Is it fine to choose a career path you don't know if you like it or not?
I am a junior at Galileo High school. I am just wondering what I should do after high school. #career #college #career-choice
You may even change your career 15 years in which happens all the time like Michael said above but don't be afraid of it as every opportunity is another experience for you to better yourself and career over time!
I think a lot of people get stuck in a fast-track pattern of going immediately from one thing to the next. If that is part of your goal, fantastic, but if you're doing it just because it's what you're "supposed to do" or because others told you to do it that way; there's a danger in that. If you don't understand why you're doing what you're doing you could find yourself quite far along and realize it's not what you want for your life.
After college, I began working as an event planner and did so for 2 years before deciding to return to school for my Masters, because once again, I gained experience and perspective and realized It was necessary for my next set of goals.
There are lots of pressures on you to go out there and conquer the world, but knowing what you want is what will motivate you to get the most out of your experience.
