     Healthcare Careers: Being a nurse or doctor isn’t the only way to make a huge difference in the healthcare field. For example, if you are good with numbers and strategy, you can find ways to manage costs without sacrificing care.  On the other hand, if you have an aptitude for science, you might find a fulfilling career performing lab tests to provide physicians with valuable diagnostic information.

    Human Services and Law Enforcement: If your talent lies in understanding human behavior, you can help shape healthier habits in others and also protect society from threats. Many students pursue counseling fields while other transfer credits earned in an associate degree in criminal justice into a bachelor's degree to allow them to pursue law enforcement positions.
