When to start thinking about a career?
Deciding what to do with the rest of your life is going to be one of the most complex decisions you will have to make. Most guidance counselors will probably advise you, that it is never to early to begin planning for your career. While most students will begin in their Junior and Senior years, it doesn't hurt to begin the process even in Junior High.
Your Proactive Career Planning Timeline (Grades 9 through 12)
Freshman and Sophomore Years: Assess your interests, skills, values, educational preferences, and personality. Explore and learn about occupations that match your personal characteristics.
Junior Year: Begin to narrow down your options. Talk to your guidance counselors, get to know people in your fields of interest. Find out what it takes to get from where you are now to where you would like to be in a few years. Take classes that are relevant to your plans. If you are college bound - begin to visit schools that have the training you desire.
Senior Year: If you are college bound - get those applications out early. For those of you who are not bound for college - prepare that resume and get out on job interviews. Don't wait until the last minute when everyone else is also looking.
