Hi Deavion,

I'm pretty sure the answer is quite straight forward at this moment. What is your dream career?

If it's some certain job area, go find current related job openings, check for qualification. If you can accomplish every goal, you should know the direction.

If it's some specific company, go find out what jobs they offer constantly matching your interest. Check for qualifications and work towards it.

I know the advice sounds bit of simple but trust me, you will find a lot more to learn and improve on your journey to your dream but they definitely worth the efforts. :)

Jeremy recommends the following next steps:

Jim’s Answer

Regardless of what your specific goals are, aim high. Learn everything you can. Stay ahead on due dates. Be painstakingly organized. Keep a calender or schedule and live by it. Never give yourself excuses for not doing something. There are no excuses. If it's important, we find a way. If it's not, we find an excuse. Be 110% committed to your goal. It doesn't matter if that goal is to be the very best garbage man or the very best rocket scientist. How passionate you are, and how you approach it is what truly matters. If you have this mindset, you will be a success.

Frank’s Answer

If you already have a specific career in mind, I recommend joining a professional organization in that field. Most professional organizations have student memberships. This helps you learn more about the industry, make connections with professionals in that industry, and often see what jobs are available in your area. In addition, you could start pursuing a certification in that field to show future employers that you are self-motivated and dedicated to your personal growth.

Simeon’s Answer

The saying that comes to mind is "slow down in order to speed up". Set aside some time to really consider what you're after. It's possible to send yourself off quickly in the wrong direction and find yourself in a career that you don't want to be in. Sometimes, it's hard to know what you want before trying a few things out, but see if you can talk to people in the careers you're considering and ask them to be honest about what they appreciate about their career and what they regret about the path they took. You'd be surprised at what you can learn about what's it really like to be in a given field for several years. People that have just started out won't have the same perspective as people who've had time to try out a couple different options in their field and reflect on their choices.

Mary’s Answer

Keep your options open, I say this as you are still young. As much as you like to plan, as evidenced by your question, sometimes you don't find your dream job, IT find you! Try as many different things that you can, volunteer to help out on a project that isn't your responsibility or that might be out of your wheelhouse. It's been said a thousand times, but it is so true, you never know where inspiration will strike.
