S: Start Somewhere

Start Somewhere: 5 Lives Activity

Imagine you have the ability to live five completely different "career lives." There are no limits - absolutely no potential for failure, no financial restrictions, no lack of training, no family responsibilities holding you back, no lack of any kind of resources.

For each life, answer these questions: What are you doing in that life? What industry are you working in? Where are you living? How much money are you making? Who are you interacting with? Who do you know, and who knows you? Be creative as you wish.

W: Why did you choose these lives?

Do they match YOU? Because it's YOUR future. YOU decide what comes next and what is right and realistic for YOU.

A: Ask Questions

Which of your 5 lives would you like to explore first? Do you know how to use RuReadyND to help you explore this life? Do you know how to job shadow to gain a better understanding of the career in this life? Are there training programs or colleges that have majors related to this life?

G: Get Started or Go Back

Get started by answering your questions (above in the Ask Questions section) and get connected with Mrs. A. in the counseling office to start exploring, researching, and learning more about the future you choose. Or...Go Back and explore another of your 5 lives.
