Patrícia’s Answer

Hello,
Planning and Managing is a great career path to follow, if you decide to persue that you'll see there are a number of job opportunities across all areas.
I would definitely recommend taking a leader role in every chance you get, whenever you have group projects at school, that will be an opportunity to get experience and also practice.
Do your research online for ebooks and playbooks on managing and planning, while at it, you'll get a grasp of what you need to start it off and also get recommendations of books you may want to read on the subject.
Also, in terms of college degree, management courses are the one's to look at, I'd also recommend for you to search for current management methodologies that employers are looking for, as that's how you'll know the career future you may have, an example of a methodology that's used and valuable for companies is scrum and agile.
I hope this was helpful! :)

Simeon’s Answer

The best thing you can do early on is develop your skill sets and connections. Invest in your knowledge of technology and the markets. The more you understand about the world around you, the better you'll be able to interpret specific events and how they affect your company. Learn software and coding skills. Even though you're probably not considering computer science, the more comfortable you can be with new softwares, the better able that you'll be to lever them in management and planning. Lastly, build connections with students, teachers, and anyone from the industry you can get to know. Your professional network will be a cornerstone for your career long-term.

Hi there! Planning and Managing is a great profession. I personally have experience in my career with Leadership. Since you are in middle school I would look into reading some leadership books and maybe even working with your teachers and taking on some Champion roles in the class.

Any opportunity where you can be a team leader or lead a project will give you some experience. In school these skills are not taught as a class. Depending on the high school you go to they may have a business class. Thus, you need to find books or online info about project and program management which will help you with details about organizing projects and managing the projects which will help with any school projects. Then find info about managing people and businesses.

You can also ask your teachers how they plan and manage their classes, ask the principal how they do it, ask the sports coaches, and this will give you more understanding. If your parents work in a business, maybe they can have a couple people show you what they do.
