Find the right places for the right reasons

What’s post-secondary education all about? Is it about choosing a specific career? Or is it about developing the skills you need to become successful in any number of different jobs and careers? The truth is that post-secondary can be about all of the above and more. And you definitely don’t need to have all of the answers right away. In fact, it’s ok to change your mind about what you want to get out of your post-secondary experience along the way. The key is to give yourself as many options as possible in the future. Choose the post-secondary opportunities that fit your skills and interests. Open up more doors in your future. The more you know about the different opportunities out there, the more likely you are to find that right fit.
