Deciding on a career can be one of life's most difficult decisions. Answering the question "what do you want to be when you grow up" can be a daunting task. In fact, facing this decision can paralyze young people. Some can't decide at all, while others change majors in college frequently or get stuck in low paying entry level jobs because they just don't know what they want to do.
There is no magic formula for finding the right career path to take. Sure, some people know what they are going to do for a living when they are five years old and end up doing this. But for most people things aren't that simple.
Here at Marian we have a great resource for our students.Naviance is a "one stop" research software program that can aid students in their search for the right career. In freshman year, students will be taking career and interest surveys that will match them up with different careers. In sophomore year they will be working with their counselors to see what their strengths are and what careers match up with those strengths. Next, in junior year they are looking at what universities throughout the United States have the major they want to pursue. This is a great resource for our students to start thinking about their post secondary plans.
