Don’t be afraid to think outside of the ! ❑ Connect what you are good at and passionate about, to the jobs that are out there, not the other way around! ❑ Example: You like the idea of working in the health field with children? Nursing is a great way to do it, but so is respiratory therapy, speech language pathology, physical therapist assistant, and the list goes on and on. Which career is best for you?
