In order to determine what career is best for you, it’s important for you to spend time evaluating your skills, interests and work values. There are thousands of careers available to people, and you need to find the one that is right for you. Although you are still in high school, it’s not too early to be thinking about a career. This will help guide you when deciding on a college.
Even after completing some self-assessments, it’s perfectly normal if you are not completely decided on a career. At least you have ruled out some career fields that you don’t want to pursue and perhaps have a general idea of what types of careers sound appealing. Remember that the career you decide on now doesn’t have to be your life-long career. The average person switches jobs 10-15 times throughout his/her career!
If you would like assistance understanding your self-assessment results, please stop by the College and Career Center.
