    2. Research Careers!  Use the same sites listed above to continue to research careers that interest you.
    3. Think about education, some careers require additional education beyond high school and some you can learn on the job.  Pick what is right for you:
      • 4-year universities (earn a Bachelors degree)
      • 2-year colleges (earn an Associates degree, certification and/or transfer to a 4-year university)
      • Technical and Trade Schools - these can be 6 months-two years in length
      • Apprenticeships (on the job training)
      • Military 
    4. Research colleges and training programs.  Consider requirements for the career you are interested in, cost of attendance, and wages that can be earned upon completion.
