Why you Need a Career Plan before College and How to do So Part 3


This is part 3 of the tutorial and it covers shadowing/experience.

Sample Problem

Use the following information to answer the question below.


In order to truly know what job is best for you, it would benefit to participate in or observe careers in person. If you may want to be a lawyer, contact a local lawyer through email and ask to shadow him or her on the job. It may be awkward, but you will be surprised at how excited and motivated people will get when you show an interest in their career; therefore, they will likely be very helpful and nice.

If the shadowing ordeal is not necessary and you already know what career you might want, then go into an entry-level position in that field. If no relatable entry-level positions are available, then you can always go for an internship – even if it is unpaid. Experience is a key component to acquiring the careers you desire, so do not falter.

What would likely happen if you ask a stranger about their career?


People are glad to share information about their career and help anyone interested out because it makes them feel important to be noticed for what they do and have others who are interested in them and their insights.
