COLLEGE & CAREER
Time to Interview. Okay, so you’ve taken time to look at how the activities and things you’re interested in now can help prepare you for future careers. You’ve even taken some personality inventories and found some suggestions for potential careers that match your personality. Now, it’s time to look at the resources you have in front of you. Interview adults in the fields of interest derived from the results of the activities from Weeks One and Two. 
Sometimes during this process you are able to determine that a career is a great fit for you, while other times this is a good opportunity to weed out careers that, when examined a little closer, are determined to not be a good fit for some reason or another. Perhaps the salary is not what you wanted. Perhaps the number of years of education required is a deterrent. For this step, you’re going to get down to the nitty gritty of your research to hear from adults in the fields of interest about what is really happening in that career. You will use the attached Career Inventory to help you with your interview process.

Complete: Career Inventory (Feel free to interview as many people as you want. The more information you gather, the better equipped you’ll be to narrow down your choices.)
