You did not mention about what your career goal is. However, it is good to hear that you have your career goal.
Below is my suggestions :
1. Find out the entry criteria of the college of the relevant subjects and take the course in the college
2. Explore any intern opportunities of the relevant career in your college days
3. Breakdown your career goals into different milestone at different stages and review the progress regularly
4. Continue to learn or attend courses to keep yourself up to date
In fact, we have different stages in our life. Your career goal may change. You may need to review and adjust your goal sometimes.
Hope this helps! Good Luck!
Hope this helps.
You are off to a good start if you are dedicated and hard working. Do you already have some idea about what you would like to do as a career or what skills you would like to use in a career? If so, maybe you can find a gentle, non threatening way to to try out a particular type of work.
For example, are there volunteer opportunities in this field where less might be expected of you than there would be for a paid worker? Or maybe there are clubs, professional associations, or even trade shows you could attend to meet people in your chosen field. You want to find opportunities to meet people doing the job you are interested in.
If certain jobs seem intimidating, then maybe they are not for you. You might look around at the adults you feel comfortable around. What do they do for a living? In other words what type of people do you like being with. What qualities of theirs make you enjoy their company? Where do such people work? Or where are their skills valued.
