WHAT DO YOU WANT TO BE?

 

Most adults change their career aspirations at some point. The most senior leaders typically have multiple careers behind them. When you identify which careers you might like (and definitely wouldn't like), you can customize your education and look for internships that fit the future you would like to achieve.

But discovering what career is best for you is tough, and it takes some practice. We hope that every Lighthouse student will experience increased confidence when thinking about the future, develop a repertoire of skills to help them identify which careers might fit their interests, and learn some specific skills to increase their chances of success.
