Assist with Recognizing and Developing Potential
Your goal statement should be simple. You have too much involved in that statement. Some are explanations of justification and some are steps. A simple goal statement would be: I am interested in becoming a mechanical engineer.
Steps should also be simply stated. The following is a restatement of some of what you had above along with some revision of sequence: - while in high school talk to your school counselor about taking interest and aptitude tests to help determine if this is an appropriate area and arranging to talk to people who are working in that area at their place of employment - while still in high school pursue internship, coop, shadowing, or volunteer opportunities that would allow you to become familiar with the field - while in high school locate professional organizations in you area to which mechanical engineers belong - while in high school talk to your math and science teachers about the engineering field and see who you might visit to learn more - graduate from high school so that I can go to college - pursue a degree in mechanical engineering - talk to the alumni relations person at your college to visit and talk to alumni who are working in jobs that look interesting to you to get good job information and job leads
