When you get some interesting answers in this investigation, you can do the following to further investigate careers: - talk to your school counselor about participating in coop, intern, shadowing, and volunteer programs that will allow you to investigate the careers to learn what people do, how they got there, and how you feel about it. - talk to the head of alumni relations at your school to arrange to meet and visit graduates of your school who are doing what you think that you want to do so you can learn more - talk to the reference librarian at your local library to learn about professional organizations to which people in those areas belong so that you can mix and mingle and learn more.
Selecting a career is like buying a pair of shoes. They may look great, but you need to try them on and walk in them for a while to determine proper fit and comfort.
