Right now, in high school, we have our whole lives ahead of us and this is the point in our lives when we must begin thinking about our future career. Just remember plans can easily be changed. Experts predict that the average person will change careers, not just jobs, more than five times in his or her lifetime.

The first step to finding the right career for you is to take time to think about what you like to do. Do you excel in science, history, English, or math? Maybe art or speech? There are so many opportunities and different types of careers you can explore. The second step is to challenge yourself in high school, but make sure you don’t become overwhelmed. When you can, take the most challenging classes because in return you will learn more and it will look good on your resume.

Obviously, you need to stay focused on getting good grades, but don’t completely overload your schedule. The third step is to talk with as many adults as possible about careers and colleges. Especially talk to your teachers because they know your strengths and weaknesses. Remember to take your SAT and ACT early so you don’t find yourself stressed out your senior year. High school is a major transition for teens as we move into adulthood and on to more adult issues like work, careers, and college.

Take advantage of advanced placement classes, and no matter where you go after high school, never stop learning, growing, and following your dreams.
