Grow Your Career

What do you want to be when you grow up?

"You know, son, I don't know what I want to be when I grow up."

- Roger St. Dennis at age 58. 

Many years ago, our founder, Stewart St. Dennis, was visiting with his father.  At that time, Roger was thinking about retiring. As he was starting to think about that next stage in his life, he wasn't sure what the plan was. That moment stood out for Stewart and he has used that perspective fore the rest of his IT career.  In that career, he has worked with a wide variety of IT professionals. During that career Stewart supported the personal and professional development many people he worked with.  When he did that, he used this quote and the underlying idea to help them grow their career.  Now GrowMe4IT wants to be able to help even more people grow their information technology career.

Personality Type

There is a general relationship between your personality and how well you fit into various careers. You are best suited for a specific career when your instinctive reaction to a situation is generally the best reaction.  Many of those reactions are driven by your personality, as your personality includes instinctive "wired" reactions. Consequently, your personality may make it easier or harder to work in specific job at the end of your career path.  You will be guided through a personality type review.  Based on your understanding of your personality type, you can better consider your career options.
