Udit’s Answer

Going to college immediately after high school is often recommended, but it's not a strict requirement. Your financial success after graduation (based on statistical data) hinges on your academic performance, the reputation of your college, and your chosen major. Specifically, if you earn a degree in a STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) field, you're more likely to land a well-paying job. The unemployment rate among STEM graduates is among the lowest nationwide.

It is hard to immediately find the perfect job, but you could work your way towards it.

Terrell’s Answer

When it comes to employment, there are no guarantees. That may be hard to swallow at your age, and I certainly don't want to be a dream crusher. What is guaranteed is your ability to prepare for the job that you want. Preparation + Opportunity = Success. The best way to prepare yourself for the job you want is to research the skills needed to succeed. Networking and reaching out to people in the field could create the opportunity you need to land that dream job. Find out if the company you're interested in working with offers internships. Most times (depending on your performance) can lead to a job with the company after graduation.

Best of luck to you!

Hello, Aiyana !

What an interesting question - how can I guarantee getting the perfect job. What your question reflects is that you are a responsible, insightful person and someone who is able to think about their future and wants everything to go according to plan. There are steps you can take that can put you on the right track, but nothing we do is guaranteed and everything is cause and effect with conditions. It is important that we adapt to things in life. That we can be flexible and learn from each experience.

My advice is to follow your dream, one mini-plan at a time and building your life in the present, knowing that the good, smart things you do now, will affect your future. You do not mention if you are in high school or college right now, looking toward graduation as you've mentioned. There are some things you can do now, one is to toss away any fear or insecurity about the future.

You may want to start working on a resume so that you will be prepared to submit it to job openings. Employers look at education, work experience and skills that you may have. Evaluate your resume and see what you need to do more of - more skills needed ? Look for volunteer work in something you haven't done before but are interested in. Jobs are just not guaranteed. Even promises are broken sometimes - but sometimes, when something you want passes you by, it may be for the good. Even if you can't see it than, you may realize it months or years later how things had to happen.

It is perfectly normal to want a perfect job. After all, who wants to be bored for 6 to 8 hours a day doing something that they're not interested in and feeling useless. I think that you care enough that that won't happen to you. You will define what the perfect job is and it is only up to you to take the steps that make it happen. Throw away apprehension, fear, worry - those things will not help you. What will help is more discovery of your interests, reading, studying and doing things with the care you always have. You can indeed get a job that was meant for you.

I hope this was a help and I wish you all the best in school !

Hello Aiyana!

Your eagerness to secure the ideal job for you while achieving the self-reliance you rightly deserve through a steady income is truly inspiring! Although the job markets doesn't offer absolute guarantees, your conscious decisions can certainly guide you closer to your desired outcome. To help you along the way, I suggest you consider the following three aspects:

1. What are you truly passionate about? What are the things you willingly devote extra time to because they matter to you, or topics you find yourself naturally drawn to reading about in your leisure time?
2. What activities bring you joy, and what qualities do others value and appreciate in you?
3. What opportunities within the job market align with your answers to the first two questions?

Once you've pondered these, I recommend that you examine the job descriptions and backgrounds of individuals in those specific roles to identify what skills you may need to acquire. Remember, it's perfectly okay if you don't land your dream job right off the bat. You may initially find a role that satisfies some, but not all, of your criteria. That's perfectly fine! In time, you can navigate your way to your ideal position. Best of luck to you!
