Because Your First Job Isn't Your Last

Think about what you're doing for money right now: Do you want to do that for the rest of your life?

Few people do. But getting that job you’ll enjoy and get paid the amount you want takes planning, training, education, experience, flexibility and planning. Did we mention planning?

And keep in mind that at this point in your life, time spent learning is only going to help. A person with a four-year college degrees earns, on average, $1 million more during a career than a person with just a high school diploma.

And if a four-year program isn’t for you - yet - you’ll need to consider two-year programs, vocational training or any other way to get knowledge that’ll help your career.

So get started now.

  • What skills do you have and how do they apply to the workplace?
  • What workplaces need your skills?
  • What do you actually like doing?
  • What education or training do you need to do that?

Here’s some of what you can do:

Step One: Assess your skills and interests

Step Two: Make a Plan

Step Three: Get the Knowledge and Skills

Step Four: Start Looking

Step Five: Enjoy Success, but Don’t Stop There
