I always felt like there wasn't a lot of guidance for possible career paths while in High School. Specifically, no one helped me discover the types of careers that would suit my interests and the type of education I needed to get there.

If I knew then what I know now, I could be ten years ahead in my current career.

High School Background: I went to a high school in Texas where their primary focus was on men's athletics. I graduated as valedictorian but was never counseled on potential careers.
