Episode 34: Preparing for Your Dream Job While in High School

January 24, 2022

When do you find "the one"?

Some people don't pinpoint their perfect career path until midway through college. For others, that true passion waits to reveal itself after years of being in the workforce.

But for a lucky few, that dream job shines brightly early on. These ambitious high schoolers are certain of what they want to do with their degrees before they even begin their college search.

This episode of College Admissions Insider is for that last group — the high schoolers who are charting paths to their dream jobs as we speak. In this episode, we’ll provide some tips to guide those students as they lay the groundwork for their future success.

Our guest, Pamela Keiser, is the executive director of career services at Bucknell's Center for Career Advancement. She helps us discuss everything from how to evaluate colleges based on career goals to gaining practical job experience while in high school.
