Best Advice: Be Intentional About Your Career Future

High School did not prepare me to pick a career. There were so many things I could have been good at. To choose one was to not choose a hundred others. I chose one path, discovered its pitfalls and changed to another. I couldn’t focus and not having a focus meant I did not have a goal. Looking back it would have helped to have criteria other than what I enjoyed doing or what I was good at. Those criteria would have been the salary potential, the job market, the cost and duration of education required the career trajectory and the sacrifices necessary to succeed.
