Your Future Path
By CalPac's ASB Student Council
Have you ever wondered what you want to do when you grow up? Sure! We all have. Now, have you considered college? Have you thought about what school you want to go to? What about a trades school? Or a certification course? Have you considered those? There are so many options open to us today. Just as each of us are unique, so are the paths we will lead. College may, or may not, be for us. However, no matter which path we choose, we must have direction.
Thinking about the future can sometimes be overwhelming. To help us choose a fulfilling path, and find direction, our school has many resources available. Along with counselors and teachers, we regularly have interviews with different professionals. This is where you have the opportunity to ask questions about their career (and what path they took to get there). We also have NEPRIS events where professionals showcase their talents, allowing you to see what it’s like in their day-to-day operations. Our counselors recently held Career Week. If you missed the activities and presentations, email your counselor for a recording of the presentation or a copy of the activity held.
Throughout the year CalPac has a variety of events related to choosing your career path. Once you know which career you’d like to go into, then you can start considering how to fulfill that goal -- which college, trade school or certification you’ll need to accomplish your goal.
Don’t just think about college. Think about the big picture. Come to our monthly NEPRIS events and reach out to our counselors when considering your future career and school.
