Planning for a career is a process, not a one-time event. It is common for high school students to have only a vague idea of the profession he or she might want to pursue. This is perfectly OK and not out of the ordinary. That being said, students are advised to make their best effort to prepare for entry into a trade school, college, or university that closely matches their interest. This preparation entails specific steps such as building a respectable GPA, obtaining good SAT scores, being involved in extracurricular activities, and distinguishing oneself through other notable achievements.
Once in college, most students will declare an academic major during their sophomore year. This too is subject to change as young adults refine their dream of which career path best suits them. To assist in this process of exploring possibilities is the academic adviser. An academic adviser is typically assigned to incoming freshman, but may change to a designated departmental adviser once the student’s academic major is declared.
Internships and practicums are very helpful in providing students a real life, hands-on experience in a chosen field of study. An internship or practicum offers a level of insight into a profession that would otherwise be unavailable. This unique educational experience has no substitute since it closely mirrors what it would be like to actually work in a professional capacity.
Planning for your education is a practical goal and one that is essential in building a great future. It is a valuable investment of time that yields tangible benefits as you navigate your academic career.
