed about it daily! I didn’t want to make the “wrong” decision. And I thought that if I planned it out enough and thought it through enough that I would make the perfect choice the first time.

I looked for advice in every place that I could find. I even took a class in college that was designed to help people find the right career. I came out of that class more lost than when I went in.

I want to start off by saying that I firmly believe that INFJs can do anything that they put their minds to. I have worked in marketing for more than 10 years and it’s not a career that’s high on the list of “suggested careers” for INFJs, but it’s something that I really enjoy.

With that in mind, I hope that you will find this book helpful and that you will have a better idea of the right career for you when you get to the end of it. Whatever career that you decide on, I wish you the best of luck!
