Since the holiday season is a such a great time for reflection, I’d like to give a Careers Out There shout-out to say “happy holidays” and thank you for visiting the site as your career video and career advice resource. I’d also like to thank the amazing guests from all over the U.S. who have taken the time to share their stories and career profiles via our video interviews.
In the past months, we got to learn about all kinds of careers from business careers like accounting career paths and mortgage lending careers to healthcare careers like being a paramedic and an emergency room nurse. We also learned about engineering careers, unique careers like environmental health careers and a whole lot more.
The past year also brought the honor of our exciting partnership with The McGraw-Hill Companies, allowing us to reach high school students nationwide with our career videos. Thanks to all of you for making it special.
Your Big Opportunity
As the year winds down and you take time for reflection with friends and family, this is a perfect, convenient time for you to get all kinds of ideas about what would make the right career for you. While gathered around the tree or the menorah or a giant family reunion dinner or even your local bar, ask people about their jobs: what do they do every day; what’s it really like; what do they like about it; what are the biggest challenges; what skills and personality types make the right fit for their path; what educational background is necessary…….Ask people if you could visit them at work while you’re either on vacation from school or taking time to investigate a career change. Doing this with the holiday setting won’t even feel like networking (even though it is)!
