Your Career choice should definitely be something you are passionate about. “Your Passion” Something you love so much you will do for free! Shadowing or experiencing is going to be your answer to make sure you really love what you choose. How many people do you hear all the time say, “I hate my job”, or “I don’t want to go to work”, or “I wish I would have…”, well don’t let that be you. You can make sure you are doing what you love. We suggest while you are in school from the beginning, please do Internships.
An internship allows you to gain experience in a certain field you are studying or majoring in and also it helps you build your resume. Remember you are competing against people not just locally, nationally, but from all over the world, yes globally, so you need to gain enough experience as possible and internships helps you do this. Plus, it gives you the opportunity to see if you like a particular field or not. Your career choice could be something you will be doing for a long time, so you want to make sure you like it.
Most internships start interviewing first quarter January-March so you should start looking in the fall of your school year. Every major company has internships. Companies use internships as a way to find new talented individuals like you. Also, it helps companies with their diversity goals. Diversity is key to a company’s success. Companies need individuals from all backgrounds so they can serve their customers and/or create the best products.
