Summertime is here! A new season signals a new chapter for many high school and college students. Some use this time in productive ways while others aimlessly let the days slip by. But foremost in the minds of most of them is happiness--we all seek it relative to our stage in life, but for many students at this particular time in their lives, thoughts turn to their futures and what will make them happy and purposeful.
Many are confused about the best path forward. Many high school students wonder about the next step after graduation--will it be college, work, or something else? Many college students wonder if they are in the right major leading to a career that's right for them.
Making a good choice about a college major and career is hard. Making the right choice is not an intuitive process. We aren't born knowing how to do it. So many students spend much unnecessary time, money, and effort trying to make the right choice. I'm offering two programs this summer designed to lead students to confident decisions about their career directions. I've used this approach with hundreds of students over the years and it works!
In these programs, I start with the Highlands Ability Battery, a phenomenal assessment of abilities that is incredibly helpful in career decision-making. Interests, personality, and values also need to be aligned with abilities for the choice to be the best. Assessments in these areas are excellent tools to lead to a well-developed decision about one's career. As a result, certain careers rise to the top of best possibilities and these are explored for the most effective choice of college major and career.
Take the guesswork out of decisions about college majors and careers. Eliminate the confusion by using a tried-and-true process that concludes with an action plan about confidently moving forward. Consider taking my bootcamp at LSU June 17-21 or my weekend bootcamp July 20, 27, and 28. A Virtual Bootcamp is also available.
