Match a Music Career to Your Personality Type

There are so may inspirational quotes out there based around career choices.

Do something you love and you’ll never work a day in your life” – Confucius
Positive thinking will let you do everything better than negative thinking will.” – Zig Ziglar
Donโ€™t watch the clock; do what it does. Keep going.” – Sam Levenson
Gotta check these chicks cause you know they ‘gon block when I take these flicks” – That’s Beyonce, just making sure you were still paying attention.

Most career success comes from matching your true self with a career that fits that truth. For example, if you are an introvert it doesn’t make sense to work in sales, am I right?

The below infographic from our friends over at collegematchup.net helps match your personality with a music career, which is right up our alley. So after you figure out where you fit, head over to our music jobs section and find yourself a career match, or as Beyonce would say, “Get back to business”.

    I am getting a Day Pass to be on this site for free today. I am a Camera Operator, I have worked as an AD on many music videos. I had my own recording studio for more than Ten years before I got into TV & Film production. I was a Music Chart Supervisor for CASH BOX Magazine. I was a Hype man for The Roots crew on the Things Fall A Part album, I am still recording rap songs for independent producers for TV shows and Misc promotions, I know TV Production, music, and entertainment. All of this needs to count when looking for a job. With time and experience, sure I get the interview, and i am a good guy, so the word is out, and I am looking for a job, because I am available. here in Los Angeles. Am I willing to travel?, as long as I don’t neglecked my family, sure. I, from time to time, bring them along, everyone gets the experience, good times. OK, Now who needs a great employee?

    • Nathan – you have great experience and we are a great resource for jobs posted around the country… I think we’ll be a good match! Enjoy your day pass (just a reminder – the blog is always free!) – Brian

    I spelled neglect wrong sorry.

  6. If you make a mistake, make it a big one!

    The rationale here, especially with young musicians is to get them to “go for it” and be assertive when approaching a musical passage where they feel insecure about or are worried they won’t be able to produce it. Their tendency is to back off or be tentative when I recommend being
    Assertive in those instances! Boblevy8424@gmail.com

      jonathan,

      Learn how to spell. Or type, or both.

      And who the hell is Brian Clapp.
      I’m Sorry. But what is his experience that makes him such an authority on how to succeed in the music business?

      • Hey Jimmy, I’m Brian Clapp – I’ve worked for 20 years in the television industry and the last five as Director of Content for WorkinSports.com & WorkinEntertainment.com… but I didn’t create the infographic you are commenting on so I’m not sure why you are upset by my presence. Either way, that’s who the hell I am.

        And just to help in your comment, you wouldn’t capitalize Sorry, but you would capitalize jonathan. I always find it humorous when people have grammatical mistakes in their critique of someone’s grammar…so thanks for the laugh! – Brian

    YEAH! I WOULD LIKE TO KNOW WHY MY FAVORITE BANDS CANNOT BE HEARD ON F.M. RADIO. I’M SICK TO DEATH OF CLASSIC ROCK,HIP-HOP, AND THE SAME GOD-DAMN HITS,OVER-AND-OVER,AGAIN-AND-AGAIN UNTIL I JUST TURN OFF MY RADIO!!

    • Hey Dennis – the stations go where the audience and in turn where the money is. If you want a specific type of music nowadays you need to lean on spotify, pandora, sirius xm etc. -Brian (and P.S. STOP SHOUTING AT ME!)
