Hello UCHS Students,
Each week I will be sending an email that lists one or two careers for you to review. This website is a great resource to do some research and identify answers to questions like:
What they do on the job?
What is the work environment?
How to become one? Education requirements?
Pay and Salary information
Job outlook over the next 20 years? Will the career be there when you are ready for it?
This website is created with statistical data from across the United States by the Bureau of Labor and Statistics. It is the most reliable resource for identifying your interest and possible career choices to ensure your future.
Other questions that you have to ask are:
How comfortable do you want to live?
Do you want a family?
Do you want to own your own house?
Do you want to own a car or more than one?
Do you want to be able to take vacations and travel?
You don't have to decide or answer any of these questions now. You do however need to start planning for your future and take the right steps at the right time. Delaying these kinds of decisions can make it harder to achieve your goal.
Please know that I am rooting for each and every one of you and your continued success whatever that looks like and however you have defined it.
Here are the links for two careers. They are both in the legal field. One requires a college degree and one does not. When reviewing these, focus on the differences and identify your preferences.
Paralegal and Legal Assistants
I encourage you to have fun with this website. Help yourself grow your interests and chart your own path to accomplish your goals. Please feel free to contact me directly by coming to the counseling office, emailing me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Feel free to reach out to Dr. Sikes Brown too.
