Career Exploration – Questions
1. Of all the career paths you've discovered, which two paths are you most interested in learning more about at this time?
I am interested in learning more about the career path of becoming a Mathematics Assistant Professor and a Cyber Security Engineer.
2. What are the major similarities and differences in these two career paths?
The major similarity is that both require a bachelor level degree and a constant study as time progresses. This is in terms of research for Math Assistant Professor and in terms of certifications for a Cyber Security Engineer. However, a major difference is that a doctorate degree is required for becoming an assistant professor whereas in the case of cyber security engineers experience is necessary. Another major difference is in the nature of the job. While a Math Assistant Professor requires teaching skills i.e. effective communication and interpersonal skills, a Cyber security engineer focuses more on the critical thinking and problem-solving ability to effectively identify an insecurity in the system and develop an appropriate solution for it.
3. Of the two career paths you've researched in more depth, which one appears to be a better match for your interests? Explain.
I have always had interest in being part of a dynamic workplace. Becoming a cyber security engineer gives me the opportunity to work on the field, gaining experience in working in various types of situations. The ability to develop myself and become sharp enough to be aware of unpredictable threats to a system would give me a great amount of job satisfaction. In addition, I have always felt the need for more protection of user’s information. It would be rewarding for me to know that I have participated in making that a reality.
4. Of the two career paths you've researched in more depth, which one appears to be a better match for your skills? Explain.
Cu
ently, I am attaining my bachelor’s degree in computer engineering. In my three years in the university, I have developed effective communication skills through various course work that involved debates, presentations, case studies and so on. Furthermore, I have worked in the learning enrichment center as a mathematics tutor. My experience in being a tutor taught me a great deal about emphasizing with a student, especially those suffering from math anxiety. Therefore, at present, my skills better match with the teaching field.

5. Of the two career paths you've researched in more depth, which one appears to be a better match for your values (what you find most important in life)? Explain
I have always felt the importance of education in having an impact on the success of a nation. In specific, I have always been passionate in putting emphasis on girls’ education. If I am to follow the career path of becoming an assistant professor, I would most likely work in my country and promote education in the youth as much as possible. In the case of girls, this is necessary as they would be responsible for educating their own children
