Jocelyne’s Answer

Hi! One thing I recommended if you're really unsure what to do is to take the 16-personalities quiz (Myers Briggs personality test) very helpful. They had us take it in law school to help with group work, but the free test online is very good. It's obviously not 100% right, but it can give you career choices that may match your personality. You can use those options as a starting point for the rest of your research.

Another thing is to consider what you really like to do. As in, what is something that you like doing so much that you would do it for free? Then, start researching ways to make money doing that thing. As the saying goes, do what you love and the money will follow.

A third thing I would recommend is to look at the adults and professionals in your life, on TV, In the media, and ask yourself if you could do what any of them do -if you could have their life - would you enjoy that? If you find someone's life/career that you like, reach out and ask them how they got there.

Hello,

If you are currently a high school student, I recommend to see if you high school offers science, business or arts courses and consider taking them. This is a great opportunity to dive into what you excel at and what you are passionate about. On another note, take advantage of the volunteer opportunities in your communities that will allow you to discover the right path for you !

Good luck!

Hey Johnathan! Your school may require you to follow a liberal arts curriculum (sometimes known as the "core" in school) and this means that you have to take classes in a variety of disciplines in order to graduate. You can use this as a way to take courses in math, history, english, etc. in your first year in order to explore your interests. In addition, you typically have until the middle of your second year to officially declare your major so you have some time to explore your options!
