Where it starts: career research
I met with a student yesterday who had plans to head towards the same career as his father and older brother. Trouble is, he’s not either of the two. His interests, passions, and gifts are distinct and not typical of others happily employed in that field.
But, the student didn’t know much about other career options, which resulted in his very valid question: how do people find out what’s out there?
That’s an excellent question indeed. How do you go about locating career possibilities? Especially when new options arise, seemingly overnight.
