Joel’s Answer

In my view, there's no need to fret over finding the perfect career right away. After graduation, embrace any job opportunity that comes your way. As you grow and gain experience, the ideal career path will gradually reveal itself to you.

While you are working to figure out your career, go work for a strong government agency, so that you can start a 401K or pension. You always have to be multitasking, with regards to your daily life. its fun.

Consider what truly sparks your interest and delve into researching that area.

Remember, just because someone appears to have their career path all figured out post-graduation, doesn't necessarily mean they're satisfied with their choice. In reality, many people deviate from their initial career path.

Be wise, observe, listen, and follow the example of those you admire. There's no need to create something entirely new, unless you believe you have something superior to what already exists. Stay encouraged, your journey is just beginning.

Rebecca’s Answer

Thank you for your question. Many students have similar question. The most important is to find out what careers you have interest.
Below are my suggestions:
1. Think about what you have interest, eg your hobbies, favourite subjects, etc and identify the related careers
Eg if you like music, would you like to be a musician, singer, musical artist, music composer, music producer, etc
If you have interest in maths, would you like to be an accountant, engineer, banker, financial analyst, maths teacher, etc
2. Find out more on these careers and determine what you have interest
3. Speak to someone who are working in these careers. Seek guidance from your mentor, school career counselor, your parents, etc
4. Shortlist 1-2 careers you would like to pursue
5. Explore the entry criteria of relevant subjects in colleges
Hope this helps! Good Luck!
May Almighty God bless you!

Diane’s Answer

Hi Taylor, think about areas that really interest you and that you are passionate about. Look into shadowing professionals that are already working in those areas so you can see what the day to day is like. Look at joining clubs,. volunteer or internship in those areas of interest. Talk to school counselors to help pinpoint a career/college path. Be kind to yourself and give yourself some grace as this is not an overnight decision and you want to make sure any career you chose will keep you motivated and satisfied. Best of luck!

Brian’s Answer

You should start by looking at what you like to do and really think about going to do that work everyday for a long time. Start young and work your way up so you can be retired early and enjoy not working when that time comes. I run heavy equipment I learned young but I didn’t pursue career in union like I should have. I didn’t listen to my mom and thought I knew everything but I was to busy wanting to hang out instead of doing what would make my life easier down the road. I’m 44 still love operating machine and can’t believe I get paid to do it sometimes 😂 it’s like a video game to me but you have to take it very seriously or somebody could get really hurt. Not that we don’t take rides in the huge excavator bucket and spin around sometimes lol find something you love to do and enjoy doing. Don’t matter what other people think about it cause you have to do it everyday, so you should be happy with your career. If you don’t find career that fits you right away there is plenty more to try. Don’t go to work and hate what you do cause it will make your life miserable. Don’t ever give up, live, love, leave a legacy keep fighting for what you want in life cause you could have whatever you fight for in life. Start now.
