Setting Career Goals
By Patti Hutchison
  

1     What are your goals? A goal is something you want to do. Goals give us something to look forward to. They give us something to work for. You may have short-term goals and long-term goals. A short term goal might be to pass the science test on Friday. A long term goal might be to graduate from high school.
 
2     You are probably thinking about what kind of job you would like to have. You are starting to set your career goals. When you begin to set career goals, you have to think about your priorities. A priority is something that is important to you.
 
3     Ask yourself some questions. For example, do you like to work alone or with people? Do you like to work indoors or outside? Do you want to live close to where you are now? Or would you like to move to another place? How much money do you need to make? These are just a few of the questions you should think about when setting your career goals.
 
4     Think about your dream job. What is it that you would really like to do? Once you decide, do a lot of research. Talk to people you know who have the same kind of job. Look for information at the library and online. Maybe your school has a job shadowing program. Find out all you can about that job.
