Which of these statements best reflects your future career plans?
You are the stuff your lab director’s dreams are made of; did we just get a dump truck of new samples to analyze? You’re on it, and you thrive under the pressure to work more efficiently. You may sometimes wish your coworkers could pipette as fast as you, but you enjoy their company and are happy to be establishing a good career.
You pride yourself on catching all errors, big and small. Writing SOPs is a dream come true. You eat, sleep and breathe quality, and your attention to detail landed you a position of importance. Others respect and look up to you because you sweat the small stuff.
You lead others efficiently with honey and enjoy working collaboratively, but when that deadline is drawing near, you know how to send the right signals to get things done. Your enthusiasm and organization inspire and motivate others to do their best work. You are the centerpiece to a thriving swarm of forensic scientists.
Speed is a strategical decision at the sacrifice of quality, and your position demands accuracy. You consistently deliver that accuracy—one might say you carry the weight of the lab on your back. You dislike unreasonable expectations with deadlines, but you’ll stay true to your genial pursuit of precision.
You are well steeped in the latest crime TV series, and you’re the person everyone wants on their trivia team. You’re beginning your career and you’re excited about the abundance of opportunities in the forensic field. The future is far off, but you know you’re going to make a big impact somehow.
If there is ever a technical question, you are the person everyone turns to. You eagerly pore yourself over the writings of John M. Butler and other literary geniuses alike. You stay current on the latest advances in the field and have high ambitions for yourself.
