Plan Your Future
How would you like to have a career you really love someday? While it may seem a little early to be planning your life, if you could have a career based on your talents and the activities you enjoy, your job could be a pleasure rather than a drudge.
For instance, if you like adventure and working outdoors, you could be a landscape architect, archeologist or environmental scientist. Activities such as designing a school garden or scouting, and subjects such as science and social studies, can teach you more about these jobs.
Do you enjoy art? Computer animation, video game design and visual effects animation are just a few options available in these fields. During your school years there are contests, technology classes and clubs you can join to help enhance your skills.
If you’re comfortable speaking in front of a crowd and communicating new ideas, you could have a future in public relations, speech writing, marketing or law. Develop your skills by joining debate, theater or the school paper. Check out CareerShip, mappingyourfuture.org/planyourcareer/careership/
