Before you can determine how to choose the college that best meets your needs, you must first understand the type of education you want. There are so many opportunities out there for you; you just have to find what fits your interests, PASSION and career goals.
There are two basic types of colleges that are available:
Community, Technical and Junior Colleges: These colleges are typically two-year options and offer programs that allow students to get a license, certificate, an Associate of Arts, an Associate of Science, or an Associate of Applied Science.
Four-year Colleges and Universities: These schools are four years or longer and offer a Bachelor of Arts or Bachelor of Science. Many four-year colleges and universities also have graduate and professional degree programs for students interested in continuing their education.
Note: The type of education you want to pursue should go hand in hand with your PASSION and career goals. If you find a program that closely aligns with your passion, you will more than likely successfully graduate from college. However, if you select a program or career that YOU are truly not passionate about, you will not be motivated to graduate, or for that matter, pursue a career. The key is to find a program that you are passionate about and that you can transform into a livelong career.
So, the first step before determining that program for you…is to discover your PASSION!
Finding your true passion isn’t as simple as it may seem. Ask yourself some questions to pinpoint exactly what you were BORN to do:
• What puts a smile on your face?
• What comes easy/natural to you?
• What sparks your creativity?
• What do you LOVE to talk about? For me: Education and Life ☺
• What career would you do for free? Think about this one…An area of interest that you are SO passionate about that you would do it for free, if money wasn’t a factor.
I truly hope that this information helped. Tomorrow we will dive into Tip 2. See you then! ☺
