I do not believe in growing up faster than necessary. At the same time, I do not think it is such a bad idea to think about where you'd like to be in 10 years. Believe me, you will change your mind about 100 times between now and then, and that is totally cool, but having goals and a direction you'd like to follow is key, no matter what path you choose. You guys are so lucky! You have the world in front of you and so many areas to specialize in that you probably don't even know about yet. Well, I'd like to offer you a few links to careers that are hot and getting hotter!
- Do you like gaming? I know a lot of you do. Imagine making a career out of it!? The International Game Developers Association (IGDA) has a page about game design careers that you're sure to love.
- You've spent your childhood playing with toys. You probably still do at times. Have you ever thought about designing toys? Fashion Institute of Technology (FIT) has a major in toy design that is completely amazing. Check it out.
- MSNBC had a cool article I found called 10 Hot Jobs for 2007. You can get paid to be a blogger!! Imagine that? Some other great ones too.
