When in highschool does the school start talking about career paths or what I can do after highschool?
Hi I'm a junior right now in highschool and once I got into my junior year I thought they would talk to me more about career paths and what I could do after I graduate but they haven't and I would just like to know when they started for you or when they do. Thanks!
Deborah and Susan are correct in their answers. In my case, it wasn't so easy and straight-forward. I had to work at it. Don't worry. And we all don't all have to go to a four-year university. Good luck, Sage!
If college is in your future plans, it's crucial to start researching the necessary exams, like the SAT or ACT, which typically begin in your junior year and continue into your senior year. Your guidance counselor or Brace Advisor (if your school provides one) should initiate a conversation about your post-high school career path early in your senior year.
Remember, not all careers necessitate a college degree; some only require two-year programs. I strongly encourage you to reflect on what brings you joy or what you envision doing in the long run. Do you enjoy interacting with people? Do you dream of owning your own business? Do you prefer working collaboratively as part of a team or going solo?
An often-neglected aspect is the annual salary associated with your chosen career and the cost (tuition) you'll need to bear. It's perfectly fine if you're still unsure about your future path. However, it's beneficial to start exploring your options to help narrow down your choices.
