Choose a Career
Do you have any idea what you want to do for a career when you grow up? If so, it’s never too early to see if you are picking something that matches your talents and interests. If you want to be a teacher, for instance, you might volunteer for after-school tutoring at your school. This could give you an idea of what age group you would like to work with and what subject matter you would enjoy teaching.
If you want to be an artist, join the art club to gain more exposure to your subject of interest. Future band directors, conductors and musicians can learn to play instruments at a early age. The ability to read sheet music is just one skill that will come in handy whether you decide to go into musical theater, performing or teaching.
Many communities offer recreational instruction for kids. Let’s say you want to be a chef when you grow up. If you take an introductory cooking class and learn the basics now, you can begin developing your talent and learn more about the industry. Not sure what career you want to pursue yet?
