It is not uncommon for 17- and 18-year-olds to struggle with the decision of what to do after high school. For years, they’ve been told that they “need” to decide on a career to determine next steps – but how many high school juniors and seniors know exactly what they want to do with the next few years, let alone the rest of their lives? Fortunately, there are a variety of paths that students can venture along to find a job or career that interests them. Furthermore, there are indicators of who they are now that can help them decide what to do next.In college, students will take classes in a variety of disciplines and potentially find a field that interests them. Their time in college may also include internship opportunities, networking events, and the chance to develop professional skills through clubs and organizations on a college campus. Ultimately, their college experience will help to prepare them for a job after graduation.An apprenticeship is somewhat similar to a trade school degree; however, the education involved can take three to five years. Though the learning commitment is longer, apprentices start getting paid on day one, and they learn exclusively on-the-job.Students can also enlist right after high school and have access to education benefits while they are on active duty or as a veteran.
