Your question is much appreciated. I'll attempt to answer your question based on my assumption of what you are asking. . .
- Prior knowledge of College: - -> I researched and applied to colleges I was interested in by contacting the colleges (they did not have the internet when I was in college) directly via telephone and/or by sending them a letter requesting they send me brochures and information. I did this during my junior and senior year of high school
- Prior knowledge of Field: - -> Growing up I had very good administrative and business acumen; so I went down the business path as a career choice. Today, I work as a Technical Project Manager for AT&T and enjoy the type of work that I perform.
I wish you much success on your career journey.
Good luck to you!
