All things college and career

It’s always a good idea, before you spend lots of time and/or money investing in a career, to do your research on the profession to make sure it is a good fit for you. There are a few ways I provide this opportunity to the young people I work with. One of which, I wanted to share with you today.

It’s always a good idea, before you spend lots of time and/or money investing in a career, to do your research on the profession to make sure it is a good fit for you. There are a few ways I provide this opportunity to the young people I work with. One of which I wanted to share with you today.

The podcast All Things College and Career was created with the goal to provide a resource for all people that are researching careers, colleges, or academic majors.

Meg and Bobbie, sisters and college advisors, interview experienced professionals, from a variety of careers, asking them questions like: How did you get started in your career? What sort of education or training would you recommend to someone interested in this career? If you went to college, can you tell us about that experience? What is a typical day like on your job? What are the advantages of your job? What are the drawbacks? What are the three things you love about your job?

They also interview college and career experts that can assist the listeners with all their college and career planning needs.

I sat down recently to answer these questions and to provide some tips and ideas as a college and career coach. The interview covers a variety of ideas and tips including:

  • The six-step process of helping teens find a career direction
  • How teens can learn decision-making skills that they can use throughout their lives
  • Alternatives to college and who they are right for

Please join us for this fun and informative conversation. You can listen on their website or anywhere you get your podcasts.
