I graduated college in 2019 and starting working for my first company this past fall. I choose my job at Fannie Mae, because I wanted to work for a reputable company. I graduated with a degree in Economics and I did not know what I wanted to do. I knew I wanted to be on the business side of things. I ended up choosing Fannie Mae, because I enjoy the Real Estate market. I like the idea that we are providing affordable housing to communities as well as providing liquidity to the entire market. My advice for choosing what you want to do is to consider what things you want in life, and choose a job that has ample job security. In times like these (with a global pandemic) it is nice to work for a company that is NEEDED in the market. It provides me a foundation and I do not have to worry about losing my job. I feel like this is a fundamental aspect that each young person should consider when choosing a career path.

I currently work in Information Technology (IT) as a System Engineer writing requirements for the telecommunications network systems that we develop. Initially I went to college for a 2-year degree in Electrical Technology because I always loved technology. Once I started working as a technician I started writing software and got my degree in Computer Science. Then, I also worked as a Project Manager and tester. Thus, you can say that I have done all of the disciplines in IT. I chose to work in these fields because I love them and they are very interesting. You should choose a career that you are interested in and will make you happy.

Hello Student Daniel R. Thanks for your question. I was unemployed due to a recession in the economy. Everyday i went to the government employment office and one day my luck changed. The recruitment officer said a job vacancy had occurred at a large plant bakery for an apprenticeship as a Bread Maker and Flour Confectioner. I went for the interview and got the job on a 3 month trial.
Hope you too Daniel R will get a fresh change of career soon. Best regards from Mr. Frank O. TESOL Teacher from Vantaa in Finland. Friday 10-April-2020. 21:12 EEST.

I chose my current career because I enjoyed it. I started off small with something I was great at - resume writing. Once I realized how I was helping people I found ways to expand on resume writing. At the time, I didn’t know what a Career Coach was. After lots of research and informational interviews (please look this up) I knew I should be a Career Coach. It all started with finding one small thing I liked.

I am a network consulting engineer at Cisco. I have completed my bachelor's degree in electronics and telecommunication.
I chose this field because of my interest in networking. I was always excited about networking and telecommunication technology.
I am in this field for five years and today also I am very excited about upcoming technologies. I believe it is very important that you enjoy your work and your role challenging enough for you to grow. I found the same in networking and telecommunication field that's the main reason I am still pursuing this field.

I chose a career in project management because of my passion for working with people to accomplish shared goals. I am currently a Scrum Master, which is very similar to a project manager. I am a servant leader that helps move roadblocks from the team so that work can be accomplished and goals achieved.

Brenda recommends the following next steps:

  • Identify and research jobs of interest. Then find people that you can shadow to learn more about a particular job or industry
