Two things I have always told my daughter.
"I don't know what I want to be when I grow up, but I know what I don't want to be."
"Find a job you love and you will never work the rest of your life."
A college education has always been in the forefront of secondary education and many have obtained high paying jobs with career advancement. Some have found that after an expensive college education, job opportunities are scarce depending on the type of degree.
Engineering, and medical degrees seem to be in the top ten of vocations, however not everyone has the desire or ability to obtain these degrees.
Skilled craftsmen with trades in plumbing, carpentry, electronics, masonry, are in high demand today and income in these fields has surpassed some college degree vocations.
It amazes me to know some students seem to know at a very early age the direction they are going to go and pursue a career path as soon as they complete high school.
The commitment to complete a medical degree is expensive and is very special. If you were to question young students about a career in politics, what would you expect to hear?
With a very low approval rating of congress, many would reject the notion because of the poor ratings by the media. Not everyone would want to pursue politics however, take a look at the benefits.
No other vocation can compare with regard to limited time served comparing retirement, health care, vacations, income, and generous benefits.
One term in office will permit an individual to accrue all the benefits of a very lucrative retirement and may launch a new career as a lobbyist or a new position in government.
August is vacation time and congress will suspend its convening until September.
