Yuma, Arizona (NAPSI) - School may soon be out if you are a graduating senior, but that doesn’t mean you don’t have homework. Here are some tips to help you navigate the new responsibilities in your life:
• Discuss your career goals with counselors, teachers and family and ask their advice.
• Gather information on careers that interest you. Talk with people who are working in those occupations and find out what it takes to succeed.
• Create a résumé to use in job application and create a list of admission requirements for schools you would like to attend.
• If you are a young man, register with the Selective Service System. Remember, registration is required by law within 30 days of turning 18.
