STEP 4:  Record of Achievements

It’s never too early to start gathering examples of how wonderful you are! Most of us don’t think it’s important to save a “good job” letter or to document an award you get in High School, but chances are pretty good that you will eventually be asked to talk about your awards, achievements, honors, clubs. Your “Achievement” folder will come in handy when you are applying to colleges, applying for jobs, internships, and even when you are applying for a business loan with a bank.

STEP 5:  Build Your Personal Brand

It’s never too early to start building your own personal brand. You’ll be amazed at how much a future employer knows about you before even walking in the door. Almost everything you do has the potential to ruin a career, a promotion, a loan, even a life. Social media has taken our privacy and thrown it out the window. The sooner you understand that and behave accordingly, the better for your future. The following steps will help you begin to build your brand, even while you are still in High School!

STEP 6:  Research Colleges

Making the decision to attend college is huge. You may be moving away from home for the first time, living with total strangers, not to mention that suddenly you’re the only one responsible for getting yourself to those 8am classes. But simply deciding to attend college is just the tip of the iceberg. Where will you go? How will you decide which college is the best fit for you? What do you need to do to get accepted? Should you visit several campuses? We will help to get you started on the selection process.

STEP 7:  Internships

An internship is one of the best ways to get your foot in the door of a chosen career. It will give you an inside look at your future occupation and will help you confirm (or not) that this is, in fact, how you want to spend your life. It is also an excellent way to develop workplace skills that may be new to you. In fact, employers are actually starting to expect that most candidates will have experience as an intern for those very reasons. Click below to find out more!

STEP 8:  Scholarships

It is unbelievable how many scholarships go unawarded simply because students don’t know that they are available. Don’t let this be you! A scholarship is free money that you DON’T HAVE TO PAY BACK! Should I repeat that? You DON’T have to pay this money back!
