“What do you want to be when you grow up?” We are all guilty of asking kids and teens this question, as if we are expecting an answer that is going to stick with them for the rest of their lives. Most of us who have been in our careers for a few years, know that one thing is certain when it comes to careers: things are surely going to change and that uncertainty and unplanned events play a huge role in how our careers unfold. That’s why we spent last week at our Summer Career Camp welcoming high school students to the U of A campus, dispelling myths about careers, guiding them in widening their perspectives and encouraging them to focus on their next steps, as opposed to helping them confirm what they want to be when they grow up.
