6 Professions You Should Consider If You’re Good With People

Very few people are naturals when it comes to communication, socializing, and networking. If you are gifted with these abilities, then you will probably thrive in an environment that involves contact with many different people.

However, finding a job that involves working with lots of other people can be difficult. The reason for this is that such jobs tend to require specialized experience, i.e., knowledge of things like yoga, meditation, or motivational speaking.

This post will tell you about six professions that you could consider, though again, you will need to do a little bit of research into them and potentially get some kind of qualification or degree.

Teaching Yoga

Yoga is an ancient exercise, though the yoga we know today is nothing like the type practiced by Buddhist, Jain, and Hindu monks thousands of years ago. Becoming a yoga teacher in Bali is very straightforward and will put you in touch with a lot of different people. The reason Bali has been specified as a place to go and learn how to become a yoga teacher is that it’s a hub for travelers from all over the world. Additionally, some of the world’s most experienced and knowledgeable yoga practitioners work and study there. If you are unable to travel, then you should be able to find classes in your area. In order to become a yoga teacher, you will need to have a genuine passion for yoga. If you don’t, you won’t last very long teaching it.

Motivational Speaking

Motivational speaking is another way of working with lots of different people. The best thing about motivational speaking is that it’s not something you have to do in person, thanks to platforms like Skype and Zoom. You can hold motivational seminars over the Internet. That said, if you want to hold them in person, then you most certainly can. Another great thing about motivational speaking is that there’s no fixed price that you have to charge. You can set your rate at whatever you think is reasonable. Don’t rip people off, though.

Youth Work

Youth work can be great, especially if you have lived experience that’ll come in handy working with young people, i.e., time in prison, mental health issues, or resolved issues with addiction. One area of youth work that’s very lucrative and that there is a lot of work in at the moment is with young offenders, as in children and teenagers who have been arrested and referred to the probation service. Youth work can be a very rewarding line of work because you can help change the lives of young people who are heading down bad paths.

Probation Service

If you are interested in working with offenders and helping to rehabilitate them, then you could consider getting a job in the probation service, working with adults. Many of the people you’ll come across when working as a probation officer will not be interested in changing their ways, but every so often, you will come across somebody who’s genuine about making a change in their life and stopping their offending. As a probation officer, you will be responsible for recalling people to prison if they aren’t keeping up with the terms of their release agreement. You will also work with people who haven’t yet been to prison but are close to going there.

Mental Health

If you are interested in mental health issues, then why not try to find work in psychiatry? In order to become a psychiatrist you will need to spend many years studying, ideally in university. However, you can become a counselor without a degree, though you will need to take a course online and get a certificate. Becoming a counselor can be just as rewarding as becoming a psychiatrist or a psychologist, though you won’t get paid nearly as much. Working with the mentally ill can be very rewarding, as you can make a real change in your patients’ lives.

Consider Acting

A line of work that’s completely different from those listed here so far is acting. Actors work with lots of different people. While they don’t make a difference in people’s lives (at least in the same way as the previously mentioned professions do), acting can still be very rewarding. If you want the best chance at becoming an international success, then it’s a good idea to sign up for an acting college or university. Some of the world’s best acting colleges are in London, Paris, and New York.

In Conclusion

Working with other people can be very rewarding. Depending on the line of work that you pursue, it can also be very lucrative. There are many more professions you can pursue than those listed here, but this article’s suggestions are without a doubt the best.
