"How do I know what the right career path is for me?"
If you are finishing high school this year, or graduating soon, this question will likely be at the forefront of your mind. What makes this question so difficult to solve is that a key part to answering it is really knowing "YOU."
What are your interests, values, strengths, and weaknesses? Do you care deeply about anything topic, issue, or subject matter? How do you enjoy learning and growing as a person?
Job fairs, or career fairs, can be a great opportunity to help you answer these questions. The events will give you a chance to learn more about an industry you're curious about, as well as hear from people who've gone through the exact same process you are going through right now.
