While selecting a career path is difficult, take comfort in the fact that your unique skills are well-suited for a variety of careers. Your sensitivity would be a good fit for caring professions such as counseling, teaching or education. Likewise, your analytical abilities would be a great fit for science or research. As an artistic soul, you may find the most satisfaction in art, music, acting or entertainment. If this is the case, look to the successes of performer Nick Jonas or actress Alex Bledel, who were both born on September 16th, for motivation.
