Dear Faith: I'm interested in different things like sports, art and science. How do I choose the career best for me?

Faith says: It's great that you have different interests, and you are thinking ahead about possible career choices. High school is the perfect time to begin exploring careers, and your interests are a good place to start!

Career planning takes time and effort, but the process will help you discover which occupations may suit you best in terms of your skills and abilities. I recommend that you utilize the Career Planning section. Use the Learn About Yourself resources to explore how your interests match-up with careers. Use the Explore Careers resources to research and compare careers, learn about education and skill requirements, review salary earnings, and more.

Ultimately, the research and exercises will help you realize which careers are a natural fit for your interests. Good luck!
