Hi Summer,

For the 🚀space exploration field, there're similar Q&As on this forum. I would recommend checking astronomer for some great discussions or directly via links below:

I recommend studying the space and offering to do paid or unpaid internships in those areas. You can experiment and try out what you like. When you're there, ask the employees what they studied and did to get the job they are in. I got my first (unpaid) internships by telling EVERYONE I knew what I wanted to intern in. I got a one month internship that way. The next summer I got my second (paid very little) internship by sending letters to the Human Resources team of EVERY company I was interested in. Eventually one place reached out to me and was impressed by my initiative. I ended up working at that company for two summers in a row.
