Bangalore: Do you act like a boss all the time? In many instances, do you aspire to be dominant, control people and let them follow your orders? Probably you are a ‘Bossy’ type and not all career options are in line with your strong personality or can satisfy your hunger for control and autonomy.

To help you, we have put together a list of careers that are perfect fit to exploit your ‘bossy’ trait to the fullest, as listed by Lisa Manterfield for Yahoo Education.

#5. Sales Representative

Are you result oriented with a natural flair to make things happen and do you love to take things into your own hands? If your answer is a ‘yes’, a career as a sales representative might be tailor made for your strong-willed and proactive personality.

As a sales representative, you might stumble on a lot of evaluation work, along with extensive travelling to meet with clients to convince them to procure the products of your employer and preparing reports. As per the Department of Labor, these professionals need to be goal-oriented, persuasive, and determined; all of which are traits found in plenty among the bossy type.

Though a non-technical sales position doesn’t necessarily require a formal education, possession of degree in communication, marketing or a related field could be helpful to land a lucrative offer in this line of work.
