Choosing Wisely A Career And College

By Pamela Barletta

“You have to leave the city of your comfort and go into the wilderness of your intuition. What you'll discover will be wonderful. What you'll discover is yourself.” Alan Alda. Choosing a career and college may be attached to a number of factors like the location of the college, the services, etc., and influences, for example, what other think is best for you, and the opinions of others. The purpose of this speech is to guide you to choose what is best for you and your future.

Choosing a career is one of the most important decisions you make in life. The decision you take is the decision that will determine your future; the way you want to live depends on your choice.

Life is only one, so make sure, that what you choose is the best for you, for you to be more sure on your decision, close your eyes and try to picture yourself in the future. Your future is in hands of your intuition and what you think is best for you. The best way to choose a career is to trust yourself; when looking for colleges consider your options and ask yourself if the choice suits you. Sometimes, the best for you is not what you think it is, so try to gain experience before making your decision. You have to be honest with what you want and what you can do. Determine your skills; aptitude tests can help you determine what you’re your abilities. Think on what you really like to do and what people like about you, a very helpful tip.

Finding a career or college should really be more about finding out who you are and what your purpose is on this earth. Self-discovery is one of the most important aspects to complete in order to realize what you really want; you should ask yourself what you really want, what you expect in life. The past sometimes gives us clues about what we want. Also, extracurricular activities can help you discover more about what you like. Most of the times we don’t know ourselves; when we analyze what we like, we discover what we want to do for the rest of our lives. The opinions of your family and close friends can help you find more about yourself. By considering who your best friends are you can find out more about your own judgment.

Everyone has a purpose in life, and, by choosing colleges and careers we are on our way to discover what our purpose is. Some of you are obsessed to know what your job in this world is; to think on what you want, and what you like is the first step to discover your role in this world.

Choosing a college involves a lot of research. Research what the college has to offer; the size of the college is very important for your college experience. Some colleges have special programs that you can take advantage of; you should know about the events that the college celebrates and what students regularly do. Investigate what rules and services the college has; also, ask if financial aid is available. This knowledge can be very useful. The history of the college shows more information about the college; you should investigate if the college has internship opportunities. Gain knowledge on the requirements of colleges; get informed about whether or not the college accepts international students. Colleges demand you to complete hours in certain subjects like English, math, and history, and some colleges request you tests results of SATs and/or the TOEFL.

Choosing a career and college may be attached to a number of influences and factors, but, the decision is all yours; after all, you are deciding your future. So, make your decision, consider what you really like, and what you are good at; be ready to live your future!
