Stephanie’s Answer

Hi Trevor, the million dollar question! As a recent-ish college grad, I can say that it is by far the hardest question to answer. Thinking about this in high school is great, but you don't have to know! Knowing what you want to study or do and what a job is all about is difficult. I would consider the following:

Interests:
- what do you like to do / what don't you like to do?

Skills
- what are you good at / what are you not so good at?
- what would you like to learn more about / what do you KNOW you don't want to learn more about

Use these questions to help yourself find an idea of what aligns both with what you like and what you feel your good at and let that guide your exploration in college! This exercise can and should be repeated along the way as you consider joining clubs, majors, classes, internships, and ultimately a career.

I would advice you to find subjects and skills that you like that interest you the most. Most of the time people can make a career out of the passions that they hold. Depending on the passions you may have it will determine the steps you should take next. If you have a specific career in mind, post it here so we can respond to your questions!

Will’s Answer

Hi Trevon,

I have to say I had no clue what's a career or my career when I was your age. Same happens to lots of others posting similar questions on this platform as well. However, you are off to a good start simply because of the early awareness of career.

I would recommend search keywords like "Career", "Goal" in the search box and take a look at the filtered Q&As.
E.g., https://www.careervillage.org/questions/473614/how-to-set-a-career-goal
Thank you comment icon Appreciate the help thanks Trevon
