So frequently when I do presentations for schools or organizations, I get asked, “When should we start thinking about careers?” My answer is always, “The sooner the better.” You see, it’s not that you have to decide what you want to do “when you grow up” but rather you need to explore the possibilities and experience the things you want to learn more about or discover things you really hope you never have to do again in your life! How can you use your natural abilities, passions, interests and skills now to set yourself up for success?
One of my messages is get out there and get those internship/externship experiences. Click here to check out just one example of some terrific high school students getting great experiences through a wonderful program. These guys are going to be prepared for college admissions, to declare a major and to make dreams happen! There is an old saying, ” There are three kinds of people, those who watch what happens, those who make things happen, and those who wonder what happened.” Which one are you?
If you are a high school student, what have you done to explore your possibilities? Need help? Contact me.
