Dear Amy: What would be a good job for me in the future? — Jahnae, Maple Heights, Ohio
Dear Jahnae: Deciding what you want to be when you're older can be tough because there are so many choices! Make a list of activities you enjoy. Then think about how you could turn them into a career. For example, if you like spending time with animals, you could become a veterinarian or a dog trainer. Maybe you enjoy doing things on the computer. There are tons of jobs for computer pros, such as a computer engineer or a web developer. A great website to find career ideas based on your interests is www.bls.gov/k12. Choose a topic you enjoy and learn about cool careers in that subject area.
You can also try taking a personality test online to see what kind of jobs would suit you. Try the What’s Your Job Personality? quiz at www.kidzworld.com/quiz/2815-quiz-what-is-your-job-personality. Once you've discovered your type, you’ll learn what jobs will best put your talents to use.
While these sites can help you come up with job ideas, only you can decide what career is right for you. It's also OK to change your mind later!
