I Am on My Way to My Dream Career

It took me many years to figure out what I wanted to do with my life career-wise. I first entered college with the hope of becoming a psychologist. After learning just how crowded that field is, I changed my focus. My dad told me that I should get a finance and business degree in order to apply at Warwick Associates where he works. I had always enjoyed dad sharing stories about his work, so I began to think he had a good point.

First, I went to work with him one day to see what exactly he does in person. It was one thing to hear him talk about it over the years, but quite another to see him in action. We spent a good portion of the day in his office while he pointed out what he was doing on the computer, phone calls, etc. It was all very interesting to me.

For the last half of the day, dad walked me around to meet many of his associates. They were all very kind to me. Some of them already knew why I was there that day and had set aside some time to talk to me about their jobs and ask them questions as well. I had already made up a list of questions before I arrived that day. I wanted to know what kind of degree they had, why they chose this particular company, how long they had been there, the reasons they liked the company and so much more.

By the end of the day, I was sure that I wanted to work there. That was four years ago, and I did change my major at school so that I could focus on landing my new job after graduation. I did a lot of research online to learn even more about the company and what they expected of me. I also researched how to ace an interview, making a proper resume and cover letter, how to dress for an interview and much more. I am happy to say that I landed an internship with them. I have been interning for them for a year, and they told me last week that they plan to hire me full time starting next month.
