Hi Emma!

Have you completed the career interest inventory on Naviance? It could help guide you in deciding what type of careers may be a good fit!

Have you thought about what fields you may want to generally be in? For example, do you like science? Do you dread creative classes?

Hi Emma,
There are no universal answers. It is a very personal perspective. I may not like what you like, and vice-versa.
So look for something YOU love doing, and then see if you can make a career out of it.
This will help you decide what path, after High School, is best for you.
Good luck!

Hi Emma!

I would say that there is no specific job that everyone would find equally interesting and fun because it all comes down to your preferences. What I would say is that it will be helpful to think about what your hobbies are, why you like them, and how you could incorporate them in your future job. It doesn't have to be something unique. For example, a person whose hobby is photography might like it as it allows to communicate with the audience through photos taken so in this case this person might want to focus on jobs where communication or art are one of the key aspects. I would also suggest to think about something you loved doing as a kid because stuff we used to do in early childhood is usually enjoyable as it is not forced. It might also be helpful to look up videos describing the day in the life of a person who has a certain job because it will give you the most realistic perspective of what it is like to do specific tasks on a daily basis.

Try to keep in mind that while your family and peers' advice is worth considering, it is up to you what you will enjoy the most.

Hope you have a great day!

Hi Emma

hope this finds you well, there are multiple careers out there that will spark an interest, I notice you mention you are 15 and do not know what you want to do yet, with that said the best way to figure things out is to simplify them, what I mean by this is to cover all your bases, you see every career regardless of what t is involve a basic education, this would be High School and in some scenarios some college or some technical education, so my best advice would be to focus on your essential education this way that is out of the way, in the mean time as you focus on eliminating HS you may want to see what sparks your interest right now, is it cars? Fashion? Traveling? Cooking? Music? Film? What motivates you at this point, what are the things you love doing? Everyone has something they love, you just need to know what that is and hone it! me for example i love music, film, physics, culinary arts, traveling among other things and I enjoy pursuing all. In todays word the opportunity to shine is at everyone's reach through social media for example, there is always someone who is willing to listen, offer an opinion and of course critique your work bad or good, regardless don't give up on it, don't let yourself be influenced by the opinion if is bad, be respectful this will help gather more people to seek you, and finally once you've found that interest pursue it head on!
All the best

Hi Emma, we have all been there! You have so many options to explore, so I recommend experiencing things you are interested in but also not interested in. You will never narrow down what could be right for you without going outside your comfort zone. Shadowing people is the best way to get the most experience while you're young. Reach out to friends and family and ask them to take you to work with them.

Secondly, do not stress about choosing a major in college! When I was 15, I had no idea what I wanted to do, and felt like everyone else did. I wanted to be outside, do something different every day and just have fun. I had no idea what career suited that description. The answer is I still don't know! So say yes to opportunities that come your way that allow you to explore different industries.
