“The truth is most students choose a job they’re interested in based on either a ‘dream job’ (like professional sports or movie star) or something they have experience with— often what their mom or dad does for a living. Few students, even the older ones, know their own strengths and personality traits—much less how those traits might align with various career pathways.”
