A perfect fit between personality and the selection of a specialization are essential for an individual in giving his/her best to the profession.
A career in management has become of prime importance over the last few years. Management itself is a very wide discipline; hence students who choose management as a career step into the discipline with a question as to which major specialization to choose. This choice is influenced by various factors, such as stereotypes for occupations, an individual’s skills and abilities, the job market for a particular specialization, the influence of family members, the personality of individuals and many others. The influencing factors are external as well as internal to every individual.Specialization should be selected on the basis of personality types. A right match between personality and specialization selection may help an individual for giving his/her best to the profession.
